Oh noooo!! BOTH Cock Destroyers’ individual accounts removed from Instagram

Oh noooo!! BOTH Cock Destroyers’ individual accounts removed from Instagram

The iconic pair disbanded earlier this year and now it appears they’ve both individually been removed from Instagram.

 

When Rebecca More and Sophie Anderson (aka The Cock Destroyers) split earlier this year, their fans were devastated. The D destroying duo had become instant social media icons after a clip of the pair went viral back in 2018 and they’ve been used widely in meme content across every social media outlet since. 

 

The only consolation for the gays fans after the sudden break-up was that they both continued to work and post similar clips online – albeit separately. 

 

This morning when Instagram account @GaysWhoMemeWell went to post a meme, which featured a clip of Sophie Destroyer, the porn idol was nowhere to be found on Instagram to tag. 

 

After a brief inspection, neither could Rebecca’s. GAY PANIC ENSUED.

 

 

They’re both still active on their Twitter and Onlyfans, but (for now at least) it appears Instagram have deleted their accounts. 

 

The timing of both being deleted at the same time is bizarrely suspicious but given that the two no longer collaborate – after a fairly public parting of ways – we can only assume it’s just really shitty luck. 

Gay sadness. 

 

Sophie confirmed her account deletion on Twitter saying she was “still trying to get it back”:

 

Rebecca has yet to comment on hers. 

 

For years now Instagam (like many platforms) and its relationship with content creators – especially queer-leaning ones – has proved tricky.

In just the last few month gay meme accounts like @FakeVersBottom, @BlockedonGrindr and @ItsBritneyMeme (to name just a few) have found themselves deleted, with no real explanation or right to appeal. This has been a common pattern for gay accounts particularly (anyone remember the wonderful @BruhJobs?), a problem that straight creators don’t seem to encounter in the same way. 

 

Many queer creators speak about a ‘culture of fear’ on social media for LGBTQ+ creators, because not only are they not defended against homophobic trolls day-to-day, they’re also not protected when they act on mass.

 

Do social media outlets do enough to protect their LGBT+ creators given the amount of queerphobic trolling that goes on online? It was notable that the hashtag #Instagay had been disabled earlier this year, meaning it couldn’t be searched anywhere on the platform, due to “reports of inappropriate content” (I put that on selfies sooo…).

This could have possibly been explained as an algorithm oversight when it comes to reports – except it was suddenly magically reinstated in time for Pride Month. 

 

We have a whole article about this written and almost ready-to-go, so we’ll talk about that in more detail soon. 

 

For now though, let’s hope Sophie and Rebecca get reinstated soon! We say: #JusticeForDestroyers
