Banned despite hundreds of other photos just like it on the social media site.
Banned for violating the site’s community guidelines preventing nude or “mature” images.
The ban sparking outrage among thousands of users.
So what makes this ‘butt selfie’ so different from others before it?
Why is this one not acceptable but that of Kim Kardashian or of ‘butt selfie queen’ Jen Selter is allowed?
Well the woman in question thinks that it is because HER butt selfie is fat.
The woman who posted it says, “I was completely covered, but fat. Therefore, pornographic.”
Meghan Tonjes, a musician and video blogger from Los Angeles, shared an image of her butt selfie wearing a pair of black bikini briefs and T-shirt, captioned ‘booty appreciation #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards’ on Instagram.
Meghan regularly posts images of her body and says she is proud of how she looks.
She said she has admiration for her curves and she loves how she is ageing.
But Instagram didn’t approve and informed her the image ‘violates their nudity laws’ and the site took it down.
Meghan was furious and responded to the social media via another social media app. YouTube.
She made a video where she addressed the issue in which she said Instagram had double-standards. She said that the notion of society being uncomfortable with a picture because it defies the ‘normal’ standards of beauty that we have set for ourselves does not mean an image is invalid.
