She and her followers are NOT happy!
On top of this incident and the hate she receives, Charlie also revealed that this isn’t the first time Instagram has taken down a picture of her son. “Both times were when he didn’t have his prosthetic eye in,“ she said. “It’s specifically those pictures Instagram or someone is finding offensive. He has had a lot of surgery to create those sockets so I’m proud to show it off.”
She criticized Instagram, saying, “It’s a public forum and they should be supporting people who deserve their support and encouraging.”
“Shame on you!”
There’s no question why this deletion would be offensive to Charlie, who is dedicated to becoming an “advocate” for others like her and her son. She said, “I am trying to become an advocate for children like Harry and families like us and hope Instagram would support us in a positive way, not make life difficult — because we have enough already.” She has since updated the picture that was deleted with the caption, “Note to the person who reported the last image of my son like this. It’s his FACE. If you’re offended then scroll past. Shame on you!”
