The 29-year-old model is no stranger to baring her chest for work, previously posing topless for the likes of DuJour alongside her husband John Legend.

Her latest stint was for W magazine and once again she gave a glimpse at her naked breasts for the camera, proudly posting the racy snap on her Instagram account. But the image was quickly removed, which evidently irked Chrissy.

"the nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back (sic)," she wrote to her followers on Twitter.

Some websites have added their own touches to the snap, such as a bunny emoji over her nipple. This only irritated the fashion star more as she called out those editing her pictures.

"How the f**k you gonna be a blog and put a watermark on MY photo gtfo (sic)” she fumed.

Despite uploading the photo again and using various filters to disguise her bareness, Instagram kept removing them.

The move even annoyed fellow Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Brooklyn Decker, who demanded Chrissy bring her nipple back.

“@BrooklynDecker your wish is my command, (sic)" she replied.

"The most uncomfortable I’ve ever been on set was having to model coats. I actually am better in less clothing," Chrissy explained to the publication.

Rosie backed this up, adding that she feels a sense of "empowerment" when shooting nude.
