Earlier this week, Toronto college student Rupi Kaur posted this photo to her Instagram account.
The next day, Instagram removed the photo, claiming it violated Community Guidelines.
After it was removed, Kaur re-posted the photopointing out that it does not violate Instagram’s stated guidelines.
The guidelines state that users are prohibited from sharing content that: belongs to someone else, shows nudity, mature, or illegal content, or promotes or glorifies self-harm, none of which Kaur believes her photo did.
When Instagram deleted it a second time, Kaur posted it on Facebook, with an open letter to Instagram protesting the removal.
“I will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in an underwear but not be okay with a small leak,” she wrote on her Facebook page.
Kaur celebrated the return of her photos with a post on — yes — Instagram.
