President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is getting mocked online for accusing Instagram of suppressing his content. He claims that when he posts on Twitter and Instagram, he’s only getting one-third of the views that he normally gets.
Don Jr. has not provided any evidence for this supposed content suppression or for the fact that “companies are against him.” There are a number of reasons someone might see the view count on their content decline (and none of them are nefarious).
“Twitter has been throttling my reach and I’m getting 1/3 the amount of RTs I would normally get,” he said in a tweet, “Instagram is doing the same & worse for the last few days. I guess they don’t want the truth about the Biden crime family out there and they will cover for them at all costs.”
Don Jr. said in an Instagram video, “I’m just watching my algorithms get crushed. I guess I did something to piss off the Instagram gods, so hopefully, you’re seeing this stuff anyway.”
Then people started to make fun of him and posted it on social media. Here are some of our favorites:
