‘Hollyboob’ Prank Planned By Insta Model After Social Media Ban Over Near-Nudity

Written by on February 3, 2021


(CNET) – Social media influencer Julia Rose says she changed the sign to protest what she sees as censorship of racier content by Instagram. Police arrested Rose and five others for trespassing, and park rangers quickly restored the iconic sign to its usual status. 

“This was way uncool (not to mention the terrain is quite steep and dangerous),” Captain Steve Lurie, commanding officer of LAPD’s Hollywood area, tweeted Monday.  

Rose is founder and CEO of Shag Mag, a digital publication that features “exclusive and uncensored content of Julia Rose and other up and coming Instagram models” (yes, there are lots of boobs).

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, Rose said she first came up with the Hollyboob idea last year after Instagram warned her about nudity on her personal and company accounts. The accounts had about 6 million followers combined before they were disabled, the Times reports. 

Rose also made headlines during the 2019 World Series, when she and some friends flashed their breasts to TV cameras from seats behind home plate. At the time, they also said they were raising awareness of breast cancer. 

Rose and Tenney face court appearances for their Hollyboob hijinks later this year.
