Photographer Jill White took what she thought was a fun photo of her daughter. The 2-year-old's bikini bottom was being pulled down by her sister and Jill thought it resembled the iconic Coppertone ad where a dog was pulling down a kid's bikini on the beach.

It may have, but some Facebook users were not impressed and they reported the photo, saying it was "pornographic." Apparently, Facebook agreed and banned Jill from the site for 24 hours.

She later uploaded a censored version of the photo and it has not been removed, although some people have still tried to report it. Along with the updated photo, she included the caption, "Good NEWS...they will NOT be removing this photo!!!! But if I post the other photo again I will be banned from Facebook."

One news outlet, however, spoke with someone from the site and they said Jill is not currently facing a lifetime ban. "An official says an account must have multiple reported pieces of content deleted before they disable a Facebook account without the possibility of it being reactivated," WBTV reports, per their conversation with the rep.

The site does explain in their Terms of Service that they have a strict policy "against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity."

Obviously, we can all figure out what was censored and what wasn't, so do you think the photo crossed the line or do you think Facebook overreacted?
