Roger Ebert’s Facebook Page Taken Down After Ryan Dunn Tweets Cause Ire

Not even Roger Ebert is safe from Facebook. The movie critic’s Facebook page was taken down following comments he made via Twitter about Jackass star Ryan Dunn’s car crash on Monday.

The page was taken down on Tuesday morning, and was restored within the hour. But the incident demonstrates how easy it is for a Facebook page to get shut down for just about any reason, without warning.

Ebert tweeted, “Facebook has removed my page in response, apparently, to malicious complaints from one or two jerks. He then tweeted, “Facebook! My page is harmless and an asset to you. Why did you remove it in response to anonymous jerks? Makes you look bad.”

Just another reminder that “your” Facebook page isn’t really YOURS. It’s theirs.
