Pastor Joey Vazquez

Account Disabled

Instagram permanently disables Maryland pastor's account for no apparent reason: Deep Waters Tabernacle senior pastor Joey Vazquez had his account on Instagram permanently disabled for no apparent reason. The pastor informed MRC Free Speech America that he hadn't received any prior notices from the platform that his account stood in violation of any of its rules. He further stated that he primarily used his account to monitor his church's Instagram account. According to a snapshot he provided when he attempted to log in, Instagram gave a vague statement: "Your account has been permanently disabled because it didn't follow our Community Guidelines. This decision can't be reversed either because we've already reviewed it, or because 30 days have passed since your account was disabled." Pastor Joey said that he had no idea what "Community Guidelines" his account violated.
