Facebook Censors Mammogram Image Because Breast Cooties, I Suppose
And in our latest episode of “Goony Facebook content-blocking,” we have a picture of a mammogram. “Less than a month after facing backlash over its censorship of the Vietnam War’s iconic ‘Napalm Girl’ image, the social media giant is now under fire for removing an article published by Les Décodeurs, a data-focused website affiliated with French newspaper Le Monde. The story, about the French government’s efforts to overhaul mammogram-screening in the country, included a lead image of an exposed female breast. The nipple in the photograph apparently violated Facebook’s nudity policy.” As you might imagine, this article features images of female breasts.
