Facebook has standards. And 19-year-old Kendall Jones’ hunting photos violate those standards, a spokesperson for the social network told Mashable.
Specifically, the pictures were deemed to break a rule about “graphic images shared for sadistic effect or to celebrate or glorify violence,” as outlined in this page on Facebook Community Standards.
“We remove reported content that promotes poaching of endangered species, the sale of animals for organized fight or content that includes extreme acts of animal abuse,” a Facebook spokesperson told Mashable.
When Juneau Empire reporter Matt Woolbright spotted the “Kill Kendall Jones” Facebook page, he reported it as “harassment” and a “credible threat of violence.” But as Woolbright was told, the page doesn’t violate Facebook’s standards.
Whether it’s a “credible threat,” hyperbole or trolling, it’s worth noting that the Kill Kendall Jones page features the same hunting photos that violated Facebook’s standards.
The page also includes this image (and not much else):
The Kill Kendall Jones page has 332 likes. Jones’ Facebook page has more than half a million likes.
