According to femalefirst.co.uk, the  63-year-old pop icon went on to mention her frequent nude images posted on the app, joking that she was completely dressed at the time and was left "speechless" when the Meta-owned app issued a warning about on-screen nudity warning.

Madonna added, "I've never worn so many clothes in my life. I'm speechless!"

Instagram issued a warning to her and explained that she must "respect" others on the platform and warned her to always "follow the law".

"We want Instagram to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression. Help us foster this community. Post only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Instagram, don't spam people or post nudity," the message from the platform stated.

This, however, is not the first time that Madonna has faced scrutiny from the social media platform. In November 2021, Instagram had taken off Madonna post after one of the photos featured her wearing lingerie, fishnet stockings, and Christian Louboutin heels and an exposed bosom.

Reposting the photos with minor edits she wrote, "I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification….. The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed. It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple!"
