Update (May 19, 2014):
Don’t expect Rihanna to make any kind of return to Instagram. On May 19, BadGirlRiRi took to another social media outlet (aka Twitter) to break the news by slamming impostors.
"#PHAKE !!!! Let’s be clear, I do NOT have an IG account!," she captioned a screenshot of an Instagram claiming to be backed by Rihanna. Duly noted, Ri!
Original story (May 6, 2014):
We knew Rihanna was a bad girl, but we didn’t know just how bad she was!
The Barbadian songstress has been going head-to-head with Instagram the past few days, and her account is still coming up missing! Just days after posting very racy nipple shots from a magazine photoshoot on her page, the “Diamonds” singer’s page was put in jeopardy of being deactivated and was soon taken offline by Instagram. Looks like X-rated shots landed homegirl in some hot water!
After getting the boot, Instagram released a statement about the mix-up that took one of the most popular figures off their social media platform. “This account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and was very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience,” the company said.
Apparently they reactivated Rihanna’s account, but something else must have happened since because her page still registers a “Page Not Found” message.
Since she’s one of the biggest stars on the social media site, it’s a bit curious why she’s not up and running again. Hopefully @badgalriri will find her way home soon!
Are you shocked that Rihanna’s Instagram account got taken down? Should she be allowed to post such racy photos? Hit the comments and sound off!
