Man banned from Facebook for liking faggots

1 November 2013

facebook mobile Facebook users have been banned after talking about faggots. Now, obviously, we all know that faggot is a slur against gay people, but this lot were talking about the traditional English delicacy.

One bloke had his account shut down for 12 hours after writing 'I like faggots' while another one was booted off for posting a picture of a bowl of faggots.

The social network says they're having a crackdown on the word, even if it is in reference to something made from pig hearts and livers.

Robert Wilkes, who received the ban, said he was reminiscing about the meals he had growing up in the Black Country and said: "It may have a different meaning in America but I used it in a food context." A spokesman for Facebook confessed that one post had been removed in error, but  as a result of a misunderstanding. However, this is the network that, until recently, allowed videos of people being beheaded, so we shouldn't expect too much from them.

Christ knows what will happen when people spell 'pouf' incorrectly.

  • Captain.Cretin
    Yes, we have to keep the beheading videos to balance out all the cute kitten videos.
  • wonka
    Can't we just behead a kitten then?
  • Captain.Cretin
    Not quite beheading, but there is a fetish for videos showing women in high heels stomping puppies and kittens to death. Perhaps those with a FB account could upload a few.
