Instagram blog “The Industry On Blast” was deleted without warning over the weekend. The IG gossip blogger ran afoul of Hollywood Power magnate Sean Combs by insinuating that his firstborn son Justin Combs was a homosexual.
Combs apparently complained to the powers that be at Instagram.com, who swiftly deleted the gossip page.
Stunned IOB fans awoke Monday to find their favorite gossip IG page was gone. They slowly migrated over to @theindustryonblast’s backup page: @theindustryonblast2.
All Instagram gossip bloggers live in fear of being deleted from Instagram.com for spreading malicious gossip. So they maintain multiple backup pages just in case.
Instagram.com was purchased by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion in 2014.
Rumor has it that the Simmons sisters, Angela and Vanessa, regularly updates the Industry On Blast IG account. But Vanessa took to Instagram to vigorously deny the rumors after Combs allegedly reached out to her.
Another Instagram blogger, Fameolous, feuded with IOB over who broke the Justin Combs tea first. Fameolous argued that he was the first to spill the tea about Justin.
But by Monday, Fameoulous had scrubbed his Instagram page of any mention of young master Combs being a homosexual.
Here are the offending posts that got IOB shut down.
