Ops I didn’t know I couldn’t talk about Lee
The message is informing Madonna that her account on Instagram has violated the site’s Community Guidelines, which require, among other rules, to refrain from sharing photos that aren’t yours, showing nudity or mature content.
The news was reprised by several media outlets today, starting speculations about which one of the dozen of images posted on the net at the time could be named as the culprit. The media noticed that Madonna posted at least two photos of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, who is one of her biggest inspirations, and took yet another chance to throw a fit by underling that Madonna’s “cleave or ample portions of her buttocks”, could be the reason behind the warning. Also nicely, they stressed out how Kahlo’s name was mispelled in one of Madonna’s recent post, which to us is clearly a reason for banning her from the cyber universe.
Besides, it would be quite clever to think that if a user violates Instagram’s rules by posting an image, it is more than likely that you won’t find that one image on the photo sharing website’s because, well, it violates their rules and would have been taken down by the site.
A couple of days ago a portrait that Man Ray shot of his assistant, lover and muse Elizabeth “Lee” Miller in the ’30s briefly appeared on Madonna’s Instagram but was quickly removed.
The exquisite image was showing Lee’s torso and breast in Ray’s signature photographic style, and while it has not been confirmed if this is the real reason behing the warning Madonna has received, we really hope that those who dare to share a picture of Michelangelo’s naked David or the Venus de Milo will not experience Instagram’s wrath over the obscenity of art.
As per Instagram’s guidelines, continuing to violate them may result in a disabled account, or discontinued access to the site, without warning.
