Shortly after her account was reinstated, Chappell wrote on Twitter, "Weirdly when FB and IG took away my accounts I also had lost my Twitter account which I couldn’t understand because I hadn’t posted anything on it. But today I was able to get back on it."
In August of 2021, Instagram deleted the account belonging to the grieving mother of the Marine who was killed during the suicide bomb attack at Kabul airport amidst President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from the country.
The account was reactivated a short time later after the media highlighted the story and claimed the deletions were due to an "error" adding, "We express our deepest condolences to Ms. Chappell and her family. Her tribute to her heroic son does not violate any of our policies."
Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui, 20, along with 12 other service members were killed in a bombing while standing outside a gate at the Kabul airport during the US withdrawal.
Nikoui’s mother, Shana Chappell, had been vocal on social media slamming Biden as being responsible for the attack due to his failed policies.
In a scathing Facebook post describing the scene at Nikoui’s homecoming at Dover Air Force Base, Chappell said her son’s blood was on Biden’s hands.
“President Joe Biden," she wrote before she was banned, "This msg is for you! I know my face is etched into your brain! I was able to look you straight in the eyes yesterday and have words with you."
"After I lay my son to rest you will be seeing me again!" She continued. "Remember I am the one who stood 5 inches from your face and was letting you know I would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh, and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story and I had to tell you ‘that this isn’t about you so don’t make it about you!!!’ You then said you just wanted me to know that you know how I feel and I let you know that you don’t know how I feel and you do not have the right to tell me you know how I feel!"
"U then rolled your f*cking eyes in your head like you were annoyed with me….I then proceeded to tell you again how you took my son away from me and how I will never get to hug him, kiss him, laugh with him again, etc… u turned to walk away and I let you know my son’s blood was on your hands and you threw your hand up behind you as you walked away from me."
Shana Chappell claimed that Biden "did this all on purpose," referring to the botched troop withdrawal and adding, "Only we the people can save our country." She also stated that Biden is "not the president of the United States of America," and that "Cheating isn’t winning."
"You turned your back on my son, on all of our Heros!!! [sic] you are leaving the White House one way or another because you do not belong there! MY SONS BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS!!! All 13 of them, their blood is on your hands!!!! If my president Trump was in his rightful seat then my son and the other Heros would still be alive!!!! You will be seeing me again very soon!!!"
After the post was removed Chappell wrote on Facebook, "It seems Instagram took it upon themselves to delete my account because I am assuming it was because I gained so many followers over my son’s death due to Biden’s negligence, ignorance, and him being a traitor! I’m gonna assume that Facebook is gonna delete me next! Funny how these leftist one-sided pieces of crap don’t want the truth to come out!"
Chappell added that after she began posting to Instagram about Nikoui’s death, the Meta-owned company began sending threatening warnings related to posts she had previously posted.
