Scout Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, has stripped down to protest against photo-sharing website Instagram's no nudity policy.

The 22-year-old took to the streets of New York City in just a floral skirt to show off her objection to the site's policy of banning female nudity in any context, reported Ace Showbiz.

In a post on Twitter, she wrote, "Legal in NYC but not on Instagram. What Instagram won't let you see," she captioned a photo of her shopping for flowers wearing only a skirt and a pair of shoes.

She posted another daring photo of her walking down the street.

"My comfort with my body should not be dictated by how others perceive me. However, I don't wish to force this view on anyone. If you don't like what you see, simply unfollow me," she added.

Instagram has responded to Scout's movement, saying they love that people express themselves artistically and capture important moments in their lives via their site. However, they insist that all forms of nudity are prohibited on Instagram because they made the rules based on "patterns of behaviour" of the audience.

Scout's Instagram account has been removed, but she is thinking of starting a new account.

"Thinking of starting a new Instagram account as an experiment. Only beautiful, artistic nudes. And let's see how long till I get kicked off," she wrote.
