Hi guys, I really need your help. This instagram user has been stealing and reposting artwork without permission. I’ve tried contacting them - before I’d ever been aware of their account they had blocked me, presumably because they saw I post my own art on my instagram and knew I wouldn’t want others doing it. So I set up another account today, messaged them and they deleted my comment without responding and temporarily made their account private.
A friend of mine messaged them about her art, and they basically said “You’re posting it online, this means anyone can do anything they want with it.” They then blocked her and posted her picture yet again in screenshot format, tagging her in a comment so that she’d see it but be unable to respond.
They know what they’re doing is wrong, and without your help they’re going to continue doing it. What’s worse is that there are people defending the thief when I speak up.
If you have an instagram account, can you leave a comment or even better, report them? Their copyright report system is so complicated so I understand if you don’t want to navigate all those pages, but even reporting as a scam/spam is as simple as a click and it’ll hopefully draw instagram’s attention to the matter.
I’d be so grateful for a signal boost, guys. I really appreciate you even reading this. It’s so disheartening as an artist to just watch this happen.
Here’s an excellent guide on how to report stolen art on instagram - thank you for the heads up bifca!

NEW YORK, 1960s. The civil rights movement reaches its crest. Mufasa, a prominent activist leader in the city, clashes against his younger brother Scar, himself a prominent leader of the mafia underground. Politics against politics, brother against brother; Mufasa dies, Scar reigns. A new law governs New York in the 70s: blood and bribery.Idris Elba as Mufasa, Michael K. Williams as Scar, Naomie Harris as Sarabi, Jaden Smith as Young Simba, Amandla Stenberg as Young Nala (not giffed), Taraji P. Henson as Timon, Mo’Nique as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Older Simba, Kerry Washington as Older Nala, John Boyega as Kovu, Zoe Kravitz as Kiara.
i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”
Or we could just stop stereotyping people.
I know how much it feels like what happens here is gonna dictate the path of the rest of your life, but let me be clear. If you don’t get into Harvard or Yale, or even if you do get into those schools, your numbers and your test scores and your statistics; they’re not as important your growth as a human being, your relationships with other people, the risks you’re willing to take. If you’re learning, you’re growing, you’re getting smarter, you’re gonna do better in life even if you’re numbers aren’t reflecting it. And if you’re grades are great then, fantastic, you keep that up but please make sure that you are becoming great as a person as well. They don’t grade you, on your SATs or at Oxford, on how you treat other people, on how your react to real-life conflict or stress, on how you handle success or failure, and often that’s gonna go a long way in what you accomplish in this world.
just when you think society is okay, another ignorant and idiotic famous girl posts an instagram picture of her in a Native American headdress, while hundreds of other girls wear bindis and traditional Indian nose rings to Coachella. And their uneducated tween followers defend them.
