Chrissy's Still Fighting To #FreeTheNipple

by Maggie Malach

Never one to shy away from voicing her opinion on social media, Chrissy Teigen recently made headlines for posting a topless photo on Instagram, and when the site removed it, she just re-posted it. Several times. However, this isn't the first time she's been open about posting nude or partially nude photos of herself — and it sounds like it won't be the last.

TMZ caught up with the model, who explained, "Oh, I love Instagram. I was just f--king with them." She stands by her topless photo, which is part of an upcoming W magazine editorial, and says she's not done posting the provocative photos.

"When the actual W magazine comes out, I will continue to post them, yes," Teigen told TMZ. "A nipple is a nipple is a nipple. It's not a big deal."

However, the model notes that she sees where Instagram's policy is coming from, adding, "I do understand it, I really do. It's a weird subject. I think if it's, you know, a little pornographic, something I wouldn't want my nephews to see, then that's a little weird." In Instagram's defense, the site recently updated its nudity policy to permit breast-feeding photos and pictures of mastectomy scars.

Teigen was first flagged by Instagram back in 2013, when she celebrated reaching 200,000 Twitter followers by posting a nude photo of herself. In the image, the model stood naked while getting a spray-tan. Instagram removed her photo and her account was suspended.

The 29-year-old addressed the drama on Twitter:

The battle doesn't appear to be over yet. On June 29, she told fans, "the nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back."
