The poster shows a lactating nipple, and was removed “for breaking our rules against nudity”
“We do, however, make exceptions to allow nudity in certain circumstances, which includes when there’s clear artistic context. We’ve therefore restored posts sharing the Almodóvar movie poster to Instagram, and we’re really sorry for any confusion caused,”
The poster’s Spanish designer had questioned whether the poster would have trouble on social networks but stayed true to his vision after receiving the personal backing of Almodóvar.
“This is probably the first image I saw when I was born. A company like Instagram tells me my work is dangerous, that people shouldn’t see it, that it’s pornographic. How many people are they telling that their body is bad, that their body is dangerous? They say their technology can’t differentiate the context. I don’t care. Change your technology then,”
