Kangaroo Censorship Gets Internet Riled Up
A cheeky tourism image of a kangaroo has got the internet buzzing after the animal was shown with its nether region censored out.
Tourism Australia posted the photo of the kangaroo at Featherdale Wildlife Park on its Facebook page, with the note that the image had been "censored for Facebook." The animal –- which coincidentally is named "Big Baz" –- was shown lying on it's back in such a way that its anatomy would have been fully exposed.
The joke was apparently lost on many Facebook users, who bombarded the tourism board with thousands of comments questioning the decision to censor the image. "Wtf. Political correctness gone mad. It's a kangaroo," said one user, while another remarked, "How ridiculous! What on earth is wrong with showing the kangaroo's bits, it's an animal."
What do you think? Was the decision to censor the kangaroo wrong or funny?
