Facebook has suffered some embarrassing PR disasters in recent weeks, and it looks like they aren’t done yet.
In their attempt to be as politically correct as possible, Facebook has continued its crackdown on mean words and imagery that might trigger people.
It also actively works to control what people sell on the social media site. While there has been rash of Facebook users selling stolen items on the site, Facebook has instead been cracking down on people selling animals and guns.
But their policy seems to have gone overboard, after they targeted a guy selling a Star Wars action figure.
Here is a screenshot of the toy a Facebook wanted to sell.
That post then triggered this warning to the user by Facebook, which he also took a screenshot of and shared it to friends.
As you might expect, it appears Facebook had an issue with the toy gun included with the action figure, even though it only measured an inch long and didn’t actually fire.
The Facebook user was able to relist the item by taking the gun out of the picture, but a lesson was learned in Facebook’s latest overreaction.
