When Rihanna posted her Lui Magazine cover images, in which she happened to be topless, Instagram wasn’t having it. Within 60 minutes, the photo-sharing monolith had taken them down, warning the pop music sensation that nipples went against their no-nudity policy and that if she violated the rules again, she would have her account taken away.
