Kim Kardashian weighs in on Instagram controversy, hopes they 'revise' their terms of use

By Gina DiFalco,

Kim Kardashian continues to explain why she isn’t into Instagram’s seemingly new policies, saying she hopes that the company cleans up whatever mess they made.

Although the co-founder tried to clear up the controversy, saying the legal documents are “easy to misinterpret” and they have “no intention” of selling photos to advertising companies without users’ permission, Kardashian is telling friends she will leave the picture posting site if it’s true.

While out in Los Angeles this week, she told TMZ, "I just don't think they should have the right to sell [our photos] to advertising companies on our behalf. What if we don't want to advertise what they want?"

She added, "I just hope they revise it."

As The LA Times reports, Kardashian is Instagram’s most important user, as she has the most followers with 5.7 million, and often posts sexy pictures of herself on the site.

If she left, the hit would be huge for Instagram but would likely boost the popularity of whichever new site she chooses to join.
