Instagram is putting their foot down again on what appears to be a re-launch of “Eggplant Friday.”

Earlier this month, The Game posted two controversial photos on the social media website of an outline of his southern region; images that some people were pleased to see, but that others were mortified by.

But now, it seems as though the folks behind the social media network are fearful that this is just the start of yet another risqué and inappropriate movement. So now what is the best thing to do? Shut it down.

“So word on the street is Instagram is threatening to ban my account if I don’t take them meat print picture down,” Game said in a video on Tuesday night.

He captioned the clip:

“So if my account mysteriously disappear, IG hatin on a player & I’ll be on snap chat for the duration: ‘blackb0yfly’ & if they do delete it…. All my women fans, post it in the name of my Instagram memory.”

The rapper also spoke out about the “double standard,” telling TMZ that he shouldn’t be set apart if Kim Kardashian gets to flaunt her butt and boobs on the Gram. ie. Paper magazine spread.

By the way, Game’s efforts to break the internet appears to have inspired celebrities like Omarion and Usher, who both recently posted their parts behind their boxers on IG.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
