Several celebrities are unhappy with the fact that men can go topless on social media but women can't.

In a bid to overcome this, female A-listers have began posting shirtless selfies with men's nipples photoshopped over their own –  a move which evidently keeps the likes of Instagram happy (which bans ladies' nipples).

Model Chrissy Tiegan recently brought the #FreeTheNipple campaign back into the lime light when she posted images from a recent photoshoot which included a nip slip. 

The wife of John Legend was not impressed when her photo was removed, and even posted it more than once in an effort to get the #FreeTheNipple message around.

She then posted a near nip slip with a can of hairspray that just barely covered her lady lumps. 

This prompted hundreds of women to jump on the bandwagon to spread the message. 

A generic picture of a male nipple was even shared around, which people could then simply crop before adding it to their picture. 

One of our favourite OITNB actors even joined in on the fun saying "these are the nipples of Miley Cyrus and Chrissy Tiegan (I hope you don't mind me borrowing them".

Matt McGorry said in his post: "It should be up to the individual woman to decide if she wants to show them, just like men have the choice.

"Part of the stand of #FreeTheNipple is about the right of women to claim what their breasts and nipples mean to THEM, and not have that be defined by how men and much of society decides what their boobies mean."

Matt continued saying: "If you have breasts, you might think, 'I’m not interested in showing my niplets on social media or in public,' in which case you should feel free to keep ‘em swaddled! But shouldn’t you support the freedom of CHOICE."

He then signed off: "At the heart of it, it’s simply about gender equality and equal rights."

It's safe to say he is a new favourite feminist celebrity, so.


A new trend has begun in the #FreeTheNipple social media campaign – and it is hilarious.

Nipple activists are highlighting the gender inequalities that surround the controversial body part.

Seen as men our allowed to be topless on sites such as Instagram and Facebook but women are not, social media users have taken to covering pictures of women’s nipples with… Male nipples!

The idea originally came from Micol Hebron of the USA last year when he created an “acceptable male nipple template.”

And since musicians Our Lady J and La Sera have shared his post on their Facebook pages, the campaign has gone viral.

Dear Instagram, Here, I fixed it:

The template allows women to resize a picture of a male nipple to adequately cover their own, thus making them fit for social media… We’re actually serious.

The music artists have joined a long list of celebrities ranging from Miley Cyrus to Rihanna and Chrissy Teigen who are all for freeing the nipple.

We just can’t wait to see how Instagram are going to deal with this one!  



Scout Willis has taken to the streets of New York City – topless.

The 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is so upset with Instagram’s policy on censoring female nudity, that she’s posted topless snaps of herself on Twitter, walking down the streets of Manhattan.

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.”

“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.'”

The snaps were just two in a series of topless images the actress and model added to her Twitter account, including an old photo of singer Cher in a sheer top and a magazine cover featuring a topless Rihanna.

In one post, Scout said 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.”
