#Curvy Is Back: Instagram Unblock Hashtag After Removing It Due To ‘Inappropriate Content’
Last week, positive body image campaigners were up in arms after it was revealed that Instagram had blocked the hashtag #Curvy.
The hashtag had been disabled along with others including #Thinspo, which glorifies emaciated frames in a bid to inspire others to lose weight, because it collated “inappropriate content” such as pornography.
Now, after a tidal wave of complaints, Instagram has backtracked and have reinstated the hashtag.
“We want people to be able to express themselves, and hashtags are a great way to do that,” a spokesperson for Instagram said in a statement.
