HICKORY, N.C. – A North Carolina mother was temporarily kicked off Facebook after posting a photo of her daughter.

Jill White told WJZY-TV that she took a picture of her daughter playing with a friend at the beach. It resembled the popular Coppertone sunblock advertisement of the puppy pulling on a little girl’s bathing suit.

After White posted the picture, notably covering up the backside of the little girl, on Facebook, someone reported it as pornographic, according to WJZY.

According to the TV station, White said Facebook demanded she remove it and when she refused they banned her for 24 hours.

Facebook told WJZY the image is not pornographic, but couldn’t prove the relationship between the photo and the children.
