One North Carolina mom is fighting Facebook's guidelines after a picture of her daughter was taken down and labeled child pornography!

She took the the picture of her two-year-old daughter and a friend, which was supposed to be a recreation of the famous Coppertone sunscreen advertisement, and posted it to Facebook.

Her account was suspended after she posted the original picture, which wasn't censored.

She added the emoji smiley face and reposted it.

It was flagged again, though Facebook said it met their terms and conditions.

She had the option to take it down or ignore the request.

She ignored it and was banned from the site for 24 hours.

She said she doesn't agree with the ban and wants to be able to show the picture on her page and on her photography page.

For our Social Media Question of the Day, we're asking you what you think about the picture. Do you think the mom should be able to post it? Or is it good that it was censored?
