Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is known for his beautiful and bizarre social media posts, and the photo-sharing powerhouse Instagram has recently suspended his account. Wanna help him bring it back? Read about the petition started by The Future Heart below…

Since last fall Instagram has almost solely been Wayne Coyne’s social media outlet (yes, he uses twitter – but mostly just auto-tweets from his Instagram account). Yesterday Instagram closed his account, clearing a treasure trove of concert photos, behind-the-scenes images of current Flaming Lips projects, rare band pictures and posters from their 30 year career, shots with other musicians (Patrick Carney, Jack White, Kevin Parker, etc), weird art, playful selfies and random scenes from his daily life. Wayne’s account at instagram.com/waynecoyne totaled 1227 photos – all now gone.

Please sign this petition to restore the deleted photos. It will be sent to Instagram to state our case that deleting his account punishes us, Wayne’s fans, not him. We are requesting his account be treated the same as other celebrities who have posted photos violating their terms of use yet remain active (i.e. Tyler, the Creator, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr).
