Well color me surprised, Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy” album cover no longer meets Facebook’s decency standards. SMH.
If you’ve been living in a hole in the ground for the last oh, I don’t know 46 years, you may not now that one of the most prolific classic rock albums of all time, “Houses of the Holy,” depicts a bunch of naked kids climbing on some rocky terrain in Northern Ireland. Although there are several children, they were all portrayed by two child models. And, yes, they’re nude, but image isn’t all that explicit.
Well, it appears that Facebook just got around to being offended by it. One user recently found out that they had removed an image of the album that she posted in 2011. Then she started hearing from others who were experiencing the same thing. Some people were even getting temporarily locked out of their accounts.
Someone started a petition at Change.org but be careful sharing the link, it could get you in trouble on Facebook.
