Facebook apologizes for removing photo of nude Neptune statue (via Mashable)

“How can a work of art be an object of censorship?”

Facebook has come under fire again for blocking a photograph of a 16th-century statue of Neptune, the sea god, because it is “sexually explicit.”

The famed statue stands in Piazza del Nettuno in the Italian city of Bologna and was chosen by local writer and art historian Elisa Barbari to illustrate her Facebook page called “Stories, curiosities and views of Bologna.”
