(Scroll down for video) Instagram apologized for removing a butt selfie of an overweight woman after claiming it violated their nudity policy.

Meghan Tonjes, 29, of Los Angeles, California, was furious when her butt selfie had been taken down from Instagram. She believed that it was done because of her body size.

Tonjes was about 320 pounds at her heaviest and she had been recording her weight loss when she posted the selfie of her backside.

Many people including Kim Kardashian, and Jen Selter, posted similar butt selfies. However, their photos were not removed.

Tonjes took to social media and posted a video on YouTube, with her grievances about the butt selfie being removed. Instagram apologized for the incident and restored the butt selfie.
