Dad falls victim to Facebook hate speech filter after posting Peppa Pig snap
A dad fell in love with Facebook’s hate speech filter after sharing a photo of him and his daughter on a Peppa Pig ride.
James Belshaw, 43, was asked by a cheeky pal, “Who had more fun?”, So he joked, “Daddy Pig.”
Overly sensitive Facebook bots deleted the post, saying it could be interpreted as abuse.
Bus driver James, who was with River, three, in Paultons Park, Hants, said: “I couldn’t believe it.
“All I can think of is the filter thought I was calling someone pig.”
James, 43, who lives with his wife Sophia, 31, in Woking, Surrey, responded to his friend after being asked a warning if he wanted to continue.
He added: “Anyone who goes to a children’s farm or walks in the countryside might write ‘pig’ and fall in love with it.
“There must be some protection, but that is clearly overkill.”
The Sun recently revealed that Facebook banned the phrase Cockshoot Dyke, Norfolk, because it was too rude.
The social network was asked to comment.
