A glamour model dubbed "too sexy for Instagram" has likened having her account shut down to Doctor Dao's removal from United Airlines in April.

Elle Johnson, from Park City, Utah, has spoken out after she was banned from the social media site due to a "violation of community guidelines", reports Daily Mail.

The model, who shares sultry photos with her fans, took to Twitter on Tuesday tweeting: "Booted off #Instagram again! They treat models like #United treated Dr. Dao. Not the physical abuse part-the random get off the plane part!"

Elle first had her account blocked in January this year after it was reported to Instagram and since happening a second time in 2017 the outspoken model has drawn in further publicity.

One publication, EveryJoe, dubbed her "too sexy" for the social media site while Maxim referred her as "too hot to handle".

After the supposed violation was investigated Elle's account, which boasts 418,000 followers, was reactivated on Friday.

Elle says she has been left bemused as to why her account was disabled as, despite her risqué shots, she complies with the site's guidelines.

Speaking to the MailOnline Elle said: "Instagram's Community Guidelines tell members that they 'don't allow nudity.'

It's weird but the guidelines don't allow only 'some photos of female nipples.' So some nipples are okay and others aren't?"

"The problem is that there is selective enforcement of Instagram's Community Guidelines. Some Instagram posters are clearly off limits. Other aren't. All community members are equal, but some members are more equal than others."

Elle believes that her snaps are a lot tamer than some of those that are permitted on Instagram.

She continued: "There are a lot of Instagram models out there. I don't think I'm on the high end of the racy scale."

"But I'm certainly not on the low end. If the racy scale is the Spinal Tap 1-11, I'm probably around an 8."

MailOnline has contacted Instagram for a comment.

The model has long been a believer in women's rights to express their bodies and began her own campaign "free the cleavage".

Elle spearheaded the movement after a woman was reportedly removed from a Spirited Airlines flight for displaying her cleavage - though the airline has denied the allegations.

Discussing her campaign Elle says: "I felt bad for her. I'm known to show a little cleavage, myself! And the cabin temperature in airplanes is horrible."

"Bottom-line, there is absolutely nothing wrong with cleavage! In fact, cleavage is a good thing."

"It really riles me up when women sit in judgment over other women and I'm always suspicious that that's what's going on!"

The model is now hoping other women to adopt her body empowerment movement.

She added: "As for other women embracing my free the cleavage campaign, they can do what they want.

I just hope whatever choice they make is their own and not guided by some societal pressure. Free societies are the only ones worth being part of."
