If you feel like you haven’t seen enough of Chelsea Handler’s nipples this year, then we’ve got an early New Year’s present for you: The comedian (and her nipples) are continuing to fight the good fight against Instagram censorship… by posting yet another topless photo on Instagram.

On Friday, Handler posted the photo on Instagram, in which she posed topless and pretended to look for her dog Chunk.


After Instagram deleted the photo for violating its terms of service, Handler posted yet another topless image on Twitter, with the message: “Finding Chunk. Instagram had him!”

Handler’s been taking a stand against Instagram’s anti-female-nudity policy since October, when she posted a snapshot of herself mocking Vladimir Putin’s famous shirtless horseback-riding photo.

A few weeks later, Handler posted a nude photo mimicking Kim Kardashian’s famous #BreakTheInternet photo shoot, which she superimposed next to the original photo of herself topless on a horse. Instagram allowed users to post the photo of Kardashian, while Handler’s version was removed. 

“Just so I’m clear, Instagram… it’s ok to use nudity to sexualize yourself on your site, but not to make a joke?” wrote handler. “I’m just so confused.”

There’s also a Free The Nipple movie, directed by Cyrus’s friend Lina Esco, which was released in select theaters earlier this month.
