Instagram terminates the verified account of Hushpuppi
Ramon Abbas, better known by his online handle Hushpuppi, has had his verified Instagram account banned.
Hushpuppi is currently facing charges in the US of fraud-related offenses.
Recall that a joint team from the Dubai Police and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation detained Hushpuppi in June 2020 in Dubai for alleged online fraud.
Later on, Hushpuppi was extradited to the US, where he was accused of numerous offenses including hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.
Hushpuppi was detained and put on trial, but Instagram still permitted him to post videos and pictures as long as he did not represent any harmful entities or people.
The social networking site, however, appears to have reconsidered its choice to keep Hushpuppi's account active.
