This is a picture of an Easter Simnel cake, a cake that sounds delicious and is very common in the UK around this time of year. They usually look about like this one but Instagram found it just too risque and suspended the account of the woman who posted it.

Her daughter brought this to wider attention on social media after Instagram refused to restore the account saying that, "We understand that people have different ideas about what’s okay to share on Instagram, but to keep Instagram safe, we require everyone to follow our guidelines." according to Mashable

Fortunately, Instagram decided to take a second look into the matter and, presumably when an actual human laid eyes on the cake for the first time in this process, they restored the account.

This creepy clown was popping up all over Norwich, UK around Halloween. Due to the ominous poster cropping up in places where it could stare at children and give them nightmares, it was banned. 

There are some who think the censorship is ridiculous but parents and people who hate clowns were happy to see it go. 

Here's a preview of next year's poster:

Free the painted n*pple!

Pablo Picasso’s “Women of Algiers (Version O)” was making headlines this week when it sold at Christie’s for a whopping $179 million, making it the most expensive painting ever purchased at an auction.

Fox5 in New York also reported on the news, and one of their producers decided to blur out all the b00bs in the image, infuriating many people online.



Jerry Saltz, senior art critic for New York Magazine, pointed out the unnecessary censorship on Twitter Wednesday.


And others also criticized the station for bizarre editorial decision.



The hosts of Fox 5’s morning show “Good Day New York” did a segment on the controversy Thursday, in which they showed the uncensored piece, calling themselves “art connoisseurs” and blasting their coworkers who made the unfortunate decision.

“We get it,” said Greg Kelly. “It was ridiculous!”
