Scout Willis topless: Actress walks NYC to protest Instagram nudity ban

Scout Willis is best known as an actress in movies such as "Moonrise Kingdom." On Wednesday, Gossip Cop shared a photo of her walking around New York City topless, but there is a reason for her madness. She has her top off because it is okay in NYC to walk around this way but Instagram is not allowing it and she is not happy.

She used the hashtag #freethenipple in her photos. Instagram is now not allowing any nudity at all including when it is even in the context of women sharing their battles against breast cancer. She doesn't agree with it and Scout is taking a stand. She wants women to be able to express themselves.

Scout shared these photos on Twitter but of course not Instagram. Along with it she posted, "My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me. However, I don’t wish to force this view on anyone. If you don’t like what you see, simply unfollow me." She obviously doesn't care if anyone sees her that way and wants to prove a point.

It is totally legal for Scout Willis to walk around New York City naked. There is no reason that she can't do that but in other areas of the United States it would not be allowed. She has been talking to fans on Twitter. She did share that she has not heard back from Instagram since she started this big protest. It is unknown if they will ever contact her to give their opinion on what she is doing.

These two pictures show Scout walking through NYC. One is of her walking and the other one has her stopping to smell the flowers. Hopefully she will get her point across but only time will tell on this one. Scout Willis has not shared if she plans to continue walking around topless but most of her followers wouldn't mind if she does. Her mom Demi Moore and dad Bruce Willis are still quiet on the matter.
