On January 12, Bella Thorne uploaded a series of Instagram Stories slamming Instagram’s new violation rules, and how it's affecting her older posts.
In the stories, Bella rants about the violation rules, saying that these rules weren't in place when she "posted" her older pictures.
I “I just wanna talk about for a second, these new “Instagram violations”.
I "Okay, first of all, they be f**king violating your s**t for s**t that was old! Like, as if you guys had those f**king violations when I posted that f**king pic! Like, are you kidding me?"
Bella then compares it to "banning alcohol" and then jailing those who drank it while it was still legal.
I "That’s like banning alcohol from everyone here, and then being like, “Hey, by the way, you - you drink alcohol back when it was legal? [...] Well, guess what? Now you’re all in jail! F**k you! That is what Instagram is like right now.”
So, what exactly is Bella slamming Instagram for?
It appears that Bella's pictures on Instagram are being flagged for violating Instagram rules, and may have been removed as a result. However, these appear to target her older posts which Bella claims to have been uploaded before the new violation rules came into force.
Meanwhile, Bella hasn't always been against Instagram.
Back in October, Bella had praised the popular platform for removing its "cosmetic surgery” filters after concerns that they were negatively affecting users' mental health.
I "So proud of Instagram for removing the plastic surgery themed filters I have been saying this needs to be done for a while this is not good for our mental health and stability ❤️❤️."
