Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram photo was deleted after it revealed a nipple that broke the social media’s terms of service agreement. The model wasn’t happy about the decision, but she vows that they will return, according to Daily Mail.

Teigen has broken the rules before after becoming a model, a TV personality, an entertaining Twitter user and John Legend’s wife. Now, Chrissy can say she broke the rules on Instagram.

On Monday, she posted the picture of herself that featured one whole nipple. It was deleted because it was so offensive to others.

Chrissy Teigen Instagram photo is from W magazine

Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram photo was from W magazine after she was named one of the sexiest supermodels on social media. Chrissy was joined by Emily Ratajkowski, Joan Smalls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Irina Shayk, Lily Aldridge, Bella Hadid, Anna Ewers, Barbara Palvin and Doutzen Kroes.

Teigen, however, was the only one who didn’t have any need for clothes. Chrissy also laughed off comments after one fan said she ruined her body after having a baby.

“The most uncomfortable I’ve ever been on set was having to model coats. I actually am better in less clothing,” she said in the article.

Teigen joins a list of celebrities who have run afoul of Instagram’s nudity rules. Last year, Chelsea Handler famously continued to post topless pictures to Instagram, specifically calling attention to what she feels is a hypocritical policy that bans depictions of female nipples, but not male.

But Chrissy herself is something of a pioneer in that regard. In 2013, when Teigen passed 200,000 followers on Twitter, she Instagrammed a photo of herself totally nude getting a spray tan.

Since the photo didn’t appear to show any naughty bits, it stayed active for about 12 hours before it was ultimately taken down. Rihanna has experienced similar issues with the popular photo-sharing service.

Chrissy Teigen told Instagram that they should change their policies. The nature of the photo isn’t bad, since it was done for a magazine, but there are people who found it offensive.
