Questionable Online Photo

College sophomore here beginning to look at the recruiting process. My Halloween costume poked fun at banking (think "Short the vix" level jokes) and unfortunately a photo of myself and a friend was posted, uncensored, to an Instagram account with a high number of followers.

Should I be concerned and message the account to take the photo down, or just assume no one will look/care and proceed as usual?

We're definitely going to need to see said picture immediately (or tell us what insta account).. But it's probably no big deal. Even if a bank looks at your insta account (probably unlikely, but not sure), the only way they could know a pic is of you is if you're a public account (easily changeable) and were tagged in the pic.
