A pregnant fitness star with over 924,000 Instagram followers is speaking out after the social media platform shut down her account.
Brittany Perille Yobe said the site disabled her page after she posted a workout video showing her bare baby bump, which didn't violate any of their guidelines.

Yesss I am Biggg 😳 and Well Aware ✋🏼… but to be honest I truly do not care👊🏻 I have debated sharing this video of my big bare belly in full workout mode because of body shaming comments that I am sure will come 😲. Ultimately, this wasn't a great enough reason to keep me from sharing and empowering women to love their bodies through each stage of their fitness journeys 🙏🏻💪🏼. Six pack or big belly I still hustle 😓😋 I only have around 3 1/2 months left of carrying around this bump 👶🏼 and will do it wearing whatever I want ✌🏻️. Cannot wait to do comparison vids postnatal 👏🏻 *Vid is slightly sped up. Keep in mind my body is positioned in ways that are comfortable for my pregnant body. |LegionAthletics.com| For the supps I took pre-pregnancy.

A message from the app read that her account was turned off over "sexually suggestive" content.
"All I was doing in the video was working out like I’d done in all the other workout videos I have posted for years. There was nothing out of the ordinary in this one besides my bump,” she told Cosmopolitan.com.
“I am certain I am not the only woman who has been shut down for posting pictures and videos of a child growing inside my belly.”
After appealing the ban, Perille Yobe's page was reinstated six days later.
Keep up the good work, girl!
