Newman was upset about it because she felt like Instagram was a safe place where she could feel comfortable with her body.

She told localreportersthat there was a double standard on Instagram. She didnt understand why her underwear selfie was deleted when thinner girls could post even racier photos.

After Newmans story started making the rounds, Instagram issued a statement about the whole incident, explaining that it was actually a mistake.

When our team processes reports from other members of the Instagram community, we occasionally make a mistake. In this case, we wrongly removed content and worked to rectify the error as soon as we were notified. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Newmans account is back, even though she hasnt posted any photos just yet.

Instagram has since reinstated it and apologized. Is she too fat for selfies? NSFWish

    you know I`m not going to look into this, but it really looks like she`s kissing a co-worker at a grocery store in that last picture.

    She looks like she`s probably a nice enough person. But why ...? I know it`s a thing people do and it`s not for me to judge, but why?

    But as it is a thing then it`s pretty brutal to delete her for being fat. If that`s what happened.

    1)Don`t post racy photos of yourself online. It reeks of desperation.
    2)Instagram should be ashamed of itself for discrimination.

    I know why her account was deleted, when normal sized girls post the same type of picture and don`t get deleted.

    It`s simple.

    She`s showing too much skin!

    She looks Older than 19, but thats neither here nor there.
    The point is what is this self ego `Im worthy and need to be looked at in near nakkidness` thing?
    which all and sundry think is a fast track to internet stardom.
    Although she has hit IAB so I guess she has realized her dream, unfortunately its IAB so
    the dream will be a fecking nightmare..
    And dont talk to me about feckin `Selfies` back in the day it was a bedroom on your own moment looking at some rudey poo mag..ahem

    honestly, i would have flagged that as inappropriate if I came across it. She is disgusting and no one should have to see that.

    No one wants to see a picture of sick person, or of an injury, or of anything else that is gross. A fat person is gross. plain and simple. There are people who may not agree with that, but then again there are people who enjoy gore as well.

    We need to stop promoting the idea that being fat is ok. It`s not.

    she`s fat, so the hell what? if you don`t think she`s attractive, then don`t look at her. but don`t put her down, ever more, because she`s trying to establish some semblance of self-worth in this horribly judgmental world.

    no, i don`t think its appropriate to post pics of yourself in your underwear. but that goes for EVERYONE, fat, skinny, civilian, celeb, male, female, black, white, red, yellow, purple, etc. i think its tacky and diminishes one`s dignity, but that`s just an old woman`s opinion.

    but if that`s what she wants to do, then that`s her decision, not mine. and the most i`m willing to judge her on is her lack of judgement, not her body type.

    slut etta has a problem with women posing in their underwear. hahaha.

    anyways, her underwear isnt the problem, she could be in a bathing suit. its the disgusting body that is being shown.

    people should dress/pose for the body they have, not the one that they want

    @skullgrin`
    You`re acting like a child and slut etta is right: if she wants to post those pictures she should go right ahead and do it. They`re not pornographic so they probably don`t go against Instacrap`s policies. If you don`t want to see them, don`t fckuking look. How much thought does that take?
    And, by the way, slut etta didn`t say she "has a problem with women posing in their underwear". She feels that it`s tacky and undignified for anyone.
    Personally, I don`t have a problem with that. I`m just sick of seeing all the selfies from all the conceited a-holes out there.

    Kudos to a fit girl for posting a racy selfie, kudos to a fat girl for posting a racy selfie. I just don`t know why people can`t see past skin. Obviously the fat girl is either making a point, or she likes herself fat. Either way, her body isn`t my body. Stop seething at the girl... your eyes being offended by the inconvenience of her undesirable figure is just your bigoted sexist brain spewing outdated gender bias to your penis, and pooting out of your mouth in words that you should really keep to yourself... especially in public.
    I`d also keep in mind, if you haven`t gathered, that soon online anonymity will be a thing of the past, and everything you put online never really goes away even if you "delete" it or time passes. Time for you to find a less "documented" form of expression if you want to continue expressing such disgusting opinions.

    Nobody wants to read idiotic posts yet you continue to post. It`s an easy concept, if I don`t like your posts I don`t have to read it. Pretty dam common sense if you think about it.

    You know, for every person here, someone has looked at them and thought, "Man they`re hot", and someone else has thought, "What a bush pig".

    Eye of the beholder and all that. Good for the goose, good for the gander.

    "if you dont want to see it then don`t look" has got to be the most idiotic statement in this post. Things are not so black and white in the real world. When you browse instagram you are not expecting to see something like what she posted. You have a reasonable expectation that things like that will not be on anyone`s instagram ever. Comparing the visualization of my comments to what she posted doesn`t work, as there is a reasonable expectation that someone will make comments like mine on a board like this under a topic such as this one.

    bottom line. the girl was posting obscene photos of herself and they should be deleted. if she was fit they wouldn`t be obscene. The world isn`t fair and not everyone is created equally. If SHE doesn`t like it, she can go on a diet and hit the gym. It really is that simple.

    I think she has a first amendment right to post whatever she wants. Her pictures are not obscene or offensive. She is not displaying anything that couldn`t be seen on TV. She is a real person and is incredibly brave to post those pictures given the bigoted reactions they were likely to create

    Why don`t they delete all those tacky selfies of fish-lipped size 2 bimbos, and all those greased up bros? It`s all tacky, and I question the health of our future generation, when their future mothers and fathers think it appropriate to post tacky photos on the internet, for the whole world to see.

    @an_egg I`m pretty sure that it`s against instagram`s rules to post obscene and offensive photos.

    @broizfam you`re missing the point grandpa. The fact of the matter is that the girl was claiming discrimination when the reality of the situation was that she is so disgusting people were flagging her photos for breaking the rules.
