Toronto rap star Tory Lanez isn’t ready to bid farewell to Quarantine Radio. The hip-hop entertainer has lit up social media with an intent to bring back his popular Instagram Live series for at least one more week.
Tory Lanez Teases Quarantine Radio’s Mighty Return

Wait, There’s More
In early April 2020, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri went online to explain why his company had to shut down Tory’s Quarantine Radio. Despite his love for Lanez’s broadcasts, Mosseri explained why NSFW content ultimately forced IG to get involved.
“Quarantine Radio is great. So first shout-out to Tory Lanez on that. Quarantine Radio is not banned. The lives have been great, the lives with the fans have been great but you can’t have nudity on Instagram. That’s part of our community guidelines. That’s the rules and we can’t make exceptions. And on a couple of those lives yesterday and a few of those accounts, there was nudity. So we had to stop the live and there’s a short period of time where you can’t go live again and that just, we have to stick to the rules otherwise why do we have them? But generally a big fan of Tory Lanez, big fan of Quarantine Radio – I hope it comes back soon but there’s no nudity.”
Before You Go
The same week, some hilarious memes went viral centered on Tory Lanez’s now-infamous Instagram Live sessions. The Internet came through with epic jokes about Quarantine Radio’s epic but short-lived run.
