Chelsea Handler Calls Out Instagram for Being Sexist After Taking Down Topless Photo

Chelsea Handler Calls Out Instagram for Being Sexist After Taking Down Topless Photo

Chelsea Handler lets it all hang out while riding a horse in this new Instagram photo alongside a similar Vladimir Putin one.

The 39-year-old comedian’s picture was quickly removed for violating the “community guidelines.”

“Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to show I have a better body than Putin,” she tweeted.

She then re-posted the photo, writing “If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it’s ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?”

She captioned it, “If instagram takes this down again, you’re saying Vladimir Putin Has more 1st amendment rights than me. Talk to your bosses.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Chelsea Handler’s photo being removed from the site?

    I DON’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT THESE PEOPLE, WHY THEY ARE MAD WHEN THEIR NAKED PHOTOS GOT HACKED AND IN THE OTHER SIDE ALSO MAD WITH INSTAGRAM BECAUSE NIPPLE POLICY ? WHY DON’T YOU GET NAKED ALL THE TIME ? SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY DRESS OR SHIRT AGAIN. DON’T YOU EVER THINK what are the consequences if TEENAGERS LOOK AT WOMEN TOPLESS PHOTO ? Don’t that will shape their character to look down on women??!!!!!! You can SUE YOUR RIGHT but with LOGIC & THINK about the CONSEQUENCES FOR YOUNG GENERATION!!!! BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT LIVIN ALONE IN THIS WORLD!!!!!! Sorry for my terrible english

    I feel good….I don’t like her.

    Thanks for censoring her nipples but not Putin’s, that’s not sexist at all. (sarcasm). You realize male & female nipples are anatomically the same right? If we can handle his man-boobs there’s no logical reason we can’t handle hers…

  • FreeThoughtGuy

    The difference is the people who were hacked had their photos put on the internet without their permission. Most were also far more graphic then just a picture of nipples. Weather might be a good reason not to get naked all the time, you know, especially in the winter. Regardless, she’s not naked. Only topless, just like Putin in the other photo. What is going to happen if teenager’s look at topless women? Half of them have breasts anyway. The other half will just go on the internet to see them or get a girlfriend and see hers. There is no consequences to anyone seeing a female nipple, except maybe people will stop seeing them as obscene sex organs, which they are not. And maybe, just maybe, they will start seeing women less as sex objects. Other cultures have got over it, we can too…

    i can’t wait for her show to come back to netflix.. apparently it’s gonna be forever.

  • NeverEclipsed81

    she posts her own photos so no one will bother to hack her.

  • j k

    everyone and their mother knows instagram doesn’t allow that. way to call for attention

  • Bre

    I don’t think it is appropriate only because her account is public and if it ends up on the popular page little kids could see it and click on the page and this give the wrong idea about good values……

  • jane

    she is right in a very small way. kinda always wondered why women always get censored on upper/lower regions and men don’t.

  • Natalie

    “good values”… kids are allowed to watch violent tv shows and movies, but god forbid they see a woman’s nipple.

  • Pretty Little Mars

    1) the women who’s photos were leaked did not give consent to having their photos put online therefore making it a a huge violation of privacy and it’s a SEX CRIME. and don’t tell me that they shouldn’t have been taking nude photos in the first place, people should mind their own business, no one is asking to get their photos leaked.
    2) if more women go topless in public it will rid of the stigma behind women’s breasts – by the way, if you’re going to discuss the character of women who go topless you better be discussing the character of men who go topless in public too.

  • Sprite

    Could be because of silly grins, family values. Animated animals would blush, especially Felix.
    Climate change says we should not wear as much, when we should be wearing more. Don’t they have privacy settings and data protection would be difficult?

  • suzybel

    Am I the only one who doesn’t care to see this dumb*ss without a top?

  • FreeThoughtGuy

    yeah, it’s not like nipples are to feed children or anything. Might as well take down images of pablum too, about just as harmful… :/

  • FreeThoughtGuy

    seems like you care enough to comment… smh

  • Jeff Traube

    OK, Chelsea, you have bigger boobs than Vladamir Putin. But how do you stack up against women in Playboy ?
