Facebook is under fire for censorship again, this time for blocking an image of a mammogram

Facebook just can’t help itself.
Less than a month after facing backlash over its censorship of the Vietnam War’s iconic “Napalm Girl” image, the social media giant is now under fire for removing an article published by Les Décodeurs, a data-focused website affiliated with French newspaper Le Monde. The story, about the French government’s efforts to overhaul mammogram-screening in the country, included a lead image of an exposed female breast. The nipple in the photograph apparently violated Facebook’s nudity policy.
“Facebook just censored this mammography photo. Thanks Facebook for fighting everyday against the nipple,” a Le Monde journalist tweeted on Oct. 11.
