Instagram deleted the account of the mother of a Marine who died in a suicide bombing attack at the Kabul airport, only to reactivate it Monday night.
Instagram apologized to Shana Chappell for the deletion, saying in an email that it was an “error,” according to the Washington Examiner. “We express our deepest condolences to Ms. Chappell and her family,” the Facebook-owned company added. “Her tribute to her heroic son does not violate any of our policies.”
Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui, 20, was killed last week, along with 12 other service members, during a suicide bombing attack. Nikoui was standing outside the Kabul International Airport gates talking to Afghans during the attack.
After the attack, Chappell, Nikoui’s mother, took to social media, calling out President Joe Biden for his troop withdrawal policies.
