Chief Keef may have taken his Instagram game too far. The teenage rapper posted a photo of himself receiving sexual favors over the weekend on his Instagram account. Shortly thereafter, his account was shut down from what seems to be a repercussion of his sex photo. “F— instagram dey took my sh– again #300” he tweeted earlier today. Fans visiting his Instagram profile see a “Page Not Found” error.
According to Instagram’s Terms, no nude, partially nude or sexually suggestive photos are allowed so Keef’s flick would have violated the application’s rules.
Chief Keef has has many issues in his young career as it pertains to social media. Earlier this month, he claimed his Twitter account was hacked. The issue originally began as 18-year-old rapper Lil Jojo, real name Joseph Coleman, and Chief Keef-associate Lil Reese traded harsh words and threats. Jojo, who recently released a song called “3hunna K” that ripped on Keef, Reese and their 300 Squad, was gunned down in Chicago’s South Side Englewood neighborhood.
Local police are investigating possible links between Keef’s camp and the murder but no information as to their progress has been made public as of yet. In the murder’s aftermath, Keef appeared to take to his Twitter account to mock Jojo. “It’s sad cus… Jojo wanted to be just like us #LMAO,” he wrote.
The backlash was instant and Keef claimed that he had never made the controversial tweet, blaming the words on a hacker. “My Twitter has been hacked,” he wrote. “I think I’m making a new one dumb hating ass people,” he said.
Keef’s manager, Rovan Manuel, told the Chicago Sun-Times that it took him awhile to catch onto the controversy that was spewing on Twitter, adding that he didn’t think the tweets meant “anything personally.” “A lot of the stuff Keef does, that’s just cause he’s a kid,” Manuel said. “People forget that he’s a kid, a teenager … and kids make mistakes. He makes mistakes the hard way.”
