Mayor forced to remove nude art from Facebook
Left with the decision to take down the image or have her account closed, Cr Dowell chose to delete the offending image. Not , however, without unleashing her disapproval on the social networking platform:
“Sincere apologies to artist Deborah Kelly and her brave subject Simone. I’m sad to say that Facebook forced me to delete the photo of them standing in front of Deborah’s work in her exhibition that opened last night at the Lismore Gallery.
The pic was reported and if I didn’t remove it, my account would have been closed.
I’ve deleted the pic reluctantly as my use of FB is an important part of my civic role – and I’ve told FB that when I end my term of mayor I will close my account.
