The Game Calls Out Instagram For Policing Double Standard
Never one to under-share or limit his number of feuds, The Game is at odds with Instagram over some racy selfies the rapper posted recently. While shirtless photos are nothing new to the bulked-up Game, he recently posted photos posing in nothing but boxer briefs, the outline of his unit clearly visible. Yesterday it was reported that Instagram will require Game to remove the pictures, although they are currently still up on Game's page.
Today, the rapper responded to the social platform's insistence, saying, on Instagram no less, "Word on the street is, Instagram is threatening to ban my account if I don’t pull the meat print picture down. And they wanna know how I feel about" before pointing at his side-eyed mug. TMZ reached out to Game, who says the fuss confuses him since the photos have been up for several weeks and Kim Kardashian doesn't receive similar response to her numerous revealing photos.
This may be a game of chicken that results in Game's profile suddenly disappearing. Either way, it's a funny choice of words for Game, who either knowingly or not, is quoting his longtime mentor Dr. Dre who famously rapped, "They say rap's changed, they wanna know how I feel about it."
