Make Instagram allow users to filter out weight loss ads

Katie Budenberg started this petition to Instagram

It's no secret that the aim of a weight-loss ad is to make you feel inadequate in your body so that you are persuaded to pay the company large amounts of money to help you lose weight. To some, these ads may be harmless and they can scroll on but for some these ads are triggering and dangerous. 

This is why we are asking that Instagram adds the option to not see weight-loss ads; this setting already exists for other potentially triggering topics, such as alcohol and parenting, and should be extended to weight-loss.

This setting would make Instagram a safer, and therefore a more inclusive, place for those with a history of disordered eating and/or body image issues.
