Amid Boosie’s ongoing troubles with Instagram, the Baton Rouge MC has announced that he intends to take legal actions against the social platform. On Thursday (September 17), Boosie took to Twitter where he shared that he intends to sue the popular platform for racial discrimination after he ran into more trouble with his new IG page.

  1. “I STARTED A NEW IG @boosienewig n they stopped my live soon as [The Shade Room] posted it,” he alleged. “HAVENT POSTED NOTHIN R WENT LIVE this is discrimination/racial etc. IM SUEING CALLING DREW NOW.”

    This announcement comes after Boosie’s original Instagram account was officially deactivated back in August for repeatedly violating the social media company’s user policies. Boosie hit a roadblock when his Instagram account was temporarily suspended over explicit content and then he was eventually banned from the platform entirely. He has been on a crusade to get his page reinstated ever since 

    Boosie even offered Mark Zuckerburg $100,000 to get his original page back to no avail. In the meantime, his temporary replacement (@boosienewig) has already amassed more than 368,000 followers.
