Instagram placed a sensitive content filter over a video of a Royal Canadian Air Force plane taking off at an airshow: An Instagram account that posts videos of planes posted a video of a "2022 RCAF CF-18 Hornet Demo Team torch[ing] the runway with authority on takeoff for the dirty roll at London (Canada) International Airport (CYXU), on September 9, during the 2022 edition of Airshow London SkyDrive's 'Hour of Power' twilight display." Instagram placed a "Sensitive Content" warning over the video that reads "This video may contain graphic or violent content." In its explanation of the video, Instagram noted that "This post doesn’t go against our Community Standards, but may contain images that some people might find upsetting." Users must then click a link to continue to view the video. Instagram has controls for sensitive content, however these controls do not allow users to remove interstitials over posts altogether, only how many of these types of posts they see. According to Facebook, Instagram's sister-company, users fail to click through similar interstitials 95% of the time.
