What happens if the comment you replied to is deleted or you delete your reply reel
If the comment you replied to is deleted, the reel you posted as a reply will also be deleted.
If you delete your reply, any remixes of your reply reel will be also deleted and any reels using your original audio will be muted. If you restore your reel within 30 days from your account settings, any remixes and original audio will also be restored.

What happens if the original reel is deleted

If the original reel is deleted, all reply reels created from comments on the original reel will also be deleted.

What happens if the original reel creator sets their account to private

If the creator of the original reel sets their account to private, only their followers will be able to see the reel and its comments. No new reply reels to comments can be made on that reel. Existing reply reels will still be visible but won’t link back to the original reel unless the viewer follows the original reel creator.
