On July 9, Facebook deleted the hunting photos from Texas Tech Cheerleader Kendall Jones’ page. Outrage ensued because the Facebook page “Kill Kendall Jones” was allowed to stand. After a tsunami of complaints, Facebook was forced to delete the “Kill Kendall Jones” page too.
On July 5, Breitbart News reported that nineteen-year-old Jones was drawing the ire of anti-hunters by posting photos from her African hunting trips on her Facebook page. This ire included death threats and wishes that Jones would be the next one killed in one of her hunts.
According to Twitchy.com, Facebook gave in to the anti-hunters and deleted the photos on Jones’ page on July 9, but they let the page “Kill Kendall Jones” stand.
But after public outcry, the “Kill Kendall Jones” page was pulled later on the 9th as well. In its place a simple message says: “This page has been removed.”
