Chelsea Handler is at war this morning. No, not with Russia, but with the censors at Instagram. I think everyone has seen the photo of Vladimir Putin shirtless on a horse. Yeah, it can’t be unseen.
Anyways, horse, Vladimir Putin. You get the picture. So, Chelsea Handler decided to poke fun at the infamous picture, and posted herself topless on a horse on Instagram. Cue the Internet censors.
Never one to let a controversy pass her by, she’s accusing Instagram of being sexist. “Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin.” Instagram obviously disagreed and removed the content within 20 minutes.
She followed up the takedown accusing society of double standards. “If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it’s ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?” Someone just grabbed a year from the 1800s at random.
Below is a screen grab from the Daily Mail (censored) of the picture in question. C’mon Instagram, lighten up.
