Insta-nope

Occasionally I promote a post. Instagram rejected my latest promotion. They claim it “exploits crisis or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes.”

It’s a slideshow I made of the paintings I’ve been working on since social distancing began. I threw in a few personal behind the scenes shots and commentary. What am I missing? I’m an oil painter sharing a collection of work I’ve been busy with while confined. I’m not even selling anything! Here’s the post:

Then, as if to rub salt in the wound, the following sponsored post served right after my rejection notice:

exploitation
Instagram approved this because it does not exploit crisis or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes. Interesting.
