Recently The Costa Rica Post fired one of our interns for submitting an offensive meme featuring Frente Amplio Candidate Edgardo Araya and a transparent box containing a dildo. But against our better judgement, we posted it anyways.

Then Facebook fired us, and it turns out dildos weren’t even the problem.

According to Facebook, the meme we posted doesn’t follow community standards, and since Facebook doesn’t allow post that bully private individuals, like people that don’t have a chance at becoming president, or any other post intended to degrade or shame a specific person, including but not limited to every single thing The Costa Rica Post has ever posted, they had no choice but to remove the offensive material.

The original ad, which likens Costa Rica’s next president, Antonio Álvarez Desanti, to a cold blooded ferdelance, was banned from television in Costa Rica but can still be found on Araya’s fan page, as well as below for those of you too lazy to click relevant outbound links. 

In response, the editors at the Costa Rica post have instated a more rigorous dildo screening process to avoid offending its readers.
