Celebrity hairdresser Alberto Guzman had posted the photo of him and his husband, makeup artist Janeiro Bofill, kissing on their wedding day. He posted the picture in honor of gay pride Sunday, and accompanied it with a variety of equal rights hashtags, including #wearethesame, #nothingwrongwithbeingqueer and #werequeerandwerehere. The photo, however, was apparently flagged as inappropriate; Instagram removed the image from their site. As Guzman explained, I posted this photo of my wedding yesterday and Instagram took it off my album for being inappropriate [sic] and on gay pride of all days. In a display of support for the couple, friends then began reposting the image with the caption, Instagram took down this photo for being inappropriate WTF. Galadriel Masterson, a friend of the couple, outspokenly expressed her outrage over Instagrams reaction. Masterson noted that Guzman and Bofill have been together for 13 years and are legally married for 2 months. This is the kiss that sealed their wedding vows. Vows that under state and federal protection offer them 1500 rights and responsibilities. She continued on to demand an apology for taking this pic down and flagging it as inappropriate, as well as to ask that others continue to repost the picture. Instagram eventually did restore the photo, and apologized for the incident, explaining that they occasionally make a mistake when processing reports from other members of the Instagram community. In this case, an Instagram spokesperson explained, we wrongly removed content and rectified the error as soon as we were notified.
'NY Med' Nurse Fired Over 'Man VS 6 Train' Instagram Post
After Duke posted the picture to Instagram, the nurse received a call at the end of her shift that she was fired from her nursing job at New York Presbyterian Hospital. I got a call at the end of my shift telling me I was being let go after seven years in the ER, the nurse told ABC News . The nurse said she was not being fired for violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act , otherwise known as HIPAA, which protects the privacy of patients. Instead, she was told that her actions were not becoming of a nurse. I was told I was being fired for being insensitive, Duke said. She also added that she had not taken the photo herself, but rather reposted it from one of the doctors who also worked on the emergency. The doctor was not reprimanded. New York Presbyterian did not wish to comment on Dukes firing or the involvement of anyone else on the staff in the incident. Duke says she did nothing wrong in posting the picture. She said that she was only trying to show how nurses see life and death are played out in the hospital on a daily basis.

Selena Gomez Posts a Cryptic Text Message on Instagram?Could the Sender Be Justin Bieber?! | E! Online
All her friends want him out of the picture and just want her to have a relaxing birthday with no trouble and they think he's going to dominate her attention," a source told E! News. "She doesn't seem to care that he spends time with other women and isn't always honest with her. She's hypnotized. Her friends just want her to enjoy herself for her birthday, but if Justin attends it might complicate matters." NEWS: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together This certainly isn't the first time Gomez has taken to Instagram to share her emotions in headline-making fashion. Just last week, she posted a selfie with a cryptic message about class and confidence on the heels of the Biebs' nearly nude Instagram. And back in April, she shared a number of moody snaps along with the lyrics to Mary J. Blige's "Work In Progress," in addition to unfollowing everyone on the photo-sharing site (she is now following a total of four people and no, that doesn't include Bieber).
