Pop sensation Cody Simpson has become the latest celebrity to upset censors at Instagram - they have pulled a nude photo of the singer from their site. On Monday (19May14), the 17 year old posted a naked picture of himself, taken from behind, while checking out an ocean view from his hotel balcony in Miami, Florida.

The Surfboard singer added the caption: "Free. throwback to Sunday morning on the coast after a big one (big night out). surfed out too. how bout that tan (sic). taken by bae." Bae, short for 'baby', refers to his ex-girlfriend, model Gigi Hadid.

However, Instagram bosses promptly pulled the naughty shot down because it violates their no nudity rules. Simpson didn't seem too bothered by the deleted snap - he tweeted: "Looks like Instagram didn't like my a**."

Last month (Apr14), Rihanna came under fire from Instagram bosses after she shared risque pictures from her sexy spread in French men's magazine Lui, in which she was snapped exposing her bare breasts and nipple piercing on the site. She was subsequently forced to remove the saucy photographs.
