Dear @instagram

The world is going through a lot and it is difficult to keep a track of everything while keeping a good spirit. 

I am extremely saddened by the recent tragedies happening around the world but what makes me even more upset is the apparent disregard of what has been going on in Turkey, my home country. I believe in equality and I’d like to think that we all believe in equality. Unfortunately, it is hard to believe when support is only given to selected events. Turkey has been a victim of terrorism numerous times within the past few months and I have yet to see a symbol of hope and support made for Turkey shared on your profile. I am sad for the lives that were lost unnoticed. I wish they could have gotten the support that we all give to so many others.

Instagram started with the principle of#communityfirst. Where is the community? I am disappointed that community is everything BUT Turkey although Turkey is even within your Top 5 most active countries. I applaud you for sharing your thoughts and prayers with Paris and Brussels, as we all should, but would it hurt to share them with Turkey too? EVERYBODY NEEDS LOVE! 🙏🏼❤️✌🏼️ /
