Scout Willis Goes Topless To Protest Instagram Nipple Ban

PhilHaney by PhilHaney on May. 29, 2014
Scout Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore launched a new campaign this week called #FreeTheNipple illustrating the plight of female nipples on Instagram.  They aren’t allowed! Nipples are in the same category as dog fighting, murder and copyright protected material. Ironically this whole nipple shebang started after Instagram deleted a photo of Willis wearing a shirt… with two topless women on it. Willis feels it is time to raise your hands, raise your voice and give the nipples another choice. And also she is probably just really bored.

Twitter is cool with sharing nipples. Some websites are not. #FreeTheNipple

In protest Willis took her top off to demonstrate that while it is legal for ladies to go bare-chested in public on the streets of New York, you cannot post those bare boobies to Instagram. There are plenty of places to post your nip slips on the internet, so why not Instagram? The stuffy suits that run the photo sharing social network have a policy against nudity which includes female nipples but not male nipples. Hypocrisy! #FreeTheNipple!  In the past people like Rihanna have been banned from Instagram for showing topless photos. I guess Instagram doesn’t like making people happy.

Stop to smell the nipples.

Maybe in the next Die Hard movie her dad Bruce can break into the Instagram headquarters and free the nipples? I would totally watch Die Hard With Your Top Off! While Scout Willis has gathered a lot of support for her #FreeTheNipple campaign, for some reason #FreeTheWang did not immediately start trending in support of men going bottomless when I said it just now.
