Scout Willis has strolled topless down New York City streets protesting Instagram's no nudity policy.

The 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's took to the streets of Manhattan dressed only in a floral skirt on Wednesday to show off her objection to the social networking site's policy of banning female nudity in any context.

Using the hashtag #FreeTheNipple, Willis posted the Instagram shots on Twitter.

"Legal in NYC but not on @instagram," she tweeted.

"What @instagram won't let you see #FreeTheNipple."

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

Instagram says it allows breastfeeding pictures but "photos that show a fully exposed breast where the child isn't actively engaged in nursing aren't following our Community Guidelines".

Under its terms of use, Instagram tells users: "You may not post violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content via the Service."

But Willis has had a wave of support online for her efforts:
