Madonna has launched an attack on photo-sharing site Instagram over its rules on nudity after it removed an image of her posing topless.
The 56-year-old responded to the censorship by posting a fully nude photo of herself to her 3.5 million followers with just her nipples covered.
Beneath the sultry image, the singer wrote the caption: “Why is it ok to show ass but not breasts? Drowning in the hypocrisy of social media #artforfreedom #unapologeticbitch #rebelheart”
The picture had received more than 47,500 likes just six hours after it was posted.
Instagram’s rules state that users may not post “violent, nude, partially nude … pornographic or sexually suggestive” photos.
