Scout Willis Goes Topless For Instagram Protest
Bruce Willis’ daughter bears her breasts in New York to raise awareness about Instagram’s nudity policy…
Scout Willis has taken to the streets of New York in a one-woman protest against Instagram’s policy of suspending accounts that feature images of women’s nipples.
Her protest seems to have stemmed from the fact that her account was suspended a few weeks ago because she uploaded an image of a jumper she had designed featuring two topless women, and she’s been getting increasingly angry ever since.
Rihanna’s account was famously suspended as well after she shared a photograph of herself topless on the cover of French magazine, Lui – and it’s this picture that Scout herself uses as her Twitter cover picture.
Willis has tweeted photographs of herself out and about wearing nothing but a wrap skirt and brogues, the point she is making is to encourage people to embrace and celebrate the female form rather than to criminalise it.
She gained lots of public support with her hashtag #freethenipple, and while Instagram have reinstated her account, she has now boycotted them.
Scout tweeted last night: "Off to bed. But the overwhelming amount of love, support and respect that's come my way today has been mind blowing".
It's refreshing to see a young woman so comfortable with her body that she's willing to make such a stand against sexist double standards - viva the new Lady Godiva!
