Cody Simpson created a stir on Instagram and Facebook on Sunday when he posted a nude photo of himself on the social networking sites.

The photo clearly shows Simpson standing on a balcony overlooking an ocean view. “Free. Throwback to Sunday morning on the coast after a big one. Surfed out too. How bout that tan. Taken by bae [sic[,” read the caption. ‘Bae’ is believed to be Simpson’s ex-love Gigi Hadid.

Instagram Removes Cody Simpson's Nude Photo

Taken from the back, the photo doesn’t reveal anything too scandalous, and while fans no doubt appreciated seeing the heartthrob’s naked butt, Instagram did not.

“You may not post violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content via the Service,” reads Instagram’s Terms of Use.

The photo-sharing site reportedly took down Simpson’s scandalous photo on Monday. Simpson tweeted, “looks like Instagram didn’t like my a—.”

Simpson is currently in LA and will perform “Surfboard” on the season finale of Dancing With the Stars.
