Rihanna’s Instagram has been shut down, but why and for how long?

Last week Rihanna posted some very naked photos to Instagram and was warned by the company to stop doing it after they pulled her pics. So why is her account now closed? Was it because of her silly (and harmless) response to their warnings? Doubtful since Instagram claims her account was shut down in error.

Instagram stated, when asked about the situation by E!, “This account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

Very briefly? That’s interesting since it’s still shut down and when you go to her account you get this more than a day later…

So did Rihanna just decide to quit Instagram after being scolded? Or was her posting the nude pics her final bow since she planned on shutting down the account for good anyway? So far, no one from Rihanna’s camp has commented, but we pray that isn’t the case. We need her impromptu bikini photo shoots!
