MILEY CYRUS JUST HEROICALLY MANAGED TO #FREETHENIPPLE ON INSTAGRAM
She did it, folks! Miley Cyrus finally got her nipples on Instagram without getting reported. Cue applause.
Since Instagram and Facebook prohibit “graphic content,” Miley’s efforts to expose her nipples (and other tidbits) to the internet have been unsuccessful…until now.
Miley Cyrus has a big win to celebrate: Cyrus finally avoided getting reported for posting her nipples on Instagram. Either the #FreeTheNipple movement is working, or the trolls have called it quits, because Cyrus has felt the wrath of the Instagods several times in the past for her “innappropriate” photo posts. Covered in glitter and wearing star-shaped pasties, Cyrus came out unscathed in a recent post unlike in the past when Instagrammers didn’t taken too kindly to her “liberating” images.
In the past, Cyrus has even addressed her issues with Instagram’s policy multiple times on the platform because it’s something she’s passionate about. The pop star has been so adamant about letting her nipples reign free that she once even went on Jimmy Kimmel Live in pasties to prove that showing some nip isn’t really that big of a deal.

In a recent Instagram post, Miley poses poolside with a cigarette/blunt in her mouth, middle finger up (obviously), topless in front of a reflective ball, with the reflection of her nipples on full display for the masses to see. Look, there they are! Finally we meet.
Kudos to her for thinking outside the box, though. She realized her nipples were like the eyes of a basilisk and weren’t safe for direct eye contact, so she posted the reflection of her nips. Still a little dangerous, but it didn’t get her reported. Smart!
Back in 2014, Miley posted a picture showing off one boob, but it was reported and deleted a.s.a.p., which is why she’s an active supporter of the #FreeTheNipple campaign.
In fact, she’s so adamant about freeing the nipple that she wore pasties instead of a shirt on Jimmy Kimmel Live in August, and talked openly about why nipples shouldn’t be censored on women.
Other famous faces that angered the Instagram Gods with their nipples are Chrissy Teigen, Rihanna (her entire account was deleted), Chelsea Handler, and Scout Willis, among others.

While Cyrus has definitely gained a ton of attention for her racy images, she isn’t the only star to come under scrutiny for her revealing Instagram photos: Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen and Scout Willis also felt the wrath of Instagram as the social media platform deemed their attempts to #FreeTheNipple unacceptable. Rihanna even lost her account privileges for a while because of her risqué posts.
A hearty congratulations on finally freeing your nipples, Miley.

A big step for Cyrus and an even bigger step for (wo)mankind.
