North Carolina mom opposes Facebook's censoring of her daughter’s "bum photo"

CBS Charlotte affiliate WBTV, a North Carolina mother and professional photographer Jill White is opposing social network Facebook's temporary ban of her two-year-old daughter's "bum photo."

According to the information shared by White with the news station, the in-question photo of her two-year-old daughter was clicked in an attempt to recreate the pose of the "Coppertone girl" from the 1950s. White said that that her daughter's bathing suit had been pulled down by the little girl's friend; and added that she had posted the picture online after seeking the permission of the friend's mother.

However, with the photo having been temporarily banned from Facebook because someone reportedly deemed the photo as inappropriate, White has asserted that she "stands behind" the photo as "there's nothing sexual" about it.

White told WBTV: "I posted [the photo] on Coppertone's [Facebook page]," White told WBTV. "We thought it would be cute because of the old Coppertone ad and her tan line looked like that."

Facebook apparently thought otherwise, and banned White for 24 hours. The ban resulted from the fact that Facebook's Terms of Service clearly state that the social network can "remove content that violates our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. If we determine you've posted something that violates our terms, you may receive a warning or become disabled, depending on how severe the violation is."
