Porn stars, artists, and sex workers protest at Instagram's HQ in opposition of the company's rules about nudity

Sex workers, artists, and porn stars planned to protest outside of Instagram's Menlo Park HQ and New York City office on Wednesday in opposition of what they say are often wrongful deletions of their Instagram profiles.
The bi-coastal instaSTRIKE was organized by the Adult Performers Actors Guild, which says it intends to spearhead a class-action lawsuit accusing Instagram of "blatant discrimination of legal workers across the world."
Instagram announced in March that it would be putting a blurred screen over sensitive content - posts that were reported by the community or flagged by Instagram's team but were not found to have violated guidelines.
On Wednesday afternoon, the APAG tweeted out that "collective bargaining has won," the union will have "an ongoing relationship with the Instagram/Facebook team," and "They said they would go through and reactivate!"
