When it comes to Rihanna and her nudity, Instagram is playing no games.
According to sources, the photo-sharing app threatened to shut down RiRi’s account after she posted topless snaps from her recent photo shoot with Lui magazine. The pics, which violated IG’s rules against nudity, were removed within an hour of posting.
“Our Instagram sources tell us Rihanna got an email that basically warned her … keep your clothes on or risk having your account permanently shut down,” TMZ reports.
But, in typical RiRi fashion, the threat didn’t phase her at all. The Bajan beauty simply headed to Twitter to share the banned shots of her exposed breasts. She also took to Instagram to poke a little fun at the whole situation and posted a few memes.
