A 20-year-old woman was outraged to discover that her Instagram account had been deleted after she posted a photo of her stretch marks.
Hannah Moore, who gave birth to twin girls 10 months ago, got a message saying her page had been shut down due to "nudity" violations.

She voiced her frustrations on Facebook: "earlier today i posted this on instagram, explaining that ive never felt comfortable with my size but im happy with the way i am, that people love me no matter what size i am. Someone reported it causing my account to close down, they must have felt sick looking at it. just what to say NEVER let someone bring your confidence down, NEVER let someone judge you by your size, because it shouldnt matter, youre still beautiful! (sic)"
Moore said that she hopes Instagram is "more careful" in the future with which accounts they choose to deactivate. “I want not just myself but other women, thin or bigger, to love themselves and love their size, because everyone is beautiful," she told SWNS.

A spokesperson for Instagram has since called the removal of Moore's page a "technical mistake," which comes less than a month after the social networking site was bashed for taking down an image of a fully-clothed woman menstruating.
