Rap newcomer Chief Keef has been banned from photo-sharing website Instagram after violating the rules by posting a sexually explicit photo online.

The hip-hop star caused controversy over the weekend (15-16Sep12) when he uploaded an image of himself receiving oral sex from a female fan on his Twitter.com page via Instagram.

The picture was removed soon afterwards, but it had already been re-tweeted and picked up by websites across the world and Instagram bosses subsequently shut down his account because the sex shot was in violation of rules against nudity and sexually suggestive photos.

Chief Keef's Twitter blog still remains active.
