Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram Again

By Tom Breihan / November 14, 2013

Well, that was fast. In September, Instagram removed the account that belonged to Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, since Coyne kept violating the site’s rules by posting images of naked people and such. (Coyne’s response, when our own Chris DeVille asked him about it: “I am OK with that. I understand Instagram has its rules, and I didn’t ever read them, but I knew that they had taken down things that I’d posted before. I forget, because I’m bouncing sometimes in between Twitter and Instagram, I forget.”) Fans petitioned Instagram to bring back his account, to no avail, and Coyne started another account. And now, Coyne has been kicked off of Instagram again, for the exact same reasons. He already has a new account, and he writes that he’ll “try to play by the rules,” but we’ll see.
