Earlier this week, the CEO of Instagram is shedding light on why the company had to temporarily suspend Tory’s IG Live capabilities.

The CEO explained why they had to pull the plug on Lanez’s “fun”. The answer isn’t that surprising — it’s was considered X-Rated and went against the terms of service for IG. He was quoted saying;
“Quarantine Radio is great, so shout out to Tory Lanez for that,” Mosseri begins. “The lives have been great, the lives with the fans have been great. But you can’t have nudity on Instagram. “That’s part of our community guidelines, it’s part of the rules and we can’t make exceptions. And on a couple of those lives, on two accounts, there was nudity so we had to stop the live.

“There’s a short period of time where you can’t go live again. We have to stick to the rules otherwise why do we have them? But generally, big fan of Tory Lanez, big fan of Quarantine Radio. I hope it comes back soon, but no nudity! We can’t have that.”
