Hillary Clinton is everywhere lately and it seems one artist took it one step farther. The artist, based in Melbourne, Australia, discovered his Instagram page had been deleted after posting a snapshot of his latest creation: a racy Hillary Clinton mural.
In real life, this mural is about a story and a half tall and is plastered on the side of an Australian business. Lushsux, the creator, posted the photo to his Instagram page on Thursday and soon found his page deleted.
With more than 100,000 followers, Lushsux is claiming that Instagram deleted his page as a political move.
“The timing is a little bit suspicious considering the DNC is on at the moment,” he told 9News. “Facebook is well-known to be a supporter of the Democratic Party. I don’t know, it could be conspiracy but it’s a bit strange.”
This isn’t the first political-charged artwork that Lushsux has created. In fact, he has built a successful career on humorous political prints.
Lushux further explained that he found it a bit strange that his account wasn’t shut down after he created a satirical image of Clinton’s rival, Donald Trump.
“It’s fine to go on and do a mural on Trump, but when I go and do one on Hillary Clinton, my account is gone,” explains Lushux. “When it comes to taking the p*ss out of conservatives, it doesn’t matter on these social media sites,” he told 3AW. “The bias is clear.”
The artist has created a second account and continues to tell Instagram to reactivate his original account. However, it seems Lushux can’t catch a break. The city council of the town in which he has the Clinton mural is working to get it removed as we speak.
