Some of you may have wondered why the Daily Mix Report has not been posting on Instagram lately?
Well, there is a reason for that and it’s bad.
Towards the end of April, I received an email on firstname.lastname@example.org (hit us up with tips and suggestions!) saying one of our posts was blocked. We have had this happen before. It usually involves copyright infringement on videos or music despite crediting most of / if not all of our videos. Instagram removes the post or we remove it ourselves. We’re not trying to profit off of these posts. We do it to give our audience a good laugh. Pretty harmless in my opinion. It’s like a slap on the wrist. Nothing major usually happens because we’re not trying to fight the complaining parties. We just want to post videos of Yodel kid singing at Coachella.
However, this email was different. Full disclosure, I only check emails about once a week on our account. I caught wind of this email a few days ago. For not seeing the email earlier, hand up, that’s on me.
The other day, when I went to check our account, Instagram said I could not sign in. Granted, I was at a lacrosse game at the time so I had to focus on the game, not the problems on my phone. I thought nothing of it for the remainder of the day. Then, Wednesday morning rolls around and I want to post on our account. I get an instant message saying our account has been removed once I try to access the account. Ruh oh Shaggy. To quote Stephen A Smith…
I saw what we were removed for and it was over music from a certain record company that I will not name just in case I one day receive a record deal. That being said, I had to think what post contained music that could’ve been flagged since I couldn’t see the post anymore. I checked the date and did a quick Google search for something new that came out that day. Let’s just say it rhymed with loopidy droop. Who posted that song to our account?
Oh, that’s right. It was this guy.
This guy right here. Mr. I only post on the Instagram once every so often, LordTreeSap. Michael thinks he’s now a big shot since he posted one blog about Little Tay for his work. Meanwhile, he’s the “broke ass hater.”
So that’s why our account has been suspended. I’ve been emailing Instagram politely to try and win it back. If I can’t get it back within a week, we’ll start a new account and let everyone know. Until then, I’m not saying call out @lordtreesap on Twitter for doing this, but call him out for doing this.
P.S. I don’t have 100% proof that it was LTS because I can’t see the post anymore. But the odds that it was him are 1-5. Please let it be known that the word “allegedly” should be put in front of every accusation. Thank you.
