Instagram removes post of the woman who live-blogged her rape

Instagram has removed a post of an Cape Town-based American woman who live-blogged her own rape ordeal on the social media platform. Amber Amour who was in South Africa to promote her “Stop Rape, Educate” campaign shared on her Instagram account that she was raped in Cape Town while sharing a shower with a friend.
One of the photos the 27-year-old posted was taken immediately after she was raped.
Instagram removed it two days ago saying: "Amber we removed your post because it doesn’t follow our community guidelines."

Responding to the ban, Amour took to her Instagram page saying that she will not be cowed into silence.
"You deleted the caption documenting the rape from my page but guess what, that shit has gone viral. It’s all over the internet so whoever was behind the deleting of that honestly did nothing.
"Survivors of rape are called liars and frauds every day! I find it absolutely appalling that the caption was deleted. I will not be silenced. I will keep speaking my truth.”
She said initially only the caption had been deleted, but after she reposted it, the entire post was deleted. See her full post below:
"Instagram deleted the caption describing the rape AGAIN after I reposted it yesterday. This is evidence of a crime and Instagram obviously and openly supports rapists and rape culture by silencing survivors of sexual assault who speak up on social media. There are dozens of rape fetish pages, child porn pages, and pages that depict the enslavement of women but lo & behold a woman speaks up against these things and they silence her. I will not be silenced. This is only the beginning and I don't need @instagram to start a revolution because the revolution has already begun!"
