Instagram removes post of the woman who live-blogged her rape, says it doesnt "follow community guideline"

Instagram has removed a post of an Cape Town-based American woman who live-blogged her own rape ordeal on the social media platform. Amber Amour who was in South Africa to promote her “Stop Rape, Educate” campaign shared on her Instagram account that she was raped in Cape Town while sharing a shower with a friend.

One of the photos the 27-year-old posted was taken immediately after she was raped.
Instagram removed it two days ago saying: "Amber we removed your post because it doesn’t follow our community guidelines."

Responding to the ban, Amour took to her Instagram page saying that she will not be cowed into silence.
"You deleted the caption documenting the rape from my page but guess what, that shit has gone viral. It’s all over the internet so whoever was behind the deleting of that honestly did nothing.
"Survivors of rape are called liars and frauds every day! I find it absolutely appalling that the caption was deleted. I will not be silenced. I will keep speaking my truth.”
She said initially only the caption had been deleted, but after she reposted it, the entire post was deleted. See her full post below:
"Instagram deleted the caption describing the rape AGAIN after I reposted it yesterday. This is evidence of a crime and Instagram obviously and openly supports rapists and rape culture by silencing survivors of sexual assault who speak up on social media. There are dozens of rape fetish pages, child porn pages, and pages that depict the enslavement of women but lo & behold a woman speaks up against these things and they silence her. I will not be silenced. This is only the beginning and I don't need @instagram to start a revolution because the revolution has already begun!"

But deleting the post is not necessary . She was only using her case to campaign against rape!

What's the fuss all about then? Since IG doesn't want it cos it violate community guidelines, she should take it somewhere else, its that easy.

I support them for deleting that shit, I find her story very jammed, may be the boy did not rammed her well and she got angry and started shouting rape,all this demented drug addicts will not let people rest. She can now go to hell and meet her father the devil for all I care.


Who kiss a stranger on the lips?
Who takes shower with a stranger?
Who was rape and woke up and still continues with the rape?
Only her, only in her world.
Onye isi mgbaka.

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Go and have seats attention seeker, have strangers finished?
go and look for more strangers to share the shower with. Rubbish,

She's crazy bitch. She agreed to take a bath with a guy NAKED now she's screaming rape. Anything to promote her campaign.

white Berry said...

Don't really know that's against instagram rules and regulations but like she said it must ve gone viral be4 d deleting so wat was d need deleting such.

Nseabasi Ekpo said...

BECAUSE HER STORY IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT WAS A RAPE; THE MAN DIDNT FORCED HER INTO THE BATHROOM, SHE STRIPPED AND JOIN THE GUY IN THE BATH, WHO WILL SEE THE NAKEDNESS OF WOMAN AND BE AROUSED, LET HER LOOK FOR A MORE CONVINCING STORY TO TELL PLEASE.

Are you an idiot or what? Have you heard about impersonation before? It's a crime and that's what you're doing which makes you a criminal. Quit kissing LindasA** by using her name. Go make a name for your self. Too many hungry people around though..

IG didn't remove it because it doesn't follow the community's guidelines but because they didn't buy the story!
