Facebook police strikes again: bans Denmark's national treasure, because she is naked and apparently too sexy.
'The Naughty Little Mermaid'.
It seems to be Facebook's alternative translation of H.C. Andersen's fairy tale of The Little Mermaid.
So the social media banned an image of the world-famous statue looking over Langelinie, because of 'nudity or sexual content'.
Behind the 'offensive' post is the Danish MP Mette Gjerskov, who tried to put a TV2 story with the image, on the social media site.
- It is totally ludicrous to have refused a post with a picture of Denmark's national treasure. There is little bare skin on a statue in Copenhagen harbor, says Mette Gjerskov to Ekstra Bladet.
The politician doesn't know if she should laugh or cry over Facebook's behavior.
- I can slap my thighs and laugh at how ridiculous the world works, but if you do not see this as a big joke, one should take hold of Facebook. And the political way is through the Competition Commissioner in the EU, Margrethe Vestager, who can strong-arm them, she says.
