Disgraced comedian Alex ‘Shooter’ Williamson’s Instagram account @shooterwilliamson has been deleted.
As Pedestrian report, the account, which boasted 496,000 followers, has been scrubbed. Williamson has since started a new account under @shootzwilliamson.
In a post on the account, Alex Williamson detailed an email exchange he had with a Daily Telegraph journalist in which he revealed he had “no damn idea” why his Instagram account was deleted.
“I’ve had a few community strikes for copyright infringements and a couple of stories have been mistakenly reported as ‘bullying’, where I’ve referred to a friend as a ‘good cunt’ and it’s been taken down and flagged as abuse haha,” Williamson wrote.
“I have at times on social media referred to myself as a ‘machine’, which may have also been taken literally by whatever tool Instagram uses to disable bot accounts.”
Williamson’s account being deleted follows a recent social media maelstrom that saw the comedian accused of abuse by his ex-partner, musician Peach PRC.
On Tuesday, April 27th musician Peach PRC took to Twitter to share a statement accusing Williamson of “abusive” and “predatory” behaviour.

“He is abusive, manipulative and predatory and has done absolutely vile things to not only myself but others who I won’t mention for their privacy,” Peach wrote. The musician alleged that Williamson had a history of “grooming and abusing young vulnerable women and girls.”
In the hours following Peach PRC’s initial post Williamson took to Instagram to deny the allegations. Sharing a series of expletive-ridden videos, denouncing Peach’s statement as ”horse shit.”
The 32-year-old comedian alleged that Peach had previously attempted to “deplatform” him via TikTok months prior — ultimately deleting the posts when they failed to gain traction.
“She put out those accusations and then she deleted them when they didn’t hit the audience she wanted them to.”
