As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:

Facebook apologized to a Geneva, Switzerland, museum after a post featuring nude statues in an exhibit was censored.

“We recently created space in our advertising policies to allow museums to more easily promote their exhibits and continue to improve on how we enforce this policy,” a spokesperson from Facebook told The Hill Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The ad was inadvertently rejected, has since been overturned, and we have apologized to the museum,” Facebook said.

The Museum of Art and History tweeted Friday that they had tried to post pictures of two statues from their “Caesar and the Rhone” exhibit as an ad, but that Facebook had “prevented us from it, because of their nudity.”

“Maybe it’s time that this platform changes its policy for museums and cultural institutions?” they added.
