Rihanna, without her racy Instagram photos would be, well, not Rihanna. However, her recent photo almost got her banned from the social media website. Posing for French magazine Lui, the singer was topless.

Instagram wasn't amused. Within an hour of the photo being up on her account, Rihanna got called out for violating the website's rules against nudity. Along with the having photo taken down, she was also threatened with having her account shut down permanently if she ever posted such photos again.

Like that was going to stop RiRi, though. She took to Twitter to share the photos instead, changed her Twitter avatar to an illustration of the Lui cover, and even made a meme retort on Instagram. We had to stifle a giggle – but ahem – bad gal, RiRi.
