For quite a bit of time, Instagram has been refusing to take down content posted by users that violate the Instagram Community Guidelines, as well as removing content that had no reason to be. If you look into the case, they are neglecting their guidelines. By refusing to abide by their own policy, they are performing policy negligence, which is a federal offense.

Since Instagram neglected to abide by their Community Guidelines, therefore denying us the rights we hold under the Constitution, is time we take action. Again, this issue is a violation of our Constitutional rights, but is being blatantly ignored. By signing this petition, you are helping to spread social awareness of the problem so we can open a case on this. Though it may sound like a ridiculous solution, the fact of the matter is that "Neglecting your organization’s policies is like letting your insurance coverage lapse...even a fairly small lawsuit can significantly harm your organization", and if any Constitutional right is denied to us, we have the right to a speedy trial.

I have dug up exactly what it would take for us to win against them in court. We hold nearly every single requirement necessary to win. Source: https://www.powerdms.com/blog/cost-of-not-following

I believe it is also very necessary that the guidelines get updated. Currently, Instagram's guidelines state that they do not allow "hate speech (a direct attack on people based on...[their] race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability)... contents that targets private individuals to degrade or shamed them… encourage[ing] violence or attack [on] anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases.

This means their current guidelines only protect specific individuals who are being attacked, but not communities as a whole. For example, an account dedicated to degrading ME BECAUSE I am a Chinese person would violate the guidelines, however, an account degrading China and/or Chinese people as a whole could not, since the guidelines only protect private individuals.

SIGN THE PETITION, and follow our Instagram @kyw.insta for evidence and updates. Don't let this company silence you and take away your rights.
