Instagram close Marilyn Monroe lookalike’s account in case she’s mistaken for real star

A MARILYN Monroe impersonator has blasted Instagram for closing her account — in case she was mistaken for the real star.

Isabella Bliss, 34, had her profile removed five times in two weeks even though iconic pin-up Marilyn died in 1962 and would be 94 if alive today.

Burlesque performer Isabella said the bizarre censorship by Instagram owner Facebook is hindering her promotion as she prepares to take to the stage again after lockdown.

She said: “I was asked to clearly state I’m not the celebrity in question.

“It’s almost insulting to the public that Instagram and Facebook think people would mistake me for a woman who’s been dead since 1962.

“It just seems utterly outrageous that I’m being personally attacked or victimised for using my social media platform for part of my business.”

Isabella, of Basildon, Essex, said the pages are her “shop window” and allow her to advertise herself and take bookings.
