Instagram Bans Curvy as search term…because it was used for porn

Instagram Bans Curvy

Social media giant Instagram has blocked all searches for the term “curvy” or #curvy. According to Mashable, a representative from Instagram was quoted as saying, “I can confirm that we did block the hashtag #curvy. It was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity.” “Please note that the block has nothing to do with the term ‘curvy’ itself.

Plus Models Today contends that it has everything to do with the term curvy. There are thousands of legitimate sites that use the term “curvy” in an appropriate manner. We feel that they should not be punished because some porn is being found under #curvy. Instagram may be better served by targeting those who are using #curvy in a manner that is contrary to their nudity guidelines.

We hope Instagram will reconsider its ban on #curvy.

She has represented top brands in the U.S, Canada, and throughout Europe. Recently Justine and several other models were featured in a campaign by Lane Bryant labeled #ImNoAngel. It was in response to Victoria’s Secret’s “The Perfect Body” ads. The #ImNoAngel campaign featured Lane Bryant’s Cacique plus size lingerie collection.

One goal of the campaign is to help re-define the concept that beauty comes in only one size.  It appears to be working as Victoria’s Secret changed its’ campaign to “A Body for Every Body”. More importantly however the #ImNoAngel campaign is helping redefine the public’s perception of beauty and helps women and girls feel comfortable and confident in their looks.
