Rihanna quickly followed up with posts about her return:

Since Sunday, the singer has already uploaded 14 photos.
She’s clearly happy to be back, so why the long absence?
“We briefly disabled the account by mistake and restored it quickly,” an Instagram rep said at the time. But it was too late, the app had already offended the singer with their policies.
Rihanna had also previously caused Instagram controversy with photos she posted of herself posing in front of a restricted area
outside of a mosque in Abu Dhabi wearing a full black suit — her own interpretation of a burka.
According to a statement put out by the mosque, Rihanna was in an area off limits to visitors. The singer’s photos were “inconsistent with the sanctity of the mosque.”
Regardless, Instagram is clearly happy to have her back.
“You can now find my dogs and my breasts on Twitter only where my followers have the right to choose what they say. Bye bye Instablock.”
