Like Rihanna, Scout LaRue Willis took to Twitter to voice her protest about Instagram's community guidelines that doesn't tolerate nudity (and nipples). What's different from Rihanna's social media snapback is that in addition to a rather loud Twitterstorm, Scout actually walked around New York City topless.

Twitter, of course, remains accepting of partial nudity. Instagram had removed one of Scout's guideline-violating posts, driving her to go on a #freethenipple crusade on Twitter and changing her Instagram name to Scout (Areola) Willis – what else? – before Instagram finally shut her account down altogether.

Scout did the next most rebellious thing with her Twitter avatar, the first being changing it to a nude photo of herself: she used a photo of Rihanna's topless Lui magazine cover.

We have to admit, despite walking the talk in the most blatant way possible, Scout doesn't make blind arguments. She posted on Twitter, "Why does Instagram allow photos of heroin being used but deletes a photo of a print of some smoke shows without tops on?" She's even thinking of starting a new Instagram account to post "only beautiful, artistic nudes". See how long it takes before she gets kicked out again.
