Mark Mathie hits Facebook for banning his & # 39; for & # 39; and & # 39; after & # 39; transformation video of his customers

A furious gym owner hit Facebook because he banned his transformation video from his dedicated customers because the content offends people.

Mark Mathie, who runs the Wikedbodz gym at Surfers Paradise in Queensland, shared the & # 39; before-and-after & # 39; snaps of his participants in a video slide to show their remarkable results after a 12-week challenge.

But the social media giant warned Mr. Mathie after blocking his paid ad because this photo contains & # 39; s that are & # 39; too much & # 39; focus on bodies.

& # 39; This ad is not running because it uses images that focus too much on someone's body or part of a body (for example, focusing on abdominal muscles or abdominal fat & # 39 ;, Facebook said.

& # 39; This allows users to feel bad about themselves and goes against our core value of promoting a positive global community … What to do now: Avoid images with close-ups of specific body parts from before and after photo & # 39 ; s. & # 39;

Mr. Mathie claimed that he reacted furiously to the & # 39; politically correct & # 39; Facebook response because & # 39; we now cannot show any kind of healthy promotion in case we insult overweight, unhealthy people & # 39 ;.

Do you find it & # 39; for & # 39; and & # 39; after & # 39; offensive content?

A Facebook Australia spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: & We have community standards that specify what is and isn't allowed on Facebook.

& # 39; But when it comes to ads on Facebook, we have a higher set of standards for what content can be included in an ad. Our advertising policy is more restrictive because they receive a paid distribution. This policy clearly states that advertisements must not contain "before-and-after" images or cause negative self-perception by focusing on someone's personal characteristics. & # 39;

In his video posted on Facebook, Mr. Mathie broke out in the social media chain.

& # 39; I have been trying to promote wellness for 21 years. All I ever want to do is promote well-being so that someone is the best version of themselves, & he said.

& # 39; What I want to try to get out is if a person sees the video and goes & # 39; look at the results these people have achieved, I can do that myself & # 39 ;, if they get the confidence to come in and change their lives, then I am happy. & # 39;

What is Facebook's terms and conditions?

A Facebook Australia spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: & We have community standards that specify what is and isn't allowed on Facebook.

& # 39; But when it comes to ads on Facebook, we have a higher set of standards for what content can be included in an ad. Our advertising policy is more restrictive because they receive a paid distribution.

& # 39; This policy clearly states that ads are not & # 39; before-and-after & # 39; images may contain or cause negative self-perception by focusing on one's personal characteristics. & # 39;

Mr. Mathie claimed Facebook posted his post because it focused too much on the abdominal area and showed some belly fat, which may make some viewers feel uncomfortable.

& # 39; Are you seriously serious? Nothing has ground my gears anymore, & he said.

& # 39; So we don't offend fat people because you showed people who were fat that became lean? Has the world come that far, where does it end?

& # 39; This day and age has gone crazy. When do we stop insulting people? & # 39;

Mr. Mathie wondered what social influencers made that made edited photos & # 39; s of their transformation different from & # 39; real & # 39; people who & # 39; unprocessed & # 39; documented images.

& # 39; We have male and female influencers who push Photoshop to the limit, they don't even look that way, and we have teenage boys trying to look like someone who doesn't even look like that – but that's all right, & # 39, he said.

But the owner was shocked when Facebook decided to destroy his paid advertisement in the midst of the fear that it could & # 39; users be bad about themselves & # 39;

& # 39; No unprocessed images, No Photoshop, no photos of bulls, no unprocessed photos & of someone who has improved his life from A to B to convince people & # 39; that is also possible & # 39 ;.

& # 39; But you can't do that because you could offend a fat person. But no problems "go yourself and Photoshop, sell your 10-week ab program that absolutely does everything."

Mr. Mathie said he no longer felt that he could post unedited inspirational photos of the incredible training results of his customers without offending anyone.

& # 39; So where do we draw the line today about insulting people? & # 39; he said.

& # 39; It has gone completely crazy to the point where you cannot post a "before" and "after" photo of someone trying to improve their life because you are going to offend someone. & # 39;
