About 100 people have stripped naked in front of Facebook's New York headquarters as part of a protest against what they view as censorship regarding Facebook and Instagram's policies around artistic nudity.
CNN reports the demonstrators lay naked on the road, each with large images of male nipples covering their private parts.
The protest ‑‑ called #wethenipple ‑‑ was organized and photographed by internationally‑renowned American artist Spencer Tunick and the National Coalition Against Censorship.
