US pop star Madonna is critical of the guidelines on Instagram regarding revealing photos. A series of photos of the singer was deleted.
Pop star Madonna has criticized the guidelines on Instagram regarding revealing photos of users. “I still find it amazing that we live in a culture that allows every inch of the female body to be shown, except for the nipple.
As if that were the only part of the female anatomy that could be sexualized, “wrote the 63-year-old on Thursday (local time) about a photo series in which she can be seen in underwear.
In several places, Madonna covered a nipple with a heart emoji in the pictures. In her own words, she had previously uploaded the photos without the emojis – this series of photos was then deleted, the singer wrote.

The Instagram guidelines on the ban on nude photos say: “This also applies to photos, videos and some digitally created content that shows intercourse, genitals and close-ups of naked buttocks. This also includes certain photos of female nipples. ”
In the context of breastfeeding, childbirth, or to draw attention to health issues, female nipples are allowed. Similar rules also apply on Facebook. Male nipples are exempt from the regulation on both platforms.
