50 Cent Censored by Instagram for Posting Explicit Leaked Image of Singer Teairra Mari
Former Roc-A-Fella Records singer Teairra Mari made headlines earlier today (May 9) when explicit photos of her were posted onto her own Instagram account, which she claims was done by an ex-lover. In the hours since this incident, some social media users have made light of the incident, one being none other than 50 Cent.
Taking an image from the leak, which included video and explicit photographs, 50, who will hit the road for his Get Rich Or Die Tryin' 15th anniversary tour this fall, poked fun at the whole situation. Now, it appears that Instagram has taken down the post, and 50 Cent quickly spoke out about the matter.
"I’m leaving IG, I’m going back to Twitter," 50 wrote in the caption for a post that includes an image of him hoisting a wine glass for a toast. "They take shit down off my page with out notifying me. #censorthesenuts"
In the hours following the initial leaking of the sex tape and nude photos, Mari, who has starred as a part of VH1's Love & Hip-Hop, used her Instagram account to issue a statement on the matter. In the post, she spotlights the fact that this particular leaking could constitute an act of revenge porn, which is, of course, illegal. It looks like she's preparing to sue.
"Recently, my social media was compromised by someone I who I felt was deserving of my love and trust," Mari wrote in the post. "That person proved to be untrustworthy and posted footage of what in the moment was private and sacred. Moving forward, I recognize the need to be more cautious and discerning. My hope is for women to remain strong and dignified when they find themselves having to address hateful and juvenile acts by former lovers who find it difficult to act in an adult manner. Revenge Porn is a crime in California and I will be in pursuit of justice."
