Sydney: Facebook has reportedly removed a fully-clothed weight loss picture of Marilyn McKenna, wife of former Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, for promoting "adult content".

After losing 54kg post a lap band surgery, Marilyn, who weighed 120kg six years ago, posted a picture of herself wearing her old baggy pants that fitted both her legs inside one of its own while she held the waist-band out to show weight loss.
According to a news website, Marilyn was asked to remove the picture because it was promoting "idealised physical appearances" and was "policy violating".

Justifying its course of action, a Facebook representative emailed her saying that she was promoting adult content, referring to her photo as a promotional advertisement.
Marilyn followed a strict regime that led to her weight loss. She has been actively documenting it on her Facebook fan page and blogs.
