Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has been kicked off Instagram due to violations of the terms of use. The singer, known for posting photos containing nudity amidst concert photos, has had his account deleted this week, apparently after posting photos with nudity in them. Instagrams rules forbid "nude, partially nude, or sexually suggestive photos."

This isn't the first time he's violated the terms of use, though. He once Instagrammed a picture of his ass:


There is a petition at fan site The Future Heart to have Coyne's account reinstated, to prevent the loss of the other photos on his page.

From The Future Heart:

"The vast majority of his 1227 posts are concert photos, behind the scenes images of his band’s projects, shots with other musicians, rock posters, art, and playful selfies in good standing with your policies."

Fans are threatening to delete their own accounts if the photos aren't reinstated. Sign the petition here and check out Coyne's new account on Instagram.
