Facebook to Meet #WeTheNipple Campaigners Amid Nudity Censorship Row

Home Blog Facebook to Meet #WeTheNipple Campaigners Amid Nudity Censorship Row

Facebook has recently agreed to meet with anti-censorship campaigners regarding their policy regarding artistic nudity. The #WeTheNipple campaign was co-organized by National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) and a renowned American artist, Spencer Tunick. Their publicity stunt on June 2, 2019 included 125 naked demonstrators that used images of men's nipples to cover their genitalia, in protest of Facebook's censorship policies. Facebook had agreed to meet with the NCAC and other stakeholders.

Facebook announced that the company's policy team had committed to "convening a group of stakeholders including artists, art educators, museum curators, activists, and Facebook employees" to explore how to serve these individuals better. NCAC released a statement indicating they look forward to working with Facebook to tackle working with diverse communities and develop policies that recognize the value of creative artists.

We hope that their work with Facebook will lead to Facebook better managing their policies on nudity and allowing what they have already deemed as acceptable content to be used on their platform.
