Facebook has self-censored once again by shutting down a same-sex kiss-in event, which was planned for Pope Benedict XVI's arrival in Spain next month.
The page promoting the same-sex kissing Flashmob had gotten 12,000 users confirmed for the event, which was scheduled to take place in Cathedral Square in Barcelona on November 7.
No word yet on how this will affect the actual event.
You can say what you want about the event's content, but the fact is this marks another case of censorship by Facebook, and it's directed at the gay community, which is NOT cool.
What do U think about Facebook's censorship of this event?
Update: A Facebook rep has reached out to PerezHilton.com and informed us of the reasoning behind taking down the profile. Turns out that "The event in question no longer appears on Facebook because it was connected to a fake profile that was shut down. Fake profiles are in violation of our terms."
And there you have it.
