Call of Duty pro and content creator Doug “Censor” Martin has revealed the backstory behind the sudden disappearance of his Instagram account, which mysteriously went offline on January 1.

The noted YouTuber, streamer, and New York Subliners substitute announced that his account had been deleted via Twitter on January 3, appearing to be completely perplexed as to why it had “randomly” gone offline.

While he had the full use of his other social media outlets, no word was given as to the reason for his Instagram’s deletion until the next day.

On January 4, Censor uploaded a video explaining the scenario, claiming that he never received an email or notification from the platform concerning the matter.

However, it doesn’t look like Censor broke the site’s Terms of Service: instead, it seems that his account went offline due to changing his account name to @Censor, after parting ways with esports giant FaZe Clan in October 2018.

Censor, YouTubeCensor parted ways with esports and entertainment organization FaZe Clan in October 2018, after joining the group in 2014.

“I thought it was the weirdest thing,” he explained. “I changed my name on Instagram to @Censor. The OG @Censor. It took me five years. I finally got the name.”

According to the CoD pro, Instagram effectively “merged” his old account with his new one, and when the process was complete, deleted his account altogether — but he’s hopeful that the page will return on Monday, January 6.

“They take the account ‘@Censor,’ which is the account that I had, and they download all of my followers onto the account, and then they merge that account with my new account,” he continued. “…I’m assuming that the account got processed, and because of that, it got deleted.”

The star went on to ask for help from other verified account holders on the platform, as he claimed the process might be limited to verified personalities.

For now, fans will have to wait for his regular workout videos — but the good news is that his account will hopefully be up and running very soon (with the original name, at that).

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
