‘Instagram has targeted my account!’ The World’s Hottest Grandma Gina Stewart, 48, claims she’s been unfairly ‘shadow-banned’ by the social media giant for her ‘artistic’ nude photos
The World’s Hottest Grandma has amassed more than 140,000 fans on Instagram thanks to her raunchy photos.
But now Gina Stewart claims that she’s been ‘shadow-banned’ by the social media giant.
The ban is believed to be the result of a change in Instagram’s community guidelines in order to crack down on ‘inappropriate’ and ‘sexually suggestive’ content.
‘It’s a form of censorship!’ The World’s Hottest Grandma Gina Stewart, 48, claims to have been shadow-banned by Instagram
Instead of permanently removing somebody from a website, some social media users believe a shadow-ban still allows them to post freely, but makes their content and profile harder to find.
It’s believed that a shadow-banned account on Instagram won’t appear in any searches unless the entire username is typed in, nor will the account appear in any hashtag searches.
Instagram has in the past denied the existence of shadow-bans.

Believing that she is the victim of a shadow-ban, Gina took to Instagram to share a fiery post defending herself against the unjust censorship.
‘This is something that not many people know about but it’s a form of censorship,’ she wrote.
‘Instagram has targeted my account, my account has followed the guidelines and the Instagram rules,’ she continued.
‘My account is tasteful and artistic, glamorous and reflects that older woman can be beautiful. Life is not over once you turn 40.’

The mother-of-four then pointed out that she’s generated traffic for the social media site thanks to her celebrity profile in the mainstream media, on top of raising money and awareness for charitable causes.
‘I have generated a lot of traffic for Instagram over the past year throughout world press. I have raised money for cancer research, raised thousands and helped Jared Allen’s Home For Wounded Warriors.’
She continued: ‘I have also personally raised money for my sick friend who suffered a stroke and couldn’t cover the bills or look after her young teenage boys.’

Gina entered the modelling early last year by competing in a competition for Maxim magazine in a bid to win a cash prize to help her best friend.
‘I’m just hoping to raise awareness for stroke victims,’ she told Daily Mail Australia at the time.
Shadow-banning has been a hot topic in the media since last year, when U.S. President Donald Trump claimed that Twitter was shadow-banning prominent Republicans.
