Instagram accused of discriminating against boy with disability after taking down pictures of him without prosthetic eye

Ms Beswick runs her own parenting blog and has documented life with her son’s disability for the last six months. She said it is the second time a photo has been removed and both times the images showed Harry without his prosthetic eye.

The mother, from Stoke-on-Trent, said: “I appreciate that he looks different and people might not want to look at it, but that is not Instagram’s decision.

“For Instagram to decide that Harry’s face is not suitable is disgusting. It does feel like discrimination to me. It is my son’s face and I am very proud to be showing him off.”

Harry has had 10 operations since birth, including two procedures to restructure his skull and build an eye socket.
