American rapper, Boosie Badazz is suing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after his Instagram account was shut down in the Month of August for posting racy content material.
During a recent sit-down with VladTV, the 38-year-old rapper stated he was suing the tech guru for $20 million. He claims the platform’s decision to deactivate his account took a heavy toll on his business ventures.
Boosie alleges he was targeted due to his race, declaring that there are many individuals who have been banned from Instagram or for posting ‘derogatory things’, however, those accounts resorted.
“[Zuckerberg] made some of my business ventures go down, so I am suing him now. I am submitting a lawsuit against him now,” he stated. “He stopped me off Instagram and he didn’t put me back on Instagram. And that is affecting my enterprise,” Boosie stated and added that different people who have carried out worse have been allowed back on.
“That is the primary time my Instagram has ever been taken from me,” he continued. “So you can give other 2 million individuals their Instagram again for derogatory issues they did? And I posted a woman with an emoji’s over her. This is discrimination. Something is wrong. Somebody must be mad ’cause I said their name wrong and they’re trying to chastise me.”
“And my Black people are starting to tell me, ‘Boosie, this man is a racist. He knows you affect the Black community and make them smile every morning. Why is he not giving you your page back when gives all these people their web page back. He might be trying to stop us from smiling’ … You’re going too far. I had ten million followers. You’re f*cking up my income … you’re showing discrimination.”
Boosie is seeking $20 million, which he claims has been his lost income from losing his page.
