Defamation Reporting Form

This form is intended for reporting content posted on Instagram that you believe is defamatory under the law or otherwise violates your personal legal rights. Other types of reports will not be addressed through this form. Before alleging that content on Instagram is defamatory, you may want to seek guidance from a qualified attorney.
Please note that defamation is a legal concept that has serious implications, and it may not apply in your jurisdiction. Defamation is generally a false assertion of fact that injures your reputation. If you believe content on Instagram violates our Community Guidelines (example: bullying, harassment, hate speech), please visit the Help Center.

Without a court order establishing the unlawfulness of the content you wish to report, Instagram is not able to act on that content. If you have not already done so, you may wish to contact the party responsible for posting the content directly. If you obtain a court order against them, you may provide it to us and we will be happy to look into the matter further. If you believe content on Instagram violates our Community Guidelines (example: bullying, harassment, hate speech), please visit the Help Center to learn more about how to report it to us.
Instagram is not in a position to adjudicate the truth or falsity of statements made by third parties, and consistent with Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act, is not responsible for those statements. As a result, we are not liable to act on the content you want to report. If you believe content on Instagram violates our Community Guidelines (example: bullying, harassment, hate speech), please visit the Help Center to learn more about how to report it to us.
