Facebook has embarrassed itself by yet again censoring the iconic cover of Nirvana’s seminal Nevermind album. The world’s largest social networking site and branded communications platform first censored the image when the band’s Facebook page posted it at the end of July in preparation for next month’s 20th anniversary of the album’s release.

The image of a naked baby boy swimming after a dollar bill was deemed to have violated the site’s Terms of Use, which band photos containing nudity, violence or drug use.

After a backlash from music fans around the world, Facebook relented and reinstated the image and the world moved on, while secretly wondering whether Facebook was becoming the Big Brother we have been warned about for decades.

Fast forward barely four weeks later and it’s happened again! This afternoon, Facebook has censored the Nevermind cover yet again for violating its Terms of Use.

An exasperated administrator of Nirvana’s Facebook page has posted a screen grab of the warning, asking “Facebook, why do you keep taking down the Nevermind cover?”

Naturally fans have reacted with outrage, questioning why one of the iconic images of the 20th Century with an innocent depiction of a naked baby should be censored.
