    This Instagram Account Photographs Kids On The Delhi Metro And Calls Them “Pole-Dancers”

    The admin has stated that the account is only meant to be cute and funny.

    Pole Dancers Of Delhi Metro is an Instagram page that uploads photos and videos of children hanging on to poles on Delhi Metro trains.

    While the ironic account is meant to be funny, it is problematic as the pictures are taken and uploaded without the permission or knowledge of the children or their parents.

    The account, which started in June 2015, has uploaded 47 photos over the past nine months.

    Many users have been questioning the account about its ethics and novelty.

    The account admin has agreed that people might find it troubling, but maintains that it's only supposed to be cute and funny.

    BuzzFeed has reached out to the account administrator and is awaiting a response.
