Vampire Vixens Banned on Facebook!
A while ago we ran a review of the first episode of Vampire Vixens of the Wehrmacht- read it HERE.
Now artist Alex Ronald has revealed that the fan page for the strip has been, astoundingly, banned by Facebook for "hateful and threatening" content. Saying "Pages that are hateful, threatening, or obscene are not allowed."
Alex is, of course, rather annoyed and you can read his thoughts on this action HERE.
And just to pt this into perspective for you. Facebook think this obviously tongue in cheek and very funny comic to be hateful. This is the same Facebook who refused to ban a Holocaust denial page?
We may be wrong here, and if so you have our apologies- but we think there may be more "hateful and threatening" content involved in those particular groups.
We've contacted Facebook for a statement, and will let you know as and when, or if, they respond.
