On Tuesday, the singer shared a notice he received from the social media platform which claimed the photo–which showcased a scantily clad Derulo and his noticeably large package–violated community guidelines on nudity and sexual activity.
“Fuk u mean?” he captioned the new post. I have underwear on… I can’t help my size..”
#bringbackAnaconda, he commented under the post.
According to E! News, the original photo of Derulo’s package was taken on a vacation in Bali and posted to the app last month. In the image, the singer is seen walking through steam wearing only black underwear. His—er—endowment is noticeably visible, and Derulo jokingly called his penis an “anaconda” in the comments.
“Don’t lie… did you Zoom?” he teased in the comments.
Derulo isn’t taking too kindly to the photo’s deletion.
“Y’all ain’t gonna believe this,” he said in a selfie video posted to his Instagram story. “Instagram took down my Bali pic! They took down my Bali pic!”

“Hey, listen, all these girls showing their ass and all kinds of crazy shit, and I have underwear on in Bali, and they took my pic down,” he continued. “It’s discrimination. Like, I understand, I can’t help my size, but you can’t take down my pic.”
A spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, told People that Derulo’s post violated the site’s guidelines by featuring “aroused genitalia.” Instagram also pulls posts that include sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks, the spokesperson said.
