Rittenhouse Says Instagram Disabled His Account AGAIN, Then It's Reinstated

December 11th, 2021 8:18 AM

Kyle Rittenhouse said his Instagram account was disabled again just days after his social media accounts were reinstated. Rittenhouse was acquitted of all criminal charges against him.

"Hey @instgram why did you disable my account again?!" Rittenhouse asked on Twitter. He added that he “did nothing wrong” and posted screenshots of his seemingly disabled account.

His account was reportedly reinstated hours later, and Instagram attributed the suspension to “a mistake,” according to Newsweek. “I’m back!! Thanks for restoring my account!” Rittenhouse concluded.

Facebook recently decided to remove some of its restrictions on pro-Rittenhouse content after his acquittal. "After the verdict in Kenosha, we rolled back the restrictions we had in place that limited search results from returning content related to key terms including Kyle Rittenhouse," Andy Stone, spokesperson for Facebook's parent company Meta, said of the decision.

"While we will still remove content that celebrates the death of the individuals killed in Kenosha, we will no longer remove content containing praise or support of Rittenhouse," he added.
