Facebook’s (FB[1]) Instagram isn’t backing down[2] from its nipple ban.

Iinstagram-nipple-ban-fb-stock-freethenipplenstagram plans to continue its nipple ban despite protest against it. In a statement made to BBC News, the company’s CEO Kevin Systrom said that he plans to keep the social media website “the safest possible place for teens and adults.”

Systrom also went on to say that Instagram’s rules and restrictions apply to all people, including celebrities. The social media website has a ban on “violent, nude, partially nude… pornographic or sexually suggestive photos,” reports BBC News.

Scout Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, and Rhianna have both taken a stand against the nipple ban[3]. The two celebrities are using the hashtag #FreeTheNipple to protest against the social media website’s policy. Willis protested against the ban by walking around New York topless and posting pictures of her stroll to Twitter (TWTR[4]).
