Wayne Coyne was kicked out Instagram? No way, this is all he does all day, posting pictures on Instagram and tweeting them. His pictures are always,… psychedelic, all in the yellow-pink-blue zone, with surrealist cartoonish art, band pictures, dead animals and naked women, lots of them. But this Saturday, The Flaming Lips frontman’s account was closed down as he announced it on Twitter: ‘Been kicked off Instgrammmm !! Dang!!’ His tweet was accompanied by this picture of a guy throwing patches of red and blue paint on the vagina of a leg-apart green alien woman. It didn’t sit well with the social media policy which prohibits ‘sexually suggestive photos’. It’s super ridiculous looking at the picture above… they should rather look at Rihanna’s sexually super-charged Instagrams and her dirty mind (her words)… I mean he is far from being the only one!
Of course, Wayne Coyne did register a new account as soon as his old one had vanished, and he continues to post whatever he wants. But in the meantime, fans are furious because they have lost their dear pictures and Wayne has lost his thousands of fans. So they have written a petition to restore Wayne account!
Even celebrities have already signed, such as Jack Ingalls, frontman of Spaceface and keyboardist/ guitarist for the Lips on tour, who wrote:
‘Aside from maybe posting occasional suggestive pictures, Wayne uses this account to help out other struggling artists and musicians by keeping everyone updated on who he’s working with etc. All of his posts come only from a place of love and it makes no sense that you can’t just remove the one offensive photo, especially if you’ve given other artists said privilege. To remove his whole account seems like a move to inhibit a community of artists, rather than slap a man on the wrist..’
Of course, his best friend Moby was right away on the case with Twitter:
‘sign the petition to bring back wayne’s images…
The Internet is a free speech place right? Things like these should not happen and I wonder why these pictures were more offensive than anything you see around… So sign the petition and let’s restore psychedelia and all these alien vaginas! … Or may be it’s just another of Wayne’s clever publicity-tricks, everyone remembers about the Erykah Badu scandal, right?
