Just moments after the notorious Candy Shop Mansion Instagram account was back online after being shut down over inappropriate content, another post has emerged.

‘Why don’t the women leave the kitchen? That’s not the point…I’m back bitches,’ Travers Beynon wrote in a predictably brazen Instagram post this afternoon.   

The photo features Beynon surrounded by barely-clothed women clamoring around the kitchen benches of his multi-million dollar Gold Coast waterfront home.   

Just moments after the notorious Candy Shop Mansion Instagram account was back online after being shut down over inappropriate content, another controversial post has emerged

The account, which had close to 800,000 followers, was shut down over two weeks ago.  

At the time Candy Shop Mansion event manager Belinda Gavin told Daily Mail Australia, ‘It’s been destructive for us because we were just about to roll out more marketing.’

‘It’s discriminatory because loads of other accounts out there have worse content. 

‘The last couple of posts prior to it being pulled were tame, it just appears to be discrimination,’ she said. 

‘We have had zero response from Instagram despite daily communication to them, no response as to why or how to reinstate, really quite poor given the number of followers our brand has,’ Mr Beynon told the Courier Mail during the Instagram ban.

Beynon was slammed by critics earlier in the month after sharing photographs of naked women sporting matching tattoos of his company logo.

The Candyman was accused of ‘branding’ the women who sported the ink in a sexist show of ‘ownership’. 

Through the Instagram account, the tobacco tycoon gives fans a glimpse into the wild parties he hosts where guests, seemingly entirely comprised of women with little to no clothes, are provided food, drinks and entertainment for free. 

One party held last year heralded as the ‘party of a lifetime’ cost 500k to host at his palatial property in Helensvale. Prospective party goers were required to send a photo and fill out a questionnaire about their ‘freakiest traits’.  

The adult only parties held there are infamous for their debaucherous nature

The Candy Shop Mansion, which is on the Gold Coast,  is the home of tobacco tycoon and notorious party boy Travers Beynon

‘Instagram is how we communicate with our fans,’ said Belinda.  

‘There’s a bunch of haters out there reporting us. We’re in discussion with our lawyers to see what our next option is.’  

But the tobacco tycoon is no stranger to controversy. 

‘Travers is a provocative entertainer – there are no boundaries he won’t exceed,’ the Candy Shop Mansion website says. 

‘Beautiful women, designer clothing and fast cars do not define Travers. What defines him is his desire to break the rules, challenge mindsets and redefine entertainment.’    

After the account shut down the Mansion is in talks with its lawyers to see if it can get it back up and running
