Citing their content policy (read no nudity), Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has had his very popular Instagram account closed.

Coyne is known for his outlandish and outspoken art and behavior and has been known to share some NSFW material. But beyond that Coyne generally uses his Instagram to share art, behind-the-scenes tour photos and to promote emerging artists. A online petition has been created to try and get the account reinstated with the caveat:

“We are requesting his account be treated the same as other celebrities who have posted photos violating their terms of use yet remain active (i.e. Tyler, the Creator, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr).”

Recent collaborator Moby has signed the petition – commenting, “there is no place for artistic censorship in a free society. especially when the artist in question is wayne coyne.. bring back wayne’s amazing images.

Coyne has started a new account and hasn’t missed a beat but all the shared oddity of the past year appear to be lost to the Instagram trash can.

If you want to sign the petition head over to thefutureheart.com/coyne-petition.

Coyne and Flaming Lips are headlining the “Halloween Blood Bath” on October 31st at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium with Tame Impala and White Denim. Click here for details.
