In response to our protest outside Facebook last week, their product policy team have offered us a meeting to discuss examples where we think blocking may have been down to disabilist bias within their systems. If you have examples you would like brought to FB’s attention please let us know by contacting us at: mail@dpac.uk.net.

Thanks to model and actor @TheLadyFuchsia for sharing with us the below photos. The top image – if her in a wheelchair – always gets blocked. The below – without a wheelchair – never does.

  1. Neither should be blocked. Blocked due a wheelchair is discrimination.

  2. Facebook are guilty of disability discrimination both images show nothing revealing but the wheelchair seems to be more inappropriate than the second image that shows more
