Social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram prohibit any and all "graphic content" that pictures a woman's areola. Chelsea Handler, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Scout Willis have each received backlash from Instagram for sharing photos of their chests exposed. Willow Smith also had a post removed because it pictured her wearing a shirt with a pair of women's nipples printed on it, though the shirt itself was fairly conservative in cut. Some have even gone so far as to photoshop male nipples onto their pictures posted on Instagram in order to cover their female nipples. This is mostly used to make the comparison between the two and censorship. When explaining the need to remove nudity, Instagram's CEO Kevin Systrom blamed the rating system of Apple's app store.
