NEW YORK - JANUARY 23: Lil Boosie appears onstage during a taping of MTV's Sucker Free at MTV studios in Times Square on January 23, 2007 in New York City.

Boosie is willing to pay a lot of money to get his Instagram back. The rapper has offered $100,000 to reinstate his Instagram page (@OfficialBoosie ) that was recently deactivated. Over the weekend, Boosie took to Twitter and made the six-figure offer to Instagram and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “@zuck I got a 100k for my OfficialBoosieig page BACK,” he tweeted.

Back in August, Boosie begged the CEO to reinstate his account, which had over 9 million followers before it was suspended. “They just took my Instagram. Mark Zuckinberger, I need to talk to you,” he said, incorrectly pronouncing Zuckerberg’s name. “Bosses need to talk to bosses. I don’t know what I did, but I need my Instagram back.”

Boosie also said that he and fellow rappers aren’t earning “any show money” due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that they rely on social media for income. “This is how I feed my family. Mark, do not do this to 2020. Do not take Boosie off Instagram!” the rapper added.

Instagram hasn’t addressed Boosie’s page’s deactivation. However, the Louisiana native likely violated the social media platform’s guidelines by sharing NSFW adult content, which he also posts via OnlyFans. The rapper is also known for hosting Instagram Live sessions with half-naked women. Since Boosie’s ban, he’s been using Twitter to communicate with fans.
