Instagram Removed This Girl’s Account For Posting Pics In Her Underwear! But Was The Real Reason Because She's Overweight?!?

| Filed under: Photos!BodyInstagram

This sounds an awful lot like size discrimination to us!

19-year-old Samm Newman says her Instagram account got shut down after she posted those pics above because she had “violated community guidelines”!

Wait. Really??

Are Samm’s Instas sort of scandalous? Sure. But it’s not like we haven’t seen our fair share of other ladies in nothing but their bra and panties! And they’re still posting pics no problemo!

So why did Samm’s pics set off such a fuss on Instagram??

She says it’s because she’s overweight!

Samm explained why she was so upset to get booted off, saying:

"My Instagram, it was my safe place because when I was there, I could share anything. I didn't find the bra at all inappropriate. 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?"

Instagram has since restored Samm’s account and apologized for mistakenly deleting her pics.

A spokesperson for the social media site admitted:

"When our team processes reports from other members of the Instagram community, we occasionally make a mistake. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

We’re glad this double standard has been corrected but Instagram SERIOUSLY needs to be careful that this doesn’t happen again!

    fat or skinny. What normal people post pictures in their undies? Either wear clothing or be totally naked. Whats with all this indecisiveness? Either or, chick.

    I know very well what it means. Me too, I have been censored by this stupide site, because I simply wrote the word sex without hashtag, without knowing in advance that the hashtag of this word is prohibited… In addition I was blocked by (a stupid celebrity) a person or by the complaints of a multiple of losers for this reason ridicule.

    This pisses me off because this girl I know is all about fitness and her entire instagram is full of photos of her in thongs all the time and I know people report her pictures but she never gets them taken down. Instagram is definitely anti plus sized people.

    Skinny people post shit like this constantly, even on other sites.. and they don't get shit for it.

    Who cares about weight. I'm so sick if this! She's stunning! It's hers. And if it's private she accepts who gets to see her bod.

    I highly doubt it was due to her weight. She probably just wanted to get attention of some sort or try to make people feel bad for her. Are we forgetting about Kendall Jenners nipples all over IG? Those didn't last because IG didn't allow it, they don't allow any kind of nudity. Kendall isn't fat, she's thin, real thin and she still got her pictures blocked on there. So I don't see why this girl upset because IG blocked her pictures.

    Re: Lindsay Joy – You call this stunning? LMAO

  13. Duh? says – reply to this


    For real, who would want to see tho? And besides since when did exhibition become a part of social networking?Keep those pictures to yourselves and don't share !

  14. littlebit says – reply to this


    i don't want to see ANYONE in their underwear fat or skinny. Sadly in today's world nothing is kept sacred and morals is non-existant. smh
