Zuckerberg’s Instagram Warns Against Tagging Tucker Carlson in ‘Happy Birthday’ Post

“This account has repeatedly posted false information that was reviewed by independent fact checkers or went against our Community Guidelines,” Instagram says in warning.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Instagram warned against tagging former Fox News host Tucker Carlson in a “Happy Birthday” post on Thursday, claiming the top journalist has been known to violate “Community Guidelines.”

A post wishing Carlson a “happy birthday” was met with a warning from Instagram urging users to reconsider tagging the former Fox News host in a Story.

“This account has repeatedly posted false information that was reviewed by independent fact checkers or went against our Community Guidelines. Do you want to mention this account?” the warning from Instagram read, before giving users the option to either “cancel” or “mention anyway.”

Instagram warning against Tucker Carlson

Carlson, one of the top journalists in the country who started his media company Tucker Carlson Network after leaving Fox News, celebrated his 55th birthday Thursday.

Notably, Meta, Instagram and Facebook’s parent company, in February revealed a strategy aiming to diminish the circulation of political content on its apps.

It’s unclear exactly what Community Guidelines Carlson has violated, but given his criticism of the Ukraine war, abortion, transgenderism and the Biden administration, it’s reasonable to assume Instagram “fact checkers” considered any one of those criticisms to be a “violation.”

That is, except facilitating pedophile trafficking networks on the platform.
