A sexy, nearly not-safe-for-work clip of a busty Kate Upton busting a move in a tiny bikini lit up computer screens this week after it was posted to YouTube.
But the video vanished from the website Tuesday after it was yanked for violating the site’s “community guidelines,” which disallows nudity “particularly if it is in a sexual context.” A clip of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition’s cover girl demonstrating the “Cat Daddy” in a barely-there string bikini arguably qualifies as sexual content.
Terry Richardson, the photographer (and “Boogie Nights” porn director look-alike) who shot the video, then put the clip on on Vimeo. But like magic, the Upton clip reappeared on YouTube Wednesday with a warning: “This content may contain material flagged by YouTube’s user community that may be inappropriate for some users.”
For its part, YouTube says that the removal of the video was a “mistake.” Nevertheless, the video is back on the site and has been viewed over 1.5 million times. Go ahead, rack up that number a little more.
