Gay cure ad removed from Facebook

A US-based evangelical group, Anchored North, has been using Facebook to target gay people who were interested in ‘Gay Pride’ with online ads promoting gay ‘cures.’ The ad quickly amassed more than 200,000 views until it was removed.

A Facebook spokesperson said: “This ad violates our advertising policies, and has been removed.” Facebook’s policies restrict against illegal content and must not contain discriminatory material based on sxual orientation or gender identity.

Facebook users whould watch for this type of content and always report it.
