Facebook admits boob on nipple ban

Social notworking site Facebook has backed down on its ban of an Aussie jewellery outfit which had pictures of manikins with their nipples painted on. 

The retired nuns, military personal, and loonies which make up Facebook’s censorship committee wanted  Victoria Buckley’s photos off its site.

Unfortunately the Sydney jeweller had a bit of fame on and offline and was soon hitting the headlines claiming that Facebook had an “opaque” and “arbitrary” moderation system.

The social networking site admitted this morning that it made a cock-up in the breast censorship department by removing Victoria Buckley’s photos, sending her several warning notices for publishing “inappropriate content” and erasing both censored and uncensored versions of the image from Facebook.

The committee studied Victoria Buckley’s breasts a lot more closely and decided it had made a mistake in deciding that they were porn: “And while we believe the doll would benefit from clothing to protect her fair skin, we apologise for the mistake and encourage Victoria Buckley Jewellery to upload these photos again if they so choose.”

This is not the first time Facebook has boobed on breast censorship. The outfit banned snaps of women breastfeeding their children saying that such shots are “obscene content”.

It also banned images of a British woman’s mastectomy scars, which were published on the site to raise awareness of breast cancer.
