Instagram is rolling out a new keyword moderation tool today, as the Facebook-owned photo and video platform looks to help its 500 million-plus community filter out comments they find offensive.

The initiative represents an extension of a program first unveiled for businesses and celebrities a couple of months back, with model Christine Teigen tweeting out a handful of notable examples of words she was planning to block from the comments section on her published photos.
