Instagram has a vendetta against women's nipples and will routinely remove photos for revealing too much of the female form. Recently, however, Instagram got a little too power happy and suspended Susan Moseley's account over a cake, according to Mashable. Because the cake looked like a boob. Whoever mistook this cake for a boob has seen some weird stuff. 

Pastry chef Jenny Moseley baked the cake for Easter, and her mother happily shared the photo with the innocent caption "Jenny’s fabulous Easter Simnel cake — delicious." After Susan's account was flagged and suspended, her daughter Fiona shared the picture of the Easter Simnel cake that, despite being decidedly un-boob-like, landed Susan in trouble.

Jenny also shared a photo of the cake on her Instagram and managed to not get flagged.

Even from this angle, the cake does not look like a boob. But it looks tasty!

Of course, Instagram surely has some sort of algorithm to identify nipples and block the harmless sight from the Internet, so it isn't fair to blame one person with really bad eyesight, even if that's more fun. In truth, it's understandable how a computer program (which must have access to some freaky porn) could mistake the cake's decorations as nipples.

In the end and after outrage spread, Instagram re-activated Susan Moseley's account. Operation #FreeTheSimnel was a rousing success. Now to continue the work of freeing actual nipples.
