Facebook bans Larry Pickering for Aussie PM cartoon
Australian political cartoonist Larry Pickering says he is banned from Facebook for three days after complaints about a recent cartoon depicting a naked Prime Minister Julia Gillard with a strap-on dildo saying “You’ll wake up on July 1st and nothing will have changed” (speaking of a carbon tax). He was threatened with permanent banning if he didn’t remove the cartoon from Facebook – which has since done. It’s up on his blog. He has another administrator posting updates on his behalf.
