There has been al huge amount of talk on Instagram with regards with shadowbanning of popular pole dancing hashtags, so much so that there is now a petition that is gaining traction in the world of pole dance and pole fitness to stop Instagram from blocking these hashtags without explanation apart from to say that “content that may not meet Instagram’s community guidelines.”

You can check out and sign the petition on Change.Org.

Whilst this petition has been running there has been no communication directly from Instagram to the community however there has been an apology that has surfaced via CTV News in California not that this has actually stopping Instagram from continuing to block the affected hashtags.

We have today sent an email to Instagrams Press Office to ask them for official comment and will let you all know if anything comes back.
