On Thursday, Boosie took to Twitter where he made his call to action.
“INSTAGRAM IS RACIST (FACTS) #BLACK BILLIONAIRES LETS START OUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA N LET ME RUN IT,” he wrote. “#takeawaytheypower THEY MAKE THEY MONEY OFF US WITH R WITHOUT YALL IM GO FIND AWAY.”
He paired this tweet with an Instagram Live session where he expounded on the idea.
“What all y’all need to do is, y’all Black billionaires, start y’all own Instagram,” he said with a smile. “And give me part of the ownership. Let me be the face of it. I’mma run that motherfucker.” One important caveat? It’s “uncensored.”
Boosie has had his Instagram taken down and disabled on several occasions. Most recently, his page was deleted after he posted behind the scenes footage of him slapping a man for his single “Period” with DaBaby.
Despite Boosie requesting a willing participant days before the scene and paying the man more than $500 to be slapped, the post was still flagged and his page temporarily deactivated. This prompted him to take to Twitter where he made it clear that Instagram and Facebook are racist platforms.
