Tell Facebook: Don't Censor Photos of Kids With Disabilities

take action
Cole Cornwall has Down Syndrome and cannot speak. Recently, this smiley 7-year-old from North Carolina participated in his first Special Olympics event. However, when his proud mother Diane posted the resulting photos on Facebook, she was told that she had violated the social media giant's terms of use.

What gives? »

“Never upload any photos that contain hate speech, support for violent organizations or threats to harm others,” Diane was told. She was then locked out of her Facebook account for three days. 
This is completely absurd.
Facebook should apologize to Diane and her family for flagging their photos as a violation of Facebook's policies.
Take action today!
