The U.K. is no stranger to the trend, but when the U-K.
decides to take a stand on its nudity policies, it doesn’t seem to be doing so out of malice.
The U.L.N.S., a U.B.N.-affiliated group, recently announced that they will no longer allow nude photos of celebrities to be shared on their social media pages.
But not everyone agrees with the move.
On Monday, actress-actress-comedy writer and comedian Lisa Zambetti tweeted that her followers were no longer allowed to share images of herself that feature her with their friends.
While Zambetti is clearly entitled to her own opinion, the UK. government is apparently using the issue as a way to make a political statement.
“The government is using the UGBs ‘public nudity policy’ to push a social media ban that is in direct conflict with its own values,” Zambetti wrote.
“While we will be supporting our local news outlets’ right to free speech and expression, we urge all our followers to refrain from sharing photos that include celebrities that do not reflect our values.”
In response to the UUKs stance, the group tweeted out a list of “top 10 UK celebrities” who “don’t agree with our stance.”
On Tuesday, Zambetti posted a video titled “Why do I have to follow the rules?” in which she criticized the UB’s decision to allow the sharing of images of celebrities without their permission.
“When it comes to sharing images, I’ve got a big problem with that,” Zambette said.
“I’m not a photographer.
I don’t like the idea of it.
I’m not sure I even like the act of it, but I’m still not sure what the problem is.
I’ve just got a lot of empathy for them.
It’s like, why do I even have to watch it?”
While the UBRs “public nudity” policy states that anyone who wants to post nude photos should contact the group and “get their permission first,” Zambett pointed out that she has not yet received a single contact from anyone in the UU.
She added, “If they say, ‘Hey, you’re doing this,’ then great, but they’re not telling me to do it.
So, I’m just going to be left to figure out what to do with my own time.”
The UUK, which has also been known to pull stunts like banning nude pictures of politicians, sports stars, celebrities, and celebrities in general, is not the only country that has taken a stance against nudity on social media.
In June, the United Kingdom banned photographs of former Prime Minister Nick Clegg and his wife, Olivia, from its Twitter account.
However, the UK’s decision was later reversed after a judge ruled that the “inappropriate” photos violated a British privacy law.
The ruling, which the UAK’s Department of Communications called a “mistake,” is not yet known if it will be reinstated in the UK.
In an effort to curb the trend on Twitter , the UBL, the British equivalent of the UBN, has made it easy for fans to report users who violate the policy.
