Ebanie Bridges: Boxer slams trolls for reporting topless pic as Instagram takes it down
Instagram took down the photo where Ebanie Bridges is seen wearing gloves and thongs
Australian boxer Ebanie Bridges, often known as the "Blonde Bomber", is outraged about internet trolls after a seductive photo of hers was taken down by Instagram. Bridges received an Instagram warning after posting a topless photo of herself. In the photo, she is wearing nothing but boxing gloves and thongs.
“Your post goes against our guidelines on adult sexual solicitation," the Instagram notification said. Bridges shared this and said, “OK the trolls/haters are winning TBH. Eh, keep reporting my pic. I can’t re-post my pic. The last thing I wanna do is lose my account,” Instagram reportedly told the boxer that she may lose access to her account in the future if she continued to share similar photos, according to The Sun.
Bridges tweeted the identical photo on December 31, and it is still there on her account, “Hope y’all screenshotted it for your backgrounds before it got removed. Happy New Year,” she wrote in her Instagram story. Bridges defended her image and claimed she wanted to encourage people in a separate post on Twitter and Instagram.

I Will be going into 2022 the same way I entered 2021 not giving a fuck what people think, being me, being real, chasing my dreams and aiming to achieve greatness#HappyNewYear #NYE #NY #BlondeBomber pic.twitter.com/iNwgrV0VKr
She wrote, “I stayed strong and true to myself. Through all the hate, all the people judging me, stereotyping me and praying for me to fail. Mainly cos of how I look & how I promote myself, people couldn’t handle change. I came into the women’s boxing world showing something different and promoting myself using social media (no one was/is going to do it for me) I AM different. I’ll never be like anyone else. I’ve walked my own path and now paved it for others. I like to think I have done a lot for women’s boxing this year and brought many more eyes to the sport by just being myself."
DONT LET ANYONE DEFINE WHO YOU ARE. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t. Be You, Be Real, No Quit. pic.twitter.com/yagnc6b6pX— Blonde Bomber 🥊💁🏼♀️ (@EbanieBridges) December 31, 2021
“I took the hits and the bullets and I survived the attacks to now make it easier for other women who also choose to be feminine and show their beauty whilst still being a beast, and hopefully they don’t get slayed as much as I did. I built my own brand that will continue to grow and hopefully inspired many others, not only women but EVERYONE,” she remarked.
