Kylie Minogue Faces Facebook Ban For Hugging Teddy Bear!August 26th, 2010 - 7:57 pm ICT by GD

Aug 26, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Facebook has been making headlines these days for banning images that it considers racy or offensive. However, in another unexpected development the popular social networking site has banned in image of Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue which has not gone down well with her numerous fans. However, it would e wrong to assume that the famous singer wore any skimpy or revealing outfit and that led to the ban on the image. It was not the case at all. A fan gave her a cute looking big teddy bear.
The singer was performing at the G-A-Y nightclub of London when she got the cute toy. She hugged it lovingly and the fans snapped her photo which got posted online soon. However, the Facebook team was not happy with the way she held the bear and objected to the fact that the teddy did not have any lower garment on its body!
Apparently the nudity policy of the popular social networking site is applicable to toys. The management thinks that the image is kind of racy. The singer hugged the bear and there was hardly anything objectionable about it. Therefore many Facebook users expressed their wonder at the removal of the photo. It was initially posted on the page of a fan of the Chiggy Wiggy singer but the Facebook team pulled it down.
The singer has not reacted on the removal of her photo hugging the toy from the fan page in Facebook. It could be the case that she had no other intention that showing some love to the cute teddy onscreen but the impression the Facebook team got was different.
