Fans who have attended Janet Jackson's Unbreakable tour, I have! and have posted snippets of her concert to their Instagram accounts have found their videos deleted or their accounts entirely deactivated. Fans claim they have received emails from Instagram saying A third party reported that the content violates their copyright. A representative for Instagram addressed the issue, asserting that the removals were not deliberate. Instead, they were caused by a system bug which Instagram had fixed and was in the process of restoring the impacted accounts. Mmhmm. Ms. Jackson took to her Twitter page to also address the issue she Tweeted, my team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects. It was never their intention acting on my behalf to have social media accounts removed. Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand. Janet later continued to say that she's working with her team to change their approach. And allow fans to engage socially with her in their videos from concerts. So- [CROSSTALK] That was a long tweet. I know. It's a lot. [LAUGH] [CROSSTALK] [LAUGH] But apparently if you're Janet you can get in the disrotation. You know what I heard from that? I am married to a prince and you will read my legal statement. [LAUGH] On the Twitter. So what do you all think, slayed or shade? Slayed. Slay, slay, shade Shade. [UNKNOWN] let you start. Slayed? I mean there is no power like the Jackson family power. I think that is the ultimate flood. Jackson power don't stop. Yeah absolutely. I mean, anytime somebody goes to a concert, what's the first thing that happens? Your whole Instagram feed is taking over. Right. By pictures and videos of concerts. But to have that power is like, you know All this stuff is getting old now. [LAUGH] I'm like, boom Shut down the Internet. I'm like, amen Janet. Flex that muscle. Flex that Jackson family muscle. I'm so mad at you. Sharia, what did you say? As a Jackson, I said, and this shade is not for Janet. This is actually for her team, because we would love to see what's going on at a concert. In 15 seconds on [UNKNOWN] is not a full Full video. I understand the YouTube, but people want to get a taste, and if you are going it's not like, oh I watched it on Instagram I'm not going to go. So it's exciting for the fans that aren't able to come, but also for people who might be going, and are like I'm going in Paris with Up in the Air. I can't wait to see Janet, but it's exciting to see. So it is a little bit shade. In this day and age people want a little bit. Whet the appetite, Ms. Jackson. I thought it was a good thing to have everybody talking about you. Yeah it's good buzz. Avella you get the final word on this one. I say. Slayed. I have caught myself so caught up in a concert of event recording it for the Insta that I'm not there present, enjoying it. And if you want to steal my girl Janet's intellectual property then your Instagram will get snatched. I think that is played all day. Poke the picture of me I don't like, ****! [LAUGH]
