Is this really fair?

According to E! News, a 19-year-old Ohio resident named Samm Newman recently had her Instagram account deleted.

Why? Samm thinks it’s due to the fact that she tends to post photos that show off her size-24 figure; something she says that other women of different body types do all the time!

SEE THE PHOTOS HERE.

My Instagram, it was a safe place because when I was there, I could share anything,” Newman told a local news station.

Newman is part of a community of women who take selfies in their underwear and bikinis to show that they’re not ashamed of their bodies, but in fact, that they embrace their full figures and love themselves.

“Fat is not a bad word,” Sam explained. “How confident can you be if you keep censoring yourself because people don’t want to look at you? I didn’t find [the underwear] or the bra at all inappropriate. They covered me entirely and I’ve seen pictures like that all over Instagram.”

Instagram has allegedly stated that her account’s termination came from an error in the system and Samm’s page is back up again, but currently, there are no photos.

Really? Celebrities like Miley Cyrus can post a half naked pic, but Samm can’t? What do you think about this?
