8. So she took to twitter — and then the streets, LITERALLY — to express her disgust of Instagram’s censorship policy.

A brief experiment that just proved everything I think about @instagram is correct.....

14. (As such, it’s no coincidence that her current Twitter avatar is the image that Rihanna was suspended from the service for posting.)


It’s a magazine cover, SHEESH.

15. She tweeted and tweeted and shared images of breast cancer survivors, asking Instagram how they would handle such images.

16. Until she COULD TAKE NO MORE. So she walked down the streets of New York’s Lower East Side without a shirt herself.

What @instagram won't let you see #FreeTheNipple

17. She even bought flowers topless.

Legal in NYC but not on @instagram

18. And that’s her point: If she can legally walk around topless in New York, why not Instagram?

And #FREETHENIPPLE was born.

19. Not comfortable with her photos?

My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me. However, I don't wish to force this view on anyone.

20. Bye, hater.

If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me.
