According to their guidelines, Instagram acknowledges that while "people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature", nudity is simply not allowed.
"This includes photos, videos and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks," they read.
"It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos in the context of breastfeeding, birth-giving and after-birth moments, health-related situations (for example, post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest are allowed."
If an Instagram user violates the community guidelines, they have every right to remove the content.
They can also disable accounts, and in some cases, work with law enforcement when they "believe that there’s a risk of physical harm or threat to public safety."
