Instagram extends ban on self-harm cartoons and drawings

Oct 29, 2019 14:54 IST

Social media platform, Instagram has decided to extend its ban on images of self-harm to cover drawings and cartoons. After teenager Molly Russell killed herself in 2017, Instagram banned graphic images of self-harm this February following an appeal by the 14-year old's father. After she died her family found graphic posts about suicide and self-harm on her Instagram account. The ban now applies to all kinds of 'unrealistic yet explicit depictions of suicide'.
