On Wednesday Madonna posted a vintage topless picture of her herself but it was quickly removed from the site for violating Instagram’s nudity policy. A day later the Queen of Pop posted another vintage topless picture taken from her 1992 book Sex.
But this time Madonna had censored the image herself, covering her nipples with a black strip. 'Why is it ok to show ass but not breasts?' she wrote. 'Drowning in the hypocrisy of social media #artforfreedom #UnapologeticbItch ❤️#rebelheart.'
Madonna isn't the only celebrity to fall foul of Instagram’s nudity policy. Miley Cyrus has also shown her support for the campaign dubbed 'Free the nipple' after she posted a topless photo of herself on the image sharing site, which was of course quickly removed.
But Cyrus followed up the image by posting collages of her head on a variety of different bodies showing her support for #FreeTheNipple. The movement has also been supported by Rhianna and Scout Willis, who last year took a topless stroll in New York to demonstrate that it was legal to walk topless in NYC but yet Instagram won't allow users to post images of breasts on the site.
