As per The Verge, Live has been around since 2016, and with that in mind, it comes as a bit of shock that Instagram has only just now started supporting moderators for its streams.

Moderation has become a much-needed staple on other live streaming platforms, like Twitch and YouTube, where comments can quickly get ugly.
