Chelsea Handler‘s putting it all out there.

The comedian and former Chelsea Lately host recently posted a revealing picture of herself on Instagram – and then accused the photo-sharing service of sexism after it pulled the image down.

In the photo, Chandler is seated topless on a horse, spoofing a now infamous bucolic picture of Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.

“Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better. #kremlin,” she captioned the image, which was later yanked by Instagram.

Handler promptly fought back, this time sending out the image on Twitter (Warning: contains nudity ) along with the message: “Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin.”

She also reposted the photo on Instagram – which once again removed it.

The popular app is known for its no-nudity policy. “We removed your post because it doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines,” read a message Instagram sent Handler, which she then uploaded to her page as well.

“If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it’s ok, but not a woman,” Handler railed in the caption. “Are we in 1825?”

As for what she’s up to professionally these days, Handler can be seen – clothed – on her newest one-hour stand-up comedy special, Uganda Be Kidding Me Live, streaming on Netflix.
