Top 7 Celeb Pictures That Got Banned From Instagram

When you post a picture on the internet, it stays there forever one way or another. This is something all people must realize, however there have been many who wish to push the limits when it comes to nude shots.

As most of us know, Twitter is a land filled with plenty of nudity, but celebrities have been known to stretch these creative endeavours over to Instagram. Some of them have gotten away with it, but for this particular list, we’ll be looking at the ones who didn’t.


Drake Bell

In 2018, Drake posted his own nude picture. Nevertheless Instagram wasn’t happy about it and took it down.

Fast forward to a year later, Drake sat down with his Drake & Josh co-star, Josh Peck, to film a video. According to Drake, he claimed the picture was taken down because Instagram called the picture “obscene.”

Apparently, after the picture was posted, he received a notice from Instagram about the picture. He couldn’t tell the details because as soon as they used the term ‘obscene’ he started laughing.

A little egotistical perhaps?




In 2014, RiRi posted her cover on Lui magazine. Apparently that shot showed off a little bit of nipple which was enough for Instagram to censor it. You can still find this picture today on Twitter, along with plenty of other naked pics from that magazine.

The removal process entailed Rihanna getting an email from Instagram stating to censor or remove the image or risk having her account removed entirely. In response, she took a shot of a meme and captioned it as “:(“.



Kendall Jenner

In 2014, Kendall took a shot of herself walking down the runway of Marc Jacobs’ New York Fashion Week show. In the shot, her pants were alright, but the issue was more with her shirt.

It was a sheer top, making it clear one can see her breasts through the top.

When Khloé and Kim Kardashian shared the shot, Instagram deleted them. Once they realized that, Kim tweeted her frustration.



Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is one of the odd souls that is lucky when it comes to pictures that violate Instagrams policies, but nothing comes of it. There are two instances where her pictures violate these terms and should be removed, but haven’t at the time of writing this.

Why these make the list is because Miley Cyrus herself mentions in the posts that they will be removed.

The first instance was in 2019 where her top was see-through, so you could clearly see her nipples. When she posted it originally the caption included “PS this is getting removed soon!”

But when this picture hasn’t been removed, she added to that caption “PPS I f**king love you instagram! Thank you for stanning the Nips! Respect.”


The second instance was in February 2020 where she’s taken a series of pictures. The first two are fine, but the third clearly shows plenty of side-boob and nipple too. The shots were taken at yet another Marc Jacob New York Fashion Week even.

In the post, Miley Cyrus captions “Swipe right. But hurry. Instagram will definitely be removing this post soon.” Again, Instagram has yet to remove it.



Jason Derulo

In 2019, Jason, one morning posted a picture on his instagram. As he told those on Strahan, Sara, and Keke, he thought the picture was innocent enough.

It’s a sexy underwear shot, Jason thought he looked good in and didn’t think much of it. By that afternoon, this picture was the most-liked photo he had around.

But even that accolade didn’t stop Instagram from taking this picture down. The issue? Well we know now that Derulo packs a lot down there.




The last on our list is Madonna and this goes back to 2013. The only thing that remains of this shot is a screenshot of the message Instagram sends to those who violate their guidelines.

As for the picture in question, it’s hard to say what pictures were removed. However, considering the fact the screenshot mentioned “mature” it’s probably one of her drinking martini and showing some cleavage.
