Jake Quickenden has slammed Instagram after a sweet photo of him and his stepson was removed twice.
The former X Factor contestant, 32, shared a photo of him with his stepson Freddie cuddled up in bed topless, with a lengthy caption promising to always be there for him and love him like his own son.
Jake was shocked to find the wholesome image was removed not once but twice by Instagram for going against ‘community guidelines’.
After it was deleted the first time, Jake reposted it, writing: ‘I find it baffling that @instagram removed this post for breaking guidelines, I see some s**t on this app, people half naked, fights, drugs the lot, and I put a positive post on about being a positive role model and coming into a little lads life and how hard it can be and the post is removed!!
‘Sort your s**t instagram and don’t remove positive posts that might actually help people…. so here’s the pic!!!
‘And I will continue to be Fred’s mate and help him in anyway I can along with the rest of his brilliant family.’
The photo of Jake and his girlfriend Sophie Church’s son was removed for the second time, after which Jake shared a different image of the two of them, writing: ‘F**k you Instagram removing the post again…. a positive post.
‘Maybe get rid of all the sex bots and fake accounts or people buying followers and likes first before you delete nice positive pictures!!!’
He added: ‘Here you go Instagram…. Fred has a wonderful family and coming into a partners child’s life can be hard, but also so worth it, the kids my little best mate I will try and be a positive role model and help his mum and dad the best way I can!!’
Jake also took to his story to share his frustration, adding: ‘You can troll people, you can give people hate. You can be horrible to people in comments and messages, but they don’t remove any of that s**t but they remove a nice photo.’
He and Sophie have been dating since 2018 and are currently expecting their first child together, having gone past the 30-week mark in the pregnancy at the end of December.
