The 23-year-old rapper has gone viral on a number of social media platforms, thanks in part to her songs and resulting music videos. TikTok and Twitter, in particular, can’t stop sharing her collab with Nicki Minaj. 

Given her popularity on other platforms, naturally, she’s become pretty popular on Instagram as well, racking up close to 7 million followers with less than 100 posts. However, one of her posts has been struck down by the platform because she used her actual name. Yes, seriously.

Ice Spice Instagram post deleted as a result of her own name

That’s right, the rapper revealed on April 17 that one of her posts had been taken down for violating Instagram’s guidelines on “violence or dangerous organizations.”

It was just a simple picture of her from the ‘Princess Diana’ music video, however, her own name – Isis – caused the platform to remove the post. “Can’t type my name ODE,” she said in a story showing off the removal. 

While it is a popular name, it does have connections to an extremist group that uses it as an acronym, so it’s very likely the post has been auto-flagged by Instagram or been spam reported by trolls.
