A Tennessee mother says she was banned for a day from Facebook after posting photos of her dying infant son who was born without parts of his brain and skull.
After Facebook deleted the photos of the infant, Grayson James Walker, the newborn’s mother reposted them, prompting the social-media giant to ban her from the site for 24 hours, the mother told KCTV 5.
"They allow people to post almost nude pictures of themselves, profanity, and so many other things but I'm not allowed to share a picture of God's beautiful creation," the mother, Heather Walker, of Millington, Tenn., told KCTV.
Facebook’s community standards state that the company can remove content that contains graphic violence, threats, self-harm, bullying and harassment, hate speech or nudity and pornography.
I don't think they should sue over this . I'm pretty sure if you read the small print face book owns your face book page , and can do anything they want with the pictures you post . That said lots of people post pictures of their newborns on face book , are only the "pretty" ones allowed now ?Sixteen weeks into the pregnancy, Walker and her husband Patrick discovered their child suffered from anecephaly, a rare but fatal neural tube birth defect.
When Grayson was born on Feb. 15, they knew he would only have precious few hours to live.
Indeed, he died when he was just eight hours old.
The couple sent a professional photographer to the hospital to document the birth so the family could honor the memory of their son, Gizmodo reported.
They posted several photos on Facebook - some with Grayson wearing a hat, and others exposing the baby's birth defect.
Responding to her troubles with Facebook, dozens of people have shared their support for Walker on the Benefit for Grayson James Walker Faceboek page. One commenter wrote that he hopes the family sues Facebook “for calling their son inappropriate."
