Chrissy Teigen attempted to #FreeTheNipple


Chrissy Teigen and Instagram came head to head yesterday when the social media site removed a photo that Ms Teigen had posted to her account.

The photo was from a recent topless spread in W Magazine. The shoot, which is ironically titled, “Privacy Settings,” also features Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, and a host of other social media savvy supermodels.

When the site removed the 29-year-old’s post, Ms Teigen took to Twitter to retaliate. “The nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back.”

The Sports Illustrated model who is married to John Legend then reposted three filtered versions of the photo that made it look like an oil painting, a black and white pencil sketch, and a coloured pencil sketch.

Unfortunately Instagram didn’t agree that this met the terms of their rule that “nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK" and removed them too. 

Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Scout Willis and Rihanna are other celebrities that have taken to social media to express their opinion that the female nipple should be allowed roam free. Rihanna even deleted her Instagram account when a photo that she posted with her nipple in it was removed by the site.
