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┬ácontends 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.
