“Who do I want to fight? Mark Zuckerberg! Lad, I’m going to punch your head in. I’m sick of you!” Pimblett said in a post-fight interview with Michael Bisping.
“I’m sick of you shutting my Instagram account down when all I do is help charities and help people with mental health problems,” the fighter continued. “You’re the biggest bully in the world!”
Pimblett’s Instagram account is currently active and has nearly 400,000 followers.
“The hypocritical nature of Instagram and Facebook is just disgusting, and what they get away with,” Pimblett said at a press conference after the ban.
“It kills me. Mark Zuckerberg’s a lizard. I’ve got to be a lot smarter on my social media, because as you know, I’ve had two accounts took off me now, and the second account had 120,000 followers.”
Pimblett has an impressive 18-3 fight record.
