Facebook is removing Veteran Amputees photos` and calling them offensive and against the Community Standards of Facebook. Please like and share.


The ploy of falsely claiming that Facebook are indiscriminately removing photos that fall into a particular category is a popular and very successful method used by social media hoaxers to create disbelief and anger from those that read their hoaxers messages.

In this case hoaxers are claiming that Facebook are removing photos that show veteran amputees, as such images are offensive and against Facebooks community standards.

Of course, this is nothing more than a silly, time-wasting hoax, created by pathetic hoaxers who simply want to cause anger and resentment between Facebook and its users.

There is absolutely no evidence that suggests this rumour is true, and it is easily debunkable simply by looking at many of such photos depicting veteran amputees that are on Facebook without being removed, including the very photo that commonly circulates with this message that shows veteran Casey Owens, taken in 2005 during President Bush’s 2nd inauguration.

The implication that Facebook considers photos of veteran amputees as offensive is of course completely ridiculous and should really be dismissed as such simply be employing a little common sense.

Before sharing rumours that claim Facebook are inexplicably removing photos like this, remember to take a look around the site to determine if the rumour is true. As for rumours such as this, you can be almost certain that it is nothing more than a baseless and pointless hoax.
