Teen Bride Courtney Stodden Kicked Off Facebook for Being “Too Sexy.” Mom Blames “Jealousy.”
With it’s numerous fan pages littered with young girls clad in lingerie and skimpy bikinis, Facebook could easily be dubbed “Boobbook,” “Buttbook,” or “NudeBook,”so we thought it was odd when teen bride Courtney Stodden, 17, announced that she had been kicked off of Facebook for “sexy photos.” Courtney may be creepy—her husband is a 51-year-old actor after all—but too sexy? What gives?
Late last week, the aspiring actress and model Tweeted, “Are you ready to compellingly connect with me on Facebook? : )” while directing fans to her new Facebook Fan Page but a mere few hours later the California girl was already unceremoniously kicked from the social networking juggernaut. She then tweeted, “Too sexy for Facebook? : )”
Although Courtney seemed to be taking the diss in stride, her mother/manager Krista Keller was livid and blaming the haters for her daughter’s unjustified boot from Facebook. “It’s the jealousy from the women towards her,” Krista told E! News. “The men love her, the women hate her. The women report the photo because it’s so easy to do. You just click a button. They think she’s too sexy, they all report her together, and it’s done.”
We kinda agree. If Facebook shut down every account with bikini photos, I wouldn’t have any friends or an account for that matter. Krista continued her thoughts on her baby’s dismissal: “On any Facebook page, people can report it for inappropriate content,” Krista said. “There is nothing on her page you wouldn’t find anywhere on Facebook! She has never done any nudity. Not a breast, not even a butt cheek. It’s just her in a bathing suit! It’s ridiculous! She’s dealt with bullying in Ocean Shores, Washington, she’s dealt with it in Hollywood, and now she’s dealing with it globally.”
Well, Facebook reevaluated their position, used Britney Spears‘ favorite “Oops” reasoning and reinstated Courtney’s fan page. “This page was removed in error and has been restored,” Facebook said in a statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience caused.”
Courtney’s mother, of course, commented on her sweet vindication. “Happy that it was finally addressed,” Krista said. “We have the utmost respect for Facebook and Mark [Zuckerberg]! Maybe Facebook can look at the cyber-bullying and do something more proactive. Putting a stop to cyber-bullying is something Courtney is very involved in. She’s happy something was done!”
Next up for Courtney is a reality show with her new hubbie. Will you watch?
