Scout Willis walks around New York City topless to protest Instagram’s nudity policy

By Amanda Holtzer,

Scout Willis, 22, walked through Manhattan topless on Tuesday, in protest of Instragram’s rules regarding nudity. Wearing nothing but a floral skirt and brown shoes, Willis tweeted several photos of herself.

The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis clearly expressed her opinion on Instagram’s policy. She tweeted a picture of herself with the caption, “What Instagram won’t let you see #FreeTheNipple.” In another caption she wrote, “Legal in NYC but not on Instagram.”

Willis is protesting because Instagram removed one of her photos for violating its Community Guidelines. The photo showed two topless women, and was therefore deleted by the social media platform.

The Independent reports that Instagram later responded, telling Willis that it is “happy to reinstate” her account, “without the images that don’t meet our policies.”

Willis went on to tweet, “My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me.”

Willis’ Instagram account is not currently active. However, she plans to create a new account. She tweeted, “Thinking of starting a new Instagram account as an experiment. Only beautiful, artistic nudes. And let’s see how long till I get kicked off.”

The Times of India reports that an insider said about Scout’s father Bruce Willis, “Bruce was mortified. As everyone knows, he’s actually a very conservative guy and doesn’t like to see his daughter parading around in next to nothing.”
