Chelsea Handler is not happy that Instagram removed a topless photo she posted of herself.

The image features Handler riding horseback without a shirt spliced next to a famous photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin doing the same thing. Handler captioned the picture: “Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better #kremlin.” When Instagram took the image down, she put it back up and called the policy sexist (Instagram removed it again).

“Taking this down is sexist,” the comedian wrote in re-posting the image on her Twitter feed. “I have every right to show I have a better body than Putin.”

Handler also posted Instagram’s notice to her that it had removed the picture.
