On Twitter Sarah Silverman shared a photo in which she stands topless in front of her bathroom mirror. She wrote that Instagram had removed the photo on the grounds that it was “obscene.”
IG took this pic down bc it was obscene. Unsexualized women’s breasts r obscene. If they’re oiled up & smashed down by, say, sexy suspenders covering just the nipples, that’s not obscene. That’s sexy!— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) May 10, 2019

On Instagram, she made her point by sharing a censored version of the picture alongside an uncensored image of a topless man.

I praise Sarah Silverman for doing this and hope she will continue the fight to free the nipple. As we all know as Nudists that the human body is nothing to be afraid of. That you Sarah!
