Amber Heard anathematized Instagram:

Recently, Amber Heard anathematized Instagram for its censorship policies by posting her Aquaman co-star Jason Momoa’s photo on her Instagram. A few days back she posted a picture in a black tuxedo jacket with a partly bare torso. The picture was taken down by Instagram for violation of its censorship policies. The actor photo-shopped her picture of black tuxedo with the face of her Aquaman co-star Jason Momoa and uploaded the picture with a caption, “In honour of IG’s rigorous and equitable Community Guidelines against showing the Female nipple...and since mine enjoyed the brief privilege that’s afforded to my male counterparts…I decided to pay homage by replacing it with a picture that DID meet IG’s strict nudity guidelines and such careful gender policies.” One can view the post on her Instagram account.
