Free the Nipple – Celebrities Craze
Still mourning the loss of @badgalriri on Instagram? Us too. Back in April, Rihanna was kicked off the site for posting images from a photo shoot she’d done, featuring pop music’s most infamous set of nipples. Soon after, Demi and Bruce’s daughter, Scout Willis, walked the streets of NYC topless, protesting her own Instagram ban for posting a photo of two topless women (actually, a photo of a T-shirt with two topless women on it, to be more precise).

If that’s not enough nipple action for you, you’ve probably seen the hashtag #freethenipple floating around your news feeds; it’s based on the campaign and film of the same name, which protest the censorship laws surrounding women’s nipples in the US. Currently, in most states, nipple-baring is legal for men but not women, and that includes breast-feeding in public.
