Milo Banned from Instagram **UPDATE** Account Restored


Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been banned from Instagram, adding the photo-orientated social network to the list of platforms Yiannopoulos is banned from after his permanent suspension from Twitter on Tuesday.

Attempts to access Yiannopoulos’ Instagram account will return users with a “user not found” notification, and all of his uploaded photographs have been removed.

Yiannopoulos’ manager Timothy Treadstone, who also goes by the name of Baked Alaska, confirmed the ban on Twitter just moments ago.

The move comes after Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter on Tuesday after an online spat with Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones.


Yiannopoulos’ account has now been restored, with a notification from Instagram stating “Account Reactivated.” Treadstone said the account was restored after he reached out to Facebook, and he was told they are investigating why Yiannopoulos’ account was deactivated in the first place.

**UPDATE 2**

Treadstone said he spoke with a representative from Facebook by phone who “said it was a technical error and apologized for the glitch.”
