Facebook Apologizes for Being Dumb

Last week, many tributes poured out for the legendary Burt Reynolds. And, while we all totally acknowledged his talent and going East Bound and Down, many of us decided to share this image:

Your Aunt Linda/Mom/Grandma Betty/ Uncle Tony, or whomever probably saw this in Cosmo back in the day. It's such a memorable thing to look at. My buddy Guin said, "I understand he felt sort of embarrassed by how big a deal it became." I can see that. 

However...here we are...in 2018...talking about this photo being "risque." 

Meaning, Facebook wasn't having it. So many people (myself included) were finding their posts taken down. 

Via Vulture:

As Facebook said in a statement Friday, “It does not break our standards and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
