Ramon Abbas, better known by his online handle Hushpuppi, has had his verified Instagram account banned.
Recall that a joint team from the Dubai Police and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, detained Hushpuppi in June 2020 in Dubai for alleged online fraud. He now faces charges in the US.
Other charges he is facing include 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.
