'Double standards': Instagram slammed for allowing Kendall Jenner to post NUDES but banning others
'The Keeping Up With The Kardashians' stars are no strangers to breaking the internet by sharing nude social media posts, starting from Khloe Kardashian's Good American campaign to Kim Kardashian's PAPER magazine shoot. Now, Kendall Jenner has joined the tribe by sharing completely naked photographs from her i-D Magazine's photoshoot.
The 26-year-old posted a series of snaps from her photoshoot with i-D Magazine on her Instagram on Thursday, February 24. Although Kendall's new look caught the followers' attention, they were surprised to see a third snap where the supermodel has posed completely naked. As a result, many social media critics blasted Kendall Jenner for going against Instagram's community guidelines.
One person commenting under Kendall's post wrote, "Me writing a bad word instagram:your acc has been banned meanwhile Kendall." Another person asked, "So wearing clothes is out of fashion now?" A third questioned, "Nudity??", while another added, "You're literally completely naked. How are you even allowed to post this?" Another critic quipped, "Glad you're able to post nudes on IG, when thousands of other women get deleted daily for posting things that aren't even this naked. Keep up the good work, maybe they will let everyone post nudes now. Oh, it doesn't work that way. Sucks for us I guess."
One user called Instagram out, "@instagram are you guys gonna take this down or flag her account too? Ridiculous when boudoir pages aren't allowed the same opportunity and lose their following/account over posting THE SAME THING. [middle finger emoji] stay equal and across the board celebrity or not, this is ridiculous." Another added, "Nudity not allowed on ign and bad timing when Ukraine just got bombed by Russia and Russia threatening US or don't you give a f**k."
Meanwhile, others noticed that something is odd about Kendall's leg and accused the model of photoshopping her picture. "Anyone notice her leg In the third photo????" one person asked, prompting another user to reply, "Right it's so f**king damn long [laughing on the floor emoji]." "I was searching for someone else who saw it! Too much edit wtf?! They made her leg like twice the length. Looks weird," another chimed in. Another user confirmed, "Yes it looks weird. Why do these girls post pics especially nude ones when they are so doctored up? Either the pics look weird or it doesn't look like them. Why post fake pics?"
A few months before Kendall's monochrome nude photoshoot, Instagram took down Madonna's nipple-baring photos. At that time, the 'Material Girl' hitmaker lashed out at the photo-sharing app over its stance on female nudity. The 63-year-old reshared saucy pics and wrote, "I'm reposting photographs, Instagram took down without warning or notification. The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed."
The singer went on to say that it's "still astounding" to her that "we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman's body to be shown except a nipple." She continued, "As if that is the only part of a woman's anatomy that could be sexualized. The nipple that nourishes the baby! Can't a mans nipple be experienced as erotic??!!" The 'Vogue' singer went on to ask, "What about a woman's a** which is never censored anywhere?"
