She captioned the photo with: “Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better #kremlin”The picture was swiftly deleted by Instagram, which has been criticised over the past few months for its disproportionate rulings on female nudity. Earlier this week, Facebook was forced to reinstate a picture of a mother breastfeeding after deleting it because it “breached nudity rules”.
Handler then shared a screen grab of the message she’d received by the social media channel, informing her that her original post had been removed.“If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? The mother of two posted the image on a pro-breastfeeding community page.
But I'm sure now that I've said that, someone's gonna see me face down in the lobby of a hotel," she says, sitting in her bedroom months after her trek to South America.
