Facebook forced cartoon character to hide his nipples

Nipples and Facebook seems to be a dangerous combination these days. Today, Dagens Media writes that the Swedish tv channel Kanal5 had bought ad space on Facebook for the tv show Myggan (“the Mosquito”). The ad displays a cartoon figure with no clothes on, but he conceals his private parts with his hands. But someone tagged the ad “topless man” which meant that Facebook didn’t show the ad as many times as they had agreed to do.

Per Lorentz at Kanal5 says that Facebook suggested that the character’s nipples would be covered with small black patches, which Kanal5 agreed to do.

The uncensored cartoon character can be found here. Just outrageous, isn’t he?
