Be careful what you post on your Facebook wall.

Deemed by the users as containing sexually implicit content, removed a photo of two in violation to their Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. The controversy started in UK with a demonstration against a bar who kicked out two men because they were supposedly kissing in the corner.

The story that was covered by Pink News was quoted by blogger, Niall O’Conghaile, with the photo in question. Online talk show host, Richard Metzger, posted the story on his Facebook wall. But he received an e-mail from the Facebook Team following that, warning him that the content on his wall violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

The photo is originally from the popular BBC soap opera, East Enders, and was not used in line of the said UK bar demonstration. Regardless, wants Facebook users to make a stand.

“I’ve written to Facebook asking them why this content was removed, but have at this point received no reply. I’ll update this post when I do. In the meantime, why not share this photo on FB as much as you can?”

After that, a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement that the image was removed in error and apologizes for the inconvenience.
