A student from Ohio wants to discuss body image on social media after she says Instagram deleted her account for “violating community guidelines”, even though all she did was post a photo of herself in a bra and shorts (which is what pretty much 99% of people on Instagram do all the time).
Fat is not a bad word. How confident can you be if you keep censoring yourself because people don’t want to look at you?
Samm Newman had previously kicked off a ‘body positivity movement’ on the social media site where she and a group of other bigger ladies used hash tags like #bodylove and #pizzasister4lyfe whenever they uploaded photos of themselves.
After Samm had uploaded the image in the title above, Instagram deleted her account.
So what’s Instagram playing at here? Were they worried the #pizzasister movement would completely take over Instagram? Do they feel they have a reputation to uphold? Did they sneakily delete this girl’s account because she’s fat? Because it kind of looks like that’s 100% the reason.
