Chelsea Handler found a creative way to fight against Vladimir Putin and Instagram recently with a single picture – of her riding horseback topless!
“Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better. #kremlin”
As you can see from the photo, Chelsea Handler was mocking the same pose that Vladimir Putin used in a recent shirtless photo of himself riding a horse that went viral online recently.
Shortly after the picture was posted, Instagram quickly removed it due to a violation of the social media platform’s Community Guidelines.
Chelsea Handler did not allow that to stop her, though. She also took a screenshot of the original, uncensored Instagram post that was removed by Instagram and posted it as a tweet on her official Twitter page instead.
According to its caption, Handler believed that Instagram removing her picture was “sexist” but she also found a clever way to sneak in a funny punchline.
“Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to show I have a better body than Putin.”
Handler also took a screenshot of the note that Instagram sent her in regards to her violation of the Community Guidelines and turned that into a new post with its own thought-provoking caption.
“If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it’s ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?”
Chelsea Handler then tried to post the same picture again to her Instagram post. This time around, Handler states in her caption that removing the picture again would be just like “saying Vladimir Putin has more 1st amendment rights.”
If instagram takes this down again, you’re saying Vladimir Putin Has more 1st amendment rights than… http://t.co/oOeKWT1vMk

As you probably noticed from the dead Instagram link, the social media platform did not hesitate to remove Chelsea Handler’s topless picture yet again. Early Friday morning, Chelsea Handler took another jab at Instagram and the controversial issue that was created by her topless picture by posting a picture of her dogs. While the actual dog picture is not very impressive, the point that Chelsea Handler tried to drive home was featured in its caption.
This is not the first time that Chelsea Handler has made headlines by exposing herself in an online picture that went viral. To promote a Sirius XM interview with Dave Grohl, Chelsea posted a picture of herself on Twitter that showed her on vacation with one of her breasts exposed for the picture.
Back in August, the 39-year old comedian and actress posted a nude photo of herself on Instagram where she was inside of a locker room with a sultry glance, wearing nothing but a pair of panties with a caption stating “I’m a Kardashian.”
As of today, that picture has not been removed from Chelsea’s Instagram page here, which goes back to her comment about women not being able to show their nipples in an “acceptable” picture that does not get removed.
What do you think? Does Chelsea Handler have a solid argument? Was the removal of her horseback picture a violation of her First Amendment rights?
