Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' 22-year-old daughter Scout Willis has chosen her battle, and that battle is protesting Instagram's anti-nudity policy while topless on the streets of New York City.
The Hollywood heir posted pics on her Twitter of her strolling the streets of the Big Apple in nothing but a floral skirt, sandals and her handbag. She was without a shirt. Posing topless at a fruit stand, she tweeted: "Legal in NYC but not on @instagram."
She added: "What @instagram won't let you see #FreeTheNipple."
Scout retweeted a number of her supporters but not all of her followers were on board with her topless campaign. In response to those critics, she wrote:
My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me. However, I don't wish to force this view on anyone.— Scout LaRue Willis (@Scout_Willis) May 27, 2014
If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me.— Scout LaRue Willis (@Scout_Willis) May 27, 2014
This protest against Instagram comes after the photo-sharing site took down some of Rihanna's pics this past April. The 26-year-old singer had posted some full-on topless shots from her Lui shoot, but upon being asked to remove them, she shared them on Twitter instead.
Do you think topless posts should be allowed on Instagram?
Off to bed. but the overwhelming amount of love, support and respect that's come my way today has been mind blowing 😚 pic.twitter.com/vompxHCqJZ— Scout LaRue Willis (@Scout_Willis) May 29, 2014
