Interesting to see Facebook playing political advocate...
Cartoonist Larry Pickering has been banned from Facebook over a lewd drawing of the Prime Minister. Pickering, who shot to prominence as a cartoonist for several newspapers, told Facebook fans he couldn't post for three days.The source of the grief is a cartoon, still live on his blog, featuring a naked Julia Gillard talking about the carbon tax.
The picture was far too obscene and offensive to post on a family website.
In the snap, Gillard is pictured bending over and holding the hand of a much smaller Penny Wong, and telling punters: "You'll wake up on July 1st and nothing will have changed."The couple, trying to escape the towering PM, says: "Mmm... not even the f---ing temperature... come on dear."
The cartoon has been doing the rounds for some months, but in response to his ban, Pickering posted last night: "Facebook's taken me off air for 3 days. Means I can't post for a while"Complaints again from the arrogant Left here on Facebook."Some of the comments are just as offensive, but like we said, this is a family website.
Hopefully I won't get banned
Much ado about nothing by the look of it.
Saw that all over the place.......sheesh....
I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant pluckers son. I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucker comes.
