Scout Willis vs Instagram

Scout Willis goes topless for New York stroll in audacious protest against Instagram anti-nudity policy

Published: 18:10 GMT, 28 May 2014  | Updated: 09:38 GMT, 29 May 2014

When it comes to a protest, Scout Willis certainly knows how to get attention to her cause.

The 22-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis went completely topless for a stroll in New York City on Tuesday in a bid to highlight her disagreement with Instagram's policy against female nudity.

Using hashtag #FreeTheNipple, Scout captioned one shot: 'Legal in NYC but not on @instagram,' while on another, she wrote 'What @instagram won't let you see.' 

In one shot, Scout is brazenly striding along a Manhattan street wearing just a floral skirt and flat shoes with a handbag worn over one arm.

In another, she is seen shopping at a market stall for fresh flowers.

The sometime model and actress is intent on protesting Instagram’s rules prohibiting the use of female nudity - even in the context of women sharing their battles against breast cancer.

'If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me,' she said in one tweet. '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.'

Scout highlighted her problem with the popular social networking site by sarcastically posting a shot from venture capitalist Dan Bilzerian's Instagram account showing a scantily clad buxom women.

 '@instagram pictures of breast cancer survivors have been flagged+deleted but this is super #sick and #hot amiright???' she wrote alongside the image.

Judging by a series of tweets posted over the last few weeks, Scout's protest appeared to stem from Instagram suspending her account for posting a photo of a sweatshirt she designed called The Babe Bomber featuring two topless women.

'@instagram there is no way 2 contact you directly, I would really appreciate response b/c you took a lot of memories from me b/c u h8 nips,' she wrote in one post.

'Can I please just have all my photos back??? I won't even have an account anymore I just want my photos!,' she added.

And in another post, she announced she was 'boycotting' Instagram, while revealing she was thinking of starting a new account 'as an experiment.'

She wrote: 'Only beautiful artistic nudes. And let's see how long till I get kicked off.'

Scout's protest comes a few weeks after a Canadian mother's Instagram was briefly shut down after she posted photographs of herself breastfeeding.

After protesting her case, Heather Bays's account was reinstated but with around seven photographs removed.

Instagram says it allows breastfeeding pictures but 'photos that show a fully exposed breast where the child isn't actively engaged in nursing aren't following our Community Guidelines.'

Under its terms of use, Instagram tells users: 'You may not post violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content via the Service.'

Go Scout!!  :23456
I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.
