Instagram Deletes and Flags Shirtless Boy’s With Long Hair

Instagram deletes long hair boy

Moms are posting the hashtag “#longhairedboyrevolution” in protest against Instagram.

The social media site, Instagram, which is owned by Facebook has been flagging and deleting photographs of long-haired, shirtless boys because its algorithms are mistaking them for girls.

Tori Spooner is a Florida mom whose son, Parker, 4, loves his long hair and “never wears a shirt” because the family practically lives at the beach shared her frustration saying. “[Facebook] sent it and said it was sexual and we weren’t allowed to have it. It was pretty much just a warning,” she told the outlet. “Then the second time it happened… [Facebook] banned me for a couple of days.”

Soon after that, her Instagram feed was flagged and eventually, her entire account deleted by the app, although it’s back online now.

Instagram Guidelines

  • Post photos and videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience.
  • We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.
  • People like to share photos or videos of their children. For safety reasons, there are times when we may remove images that show nude or partially-nude children. Even when this content is shared with good intentions, it could be used by others in unanticipated ways. You can learn more here.
