Diet Madison Avenue Goes Dark After News of Defamation Suit

Social media accounts and website disappear overnight


Anonymous industry whistleblower account Diet Madison Avenue effectively disappeared last night, several hours after news of a civil defamation suit filed against the entity went live in the advertising trade press.

As of approximately 10 p.m. last night, its Instagram and Twitter accounts had been shut down, and its WordPress domain is now “parked.” Today, the Instagram account is private but seems to have been reset with no posts and no followers.

Before disappearing, the account posted an Instagram Story featuring what appeared to be an exchange of text messages between two individuals.
