Should Facebook control what art you see?

Sir Peter Paul Rubens was a European artist who lived from 1577 to 1640. He is world-famous for his paintings, many of which include nude and semi-naked people and cherubs.

Rubens’ works of nudity are displayed in museums and art galleries all over the world, but one place where you cannot see them is on Facebook where they are censored.

In the above video the social media police protect visitors to a Rubens art gallery from seeing paintings depicting nudity.

Do you agree with Facebook’s social media police?
