Former Corporal Andy Reid, 37, lost both of his legs and one of his arms while serving our country in Afghanistan in 2009. The brave vet routinely posts pictures detailing his progress and recovery on his Facebook page. You can imagine his shock at finding that the photo above had been removed from the social media site after one user complained that it was offensive.
“This is nowhere near as offensive as some of the pictures spreading from Islamic State fighters. What’s the difference between me without my leg on and pictures of what’s going on in Gaza?”
The difference is that the PC police stay away from anyone and anything of Arab decent. If Reid was an Islamic extremist, his photo would have been totally acceptable.
I personally think that a good way for Facebook to make up for the horrible decision they made to censor this veteran’s photo, would be to pay for all of his medical expenses. Do you agree? Sound off in the comments section!
