text to copy and paste for @crewel.therapy

(The following text was written by @keinhelm4 and is shared here with permission.)

The account @crewel.therapy was targeted by brigading and wrongly taken down. @crewel.therapy is a Black artist who uses embroidery to describe the violence of white supremacy. Sharing experiences about the harm of white supremacy is not hate speech, especially given the context of recent mass shootings and domestic terrorism in the US. Please reinstate their account with full access. Allowing this account to be shut down is silencing a Black person who actively supports anti-racism.

In the meantime, support @crewel.therapy by following their new account: @crewel.communication.

The account @gummywormbelly was wrongly removed from IG. @gummywormbelly is a queer artist and vocal anti-racist whose posts make the IG community a safer place for marginalized people. Please reinstate their account with full access.

In the meantime, support @gummywormbelly by following their new account: @theothergummy.
