Indian actress Kasthuri Shankur got a wake up call on Instagram over the weekend when she posted a seemingly innocent photo that was removed for violating Instagram's rigid community guidelines.

Above is the photo and the accompanying caption posted by the 45-year-old TV and film star. Can you spot the violation? No? Read the caption again.

The frustrated actress wrote:

"Instagram keeps removing my pic.... And accusing me of violating their rules- what rule has this post possibly violated? @instagram".

Biological women like Kasthuri, who state the obvious on social media - that they are "real" women, risk having their posts removed or their accounts banned altogether.

Apparently, Instagram is punishing bio women for being insensitive or intolerant of others who spend a lot of money, time and effort trying to look like them.

Bio women on social media are increasingly under attack for acknowledging their natural femininity, which is considered an act of violence to people who were born male.

The next time you post about being "real" on Instagram, make sure you're not referring to your God-given feminine or physical attributes.

At best, Code Red is expected to sell or stream 37,000 units in the 1st week.

This comes after Mo and her management put together a well-organized promotional campaign that saw the Atlanta songbird performing promo shows around the country to promote her album and appearing on talk shows.

Monica's estimated 1st week sales provide more evidence that social media follows and 'likes' are worthless and often do not translate to sales for artists.
