Janet Jackson has addressed reports of her management team’s strict takedown requests, some of which were said to have resulted in fans’ Instagram accounts having uploaded media deleted, their accounts suspended, or both. The takedowns were first reported by the New York Post.
In a statement posted to Twitter, Jackson says she’s instructed her team to be less draconian towards live clips going forward, though with the caveat that longer-length videos will be taken down. “It was never [management’s] intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed,” writes Jackson. “Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand. I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice.”
