Instagram Stupidly Deletes Mom’s Account Because Of Her Scandalous ‘Nude’ Baby Photos
See that adorable baby up there? Well, apparently we’re all perverts, because according to Instagram, she’s nude. Instagram deleted popular parenting blogger Courtney Adamo‘s account after receiving too many complaints about her photos. Because apparently a toddler’s exposed belly violated their community standards about nudity. To that I say screw you Instagram. According to Adamo:
“On Wednesday evening I posted the above photo of Marlow in her yellow rain boots and her ‘big girl undies’. I wrote about how, despite me trying to delay it, she had decided to be potty trained, and how she had kept her undies dry all day. I thought it was such a sweet photo of my baby girl and her gorgeous, round belly (and outie belly button). And I love that her pride is so evident in the photo – such a sweet and innocent shot of a successful day of potty-training. On Thursday morning the photo was gone from my feed and a another Instagram email was in my inbox. At least this time I knew which photo they had removed.”
Before her account was deleted I followed Adamo, so I can attest that none of her photos depicted ANY nudity. None. Not only that, but Instagram deleted four freaking years of memories without as much as a eff you to Adamo. No explanation, nothing. And this isn’t a rare phenomenon for the company. Just last month Instagram deleted blogger Meghan Tonjes‘ butt selfie photo for being “nudity,” yet it’s apparently totally okay to post ACTUAL nude photos as long as you’re a hot, skinny woman. But babies and heavy women. NOPE.
Here’s how I feel. If you think the above photo is nudity, then guess what. YOU’RE the problem. Not the baby, not the mom, not the photo. Hell, if you have a problem with Tonjes’ butt selfie, then you’re the problem. I get that Instagram is a free service, blah blah blah, but how fucked up is it that Kim Kardashian can post photos of her ass all day (which is fine) but god forbid an actual non-celebrity woman who isn’t a size two does it. But even worse, a mom can’t post a perfectly normal, non-sexual photo of her child without getting a hassle. Seriously, get it together Instagram. Get it together.
