Facebook: 2012 Donald Trump campaign button violates rules against nudity

Facebook-montageEarly on New Year’s Day, an administrator of the Facebook page “Wake UP, America” said he was told by the social media giant that a photo of a 2012 Donald Trump campaign button violates their community standards for nudity, even though the picture contains no nudity whatsoever.

“So I get this message from Facebook when I logged in this morning and it says I’ve posted nudity on the page,” the administrator said.  “[I]t shows me a photo of Donald Trump’s campaign button (face shot) with no nudity whatsoever. Then I am told I must unpublish the page while it is removed and am asked to log back in. Apparently Facebook doesn’t like Trump real well. I wonder how badly they are harrassing his campaign? We would never think of posting nudity on the page!”

Here’s the picture, and prepare yourself:

I’m still waiting for Facebook to tell me where, exactly, the nudity is here.  I’m not holding my breath, however.  Remember, these are people who think a picture of a lilac tree is pornography.
