Woman Says Facebook Removed Her ‘Fat Pants’ Photo

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A Seattle-area woman who has been documenting her incredible weight loss – she dropped 120 pounds – is angry at Facebook for forcing her to remove a photo.

The photo shows Marilyn McKenna standing inside one of the legs of her “fat pants.”

“I can’t even fathom what they’re thinking,” McKenna told local news station King 5. “I have a hard time imagining that anyone is offended by that picture.”

McKenna posted the pic on her Twitter account where she lambasted Facebook’s ruling in the photo’s caption.

“FB refused me this profile pic bcuz it “promotes idealized body image,” deems it harmful. I call b*******,” she tweeted.

A spokesperson for the website said, “Facebook’s terms require advertisers of weight loss and other adult products to limit the audience of their ads to people aged 18 and over,” according to KING5 report.

McKenna paid Facebook to “promote” her photo, and according to Facebook’s site, the image advertised weight loss. McKenna had to restrict her audience.
