Facebook recently blocked an ad for onions because it was deemed “overtly sexual.”
Canadian seed company E.W. Gaze shared a photo of Walla Walla onions grouped together in a basket.
However, it set off an alert by Facebook and was immediately flagged.
Their explanation for blocking the photo was, “Products with Overtly Sexualized Positioning. Listings may not position products or services in a sexually aggressive manner.”
Makes you wanna cry…
