A FACEBOOK user is bemused after the social media giant removed a photo of a roast chicken because it violated policy on nudity.

Gladstone's James Wragg often posts photos of his meals, and asks his Facebook friends, "What are you eating today?"

But this time he logged on to find a message that his dinner had "violated community policy on nudity".

"I'm still just wondering why the hell would they do this," he said.

The Facebook message said he had violated their policies because the chicken was not wearing clothes.

His response was to draw a bikini on the chicken - a picture that was also taken down. 

James thinks Facebook should refocus its efforts on people running afoul of the law, rather than removing his photo of a roast chicken.
