Earlier today, Oxlade shared a post memorializing Mohbad, who passed away suddenly last week at age 27.
However, fans quickly noticed that Oxlade had previously restricted Mohbad from viewing his Instagram stories.
After fans called out Oxlade for restricting Mohbad while claiming to celebrate him after his death, Oxlade deleted the tribute post entirely.
