Elle Johnson was banned from the picture-sharing social media app due to a “violation of community guidelines”.
A GLAMOUR model who was dubbed “too sexy for Instagram” has compared having her account shut down to Doctor David Dao’s removal from United Airlines.
Elle Johnson, from Park City, Utah, was banned from the picture-sharing social media app due to a “violation of community guidelines”.
The blonde, who shares provocative underwear shots with her fans, took to Twitter on Tuesday and wrote: “Booted off #Instagram again! They treat models like #United treated Dr. Dao. Not the physical abuse part-the random get off the plane part!”
Dr Dao was filmed by fellow passengers being dragged off an overbooked flight with blood pouring from his mouth in April.
Elle first had her account blocked in January after users reported it to moderators, and shut down for a second time earlier this month.
One publication, EveryJoe, dubbed her “too sexy” for Instagram while Maxim called her “too hot to handle”.
Elle’s account, which has 418,000 followers, was reactivated on Friday following an investigation.
She is dumbfounded as to why her account was disabled and says she complies with the site’s guidelines, which doesn’t allow nudity.
Elle says her racy pictures are a lot tamer than other she has seen on the website.
She told MailOnline: “There are a lot of Instagram models out there. I don’t think I’m on the high end of the racy scale.
“But I’m certainly not on the low end. If the racy scale is the Spinal Tap 1-11, I’m probably around an 8.”
The Sun Online has contacted Instagram for a comment.
The Instagram guidelines state: “Instagram is a reflection of our diverse community of cultures, ages, and beliefs.
“We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the different points of view that create a safe and open environment for everyone.”
It adds: “We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram.
“This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.
“It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed.
“Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.”
Cara Delevingne waged war on Instagramin 2016 after they banned her from showing her boobs.
