Want to get #InstaNaked? No thanks, Apple doesn't like it, says Instagram

Is freedom of expression dear to you? Well, Instagram loves you for that, as long as you're willing to keep your clothes on.

The problem is that as soon as you start undressing to express your openness, Instagram will almost certainly censor your images with a sad face and with a finger pointed towards Cupertino.

Fact is that a bulk of Instagram's users use iOS devices and either download or update Instagram's app through Apple's App Store. At the moment, Instagram enjoys a universal rating on App Store which makes it available to all 12+ users across the globe. The moment Instagram starts celebrating your right to express your figure, the number zooms up to 17 and over and it gets branded as an app that endorses nudity.

Obviously, business sense prevailed. The day when you would express your freedom to undress and post your pictures is still years away unless Instagram can somehow convince Apple to start endorsing your freedom too.

So far, celebrities like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have seen their topless pictures being removed by Instagram. The number will swell to thousands if we consider non-celebrities and female campaigners are already crying hoarse over their male counterparts being allowed to post their bare chested photos. Utterly discriminatory!

Tell Apple, says Instagram.
