Former musician and controversial Instagram influencer, Tunde Ednut’s Instagram account has been suspended for the second time.
The suspension is coming three days after he attained one million followers on the platform.
Ednut’s account (@tundeednut), which had nearly 2.6 million followers, was suspended ‘indefinitely’ over claims that it violated the app’s terms and conditions on December 22, 2020.
On January 10, he rejoined the platform with another handle (@kingtundeednut) and in less than three days raked in over one million followers due to the support from some of his celebrity friends.
Before his account got suspended, as at the early hours of Wednesday, when he gathered a million followers, he did a N1million ‘giveaway’.
It was learnt that Ednut’s second suspension came as a result of claims he had put out a series of posts, which allegedly bordered on degrading and body-shaming women, cyberbullying fellow celebrities and engaging in spamming activities that went against Instagram’s policies.
Instagram in its ‘account disable policy’ stated: “We disable accounts that have a certain percentage of violating content. We are now rolling out a new policy where, in addition to removing accounts with a certain percentage of violating content, we will also remove accounts with a certain number of violations within a window of time.
“Similarly, to how policies are enforced on Facebook, this change will allow us to enforce our policies more consistently and hold people accountable for what they post on Instagram.”
Meanwhile, a Nigerian relationship blogger, Joro Olumofin revealed in December 2020 that he was suing Tunde Ednut in Atlanta for trolling him.
He took the decision after his court case in Nigeria did not yield desirable results.
