    The young woman has accused the social network of bias, arguing that her pictures wouldn't be banned if she were slim.

    Plus-size fashion model Georgina Horne has accused Instagram of hiding her publications from the newsfeed.

    In her recent post, the 30-year-old woman claimed that the app administration is infringing on the rights of plus-size people, intentionally displaying pictures of slim girls at the top.

    "I've been shadow banned on Instagram — I can tell because my posts never make ‘top posts' on hashtags with few posts, and my likes have vastly depleted. If I were a slim woman posting similar content then this wouldn't happen," the young woman wrote.
