Instagram takes heat for removing pro-Soleimani content

"“The sanctions law doesn’t prohibit and couldn’t prohibit people from posting things in favor of or against a particular sanctioned person or entity,” Jennifer Granick, a surveillance and cybersecurity counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union, told The Hill.

Granick said the controversy over Instagram raised troubling First Amendment concerns that would not go away quickly.

“The line between supporting and encouraging actions and seeking to help is nonexistent or fuzzy at best,” Granick said about censoring online content."
