Former World No. 1 pistol shooter and Olympian Heena Sidhu’s Instagram account has been restricted by the site following her post for a promotional video on SUV.
Last month Sidhu had uploaded a ‘paid partnership’ promotional video for an automobile brand on her Instagram account talking about variant of a compact SUV, prior to driving the car to the shooting range and firing from her pistol at the target.
Few days prior to that Sidhu found that restrictions had been placed on her Instagram account. She was derailed from adding captions to subsequent posts, personal or promotional.
Sidhu then took to Twitter to draw the attention of Instagram by posting, “Hey @instagram I am a shooter, an athlete of a sport played in hundreds of countries and at the #olympics. Can you please stop blocking my account every time your bots spot a #Pistol in my posts. I thought my account got white listed the last time… But it has happened again!”
