#Facebook Debunks Rumor That Pedophiles Are Behind Cartoon Profile Campaign


Swirling rumors that pedophiles are behind a viral #Facebook campaign are unfounded, according to a company spokesman.

The campaign, which has been actively gaining momentum in the past month, urges users to swap a cartoon character for their usual profile picture and boasts more than 150,000 “likes” among its Facebook pages. The campaign was originally thought to be the work of a children’s advocacy group, but rumors sweeping across the web suggest it’s actually a front for pedophiles, said London tabloid The Daily Mail.
