Chelsea Handler posed topless on a horse, mocking that legendary photo of Vladimir Putin doing the same, and posted the photo to Instagram, only to have it taken down soon after. "Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin," Handler wrote.

ET Online reports that Handler posted the photo again and wrote, "If Instagram takes this down again, you're saying Vladimir Putin has more 1st amendment rights than me. Talk to your bosses." Obviously, they removed it again.

Later, Handler posted the message Instagram sent her in response and wrote, "If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?"
