Celebrities blast Instagram for new policy allowing it to sell users’ photos

Celebrities are sounding off on Twitter after Instagram announced a new policy change in which they will have the right to sell every user’s photos without giving any compensation to the photographer. 

A number of stars are outraged about the new policy, a result of Facebook’s recent acquisition of the photo-sharing application, and have vowed to cancel their accounts.

Instagram’s new Terms of Service are set to go into effect on January 16, 2013.

Kate Walsh: “No more Instagram.”

Jordin Sparks: “YIKES! Bye instagram.”

Kevin Hart: “So I guess this means that I’m done with Instagram…’s been real people!!! #DontWhoreMeOut”
