Street Artist Has Instagram Account Deleted Over Provocative Hillary Mural, But Not For His Provocative Trump Mural
Controversial Melbourne street artist, Lushsux, has been removed from Instagram following a provocative mural of Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
Lushsux reportedly awoke this morning to find his account had been wiped from the popular social media site.
He had more than 100,000 Instagram followers and has been painting for around 16 years.
The local artist told 9NEWS he suspected “bias” because of the “Hillary Clinton mural”, and put it down to political motive as the root cause of his account being deleted without warning.
“The timing is a little bit suspicious considering the DNC is on at the moment. Facebook is well-known to be a supporter of the Democratic party. I don’t know, it could be conspiracy but it’s a bit strange,” he said.
“It’s fine to go on and do a mural on Trump, but when I go and do one on Hillary Clinton, my account is gone.”
