Belle Delphine, a British cosplayer famous for her provocative photos, has been on Instagram since 2015. But the bathwater stunt, combined with an earlier gag involving the site PornHub, thrust her into the spotlight this year.
Earlier this week, Delphine had as many as 4.5 million Instagram followers. Separately, she has almost 4,400 supporters on Patreon, where anybody who pledges $25 a month or more can view her "lewd HD photosets," and those who pay $50 or more a month get access to her Snapchat, described as her "'naughtiest' social media."
But both of her Instagram accounts were shut down this week in what could be the result of a coordinated attack to report her for featuring "nudity or pornography" in her posts. Instagram did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
