Instagram "incorrectly" and temporarily deleted an account belonging to the mother of Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui, one of the 13 U.S. service members killed in Afghanistan last week.

Shana Chappell said in a Monday Facebook post that her Instagram account had been deleted after she posted a tribute to her son, saying it was because she "gained so many followers" after her son's death "due to [President] Biden’s negligence"; as of Tuesday morning, her account on the photo-sharing app was active again. 

"We express our deepest condolences to Ms. Chappell and her family," a Facebook spokesperson told Fox News in a Tuesday statement. "Her tribute to her heroic son does not violate any of our policies. While the post was not removed, her account was incorrectly deleted and we have since restored it."
