Kim Kardashian Might Quit Instagram Over New Policy: 'I Don't Think It's Fair'

Kim Kardashian may have no problem showing off her bikini body to millions of users on Instagram, but the reality TV starlet isn’t too happy about the company’s recent policy changes.

On Tuesday, the sultry celebrity took to Twitter to express her feelings about the photo-sharing site’s new terms of service.

"I really loved Instagram :-( I need to review this new policy," she wrote. "I don't think its fair."

Earlier in the week, Instagram announced a new policy that would allow the company to sell user photos to outside third parties without having to get permission from or give compensation to the user.


The news was met with outrage, but Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom later sent an apology for the "confusing" language and clarified that the company has no intentions of selling photos.

"Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed,” he wrote. “We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period."


"I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights," Systrom continued.

Kardashian is Instagram's No.1 user with approximately 5,726,343 followers, and should she opt to shut down her account, the company would take a huge hit.


Sister Khloe, also a huge fan of the photo-sharing site, tweeted her own disappointment Tuesday.

"Wow…I just read over Instagram's new policy...so sad, looks like I might be deleting my instagram after Jan 16. I hope something changes," she wrote.
