Chelsea Handler freed the nipple in this funny meme and Instagram quickly yanked it down.

The comedienne posted an uncensored split shot of herself topless on a horse next to Vladimir Putin's shirtless horseback pic that originally went viral.

Just about 20 mintues later, Instagram pulled it down from their app.

Chelsea then shared a screenshot of the deletion notice and this gem of a caption:

If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?

Not to be deterred by Insta's no (female) nipples policy, she promptly posted it to Twitter, writing: "Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to show I have a better body than Putin."

It's not the first time the app has censored celebrities. They deleted a bunch of Rihanna's racy snaps before she eventually quit the app and took it to Twitter.

We think Chelsea's photo was hilarious and that Instagram is being hypocritical. What's your take?
