The wife of former Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna is sparking a conversation about Facebook censorship.
Marilyn McKenna lost 120 pounds over six years ago, and posed in a picture while standing in a single pant leg of what she calls her "fat pants." When she made that image her Facebook fan page profile picture, Facebook declined her request to "boost" the image, saying it promotes idealized physical appearances and is policy violating.
McKenna also says Facebook officials told her users aren't allowed to post before-and-after photos or anything with a tape measure.
We want to know what you think: was it right for Facebook to reject the image? Was Marilyn McKenna participating in "fat-shaming" or is the social media site being too sensitive?
