A California woman says that Facebook censors took down her pictures and you won’t believe why.

Christie Kemp runs a Facebook group dedicated to breastfeeding and she believes her efforts to help other moms bond with their children has come under attack.

When pictures of women breastfeeding their children were flagged as inappropriate, Facebook shut the group page down.

Kemp fought back.

“It’s not right. I’m trying to do good for mothers and I’m getting kicked off for posting pictures of the most beautiful act a mother can do for their kid,” she said.

The group is back up and according to Facebook, the temporary shutdown was due to an “error.”
