BELLEVUE, Washington (KING 5)-- Marilyn McKenna makes no secret of the fact she used to weigh a whole lot more. Six years ago, she lost 120 pounds.
"I wasn't fat because I really wanted to be," said McKenna.
The wife of the former Washington Attorney General documents her weight loss journey on social media. Wednesday, she changed the profile on her Facebook fan page to a picture of her standing in what she calls her "fat pants".
Thursday morning, Facebook told her to take it down.
"I can't even fathom what they're thinking," she commented, "I have a hard time imagining that anyone is offended by that picture."
A spokesperson for the website said, "Facebook's terms require advertisers of weight loss and other adult products to limit the audience of their ads to people aged 18 and over."
Because McKenna paid Facebook to "promote" her photo, and according to the site, it advertised weight loss, she had to restrict her audience.
McKenna said she is not trying to sell anything.
"I'm not promoting anything," she said, "I'm talking about the weight loss journey I've been on."
She took her fight to Twitter, engaging in a long discussion on what took place, and commenting, "I call ******* on Facebook."
