Social media sites sometimes have a funny way of applying their rules.
We've heard of instances where topless shots from the bar make it through, but a woman breastfeeding her child will be banned immediately. Where stretch mark shots have been seen as inappropriate, but someone's entire behind is deemed perfectly fine.
This time, a nineteen-year-old sharing a body positive message has fallen foul of Instagram's inexplicable rule system, and she's not happy about it.
Morgan Bartley has been on a weight-loss mission, shedding over 50kg in a bid for a healthier, happier life.
Posting a photo of herself in her swimwear to Instagram, Morgan was shocked that days later the post was taken down without her approval.
Thankfully, she managed to repost it a few days later, and had a strong message for haters who found a 'fat girl in a bikini' so offensive.
"Somebody took their time to report this photo and have it deleted. I think it sucks that people express negativity toward something with only positive intentions, BUT that's why we peeps full of love and light make a difference," she wrote.
"Never let worldly pessimism or judgement prevent you from living your life and celebrating what you've done with it. So yeah, I've lost over 110 pounds and I think I look pretty freakin bomb in a bathing suit on the beach, and that's after a lifetime of letting insecurities hold me back from experiencing life. Yes I'll continue to wear a full face of makeup to the beach and yes, I'll continue to be DAMN proud of who I've worked so hard to become."
Morgan uses her Instagram to share her weight-loss journey, positive tips and her healthy eating plan.
