Instagram has yet to respond, or indeed confirm that the original letter is genuine.

Meanwhile, discussion on Reddit has turned to the question as to whether ‘Slütsof In Stagram — A Magical Journey’ is legit or a desperate measure resorted to by a misogynist to avoid legal action. Certainly, there is no shortage of effort that has gone into the creation of the Slütsof In Stagram concept.

Most likely, though, Slütsof In Stagram seems to be a clever ploy to troll Instagram’s lawyers. And what a piece of trolling.
