Instagram Reinstates Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Claims Ban on Campaign Account Was a Mistake


Master of the Universe Big Tech behemoth Meta announced on Sunday that the personal Instagram account for Robert F. Kennedy Jr has been reinstated after being blocked from the social media platform in 2021 for "repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines," according to Meta.

The announcement of lifting the suspension comes just days after Kennedy reported that Instagram had blocked his team from setting up a presidential campaign account on the platform, which seemingly contradicts the company policy of allowing users to engage with politicians.

"As he is now an active candidate for president of the United States, we have restored access to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s Instagram account," Meta spokesman Andy Stone said in a statement provided to the Washington Post.

The Meta spokesman went on to claim that blocking Kennedy's campaign from setting up its own account had been an error, saying: "We quickly fixed the issue that prevented the campaign Instagram account from being created."
