Did Facebook temporarily suspend a gay porn star for posting a picture of him and his husband kissing?

The Huffington Post reports:

Jesse Jackman certainly thinks so. The Boston-based adult film actor took to Twitter on Tuesday, claiming Facebook suspended his account because of a fairly innocuous kissing photo between himself and husband Dirk Caber.

Though the profile was eventually restored, a Facebook spokesperson said the site was looking into Jackman’s complaint.In a series of tweets throughout the day on Tuesday, Jackman created a timeline of events. According to his feed, trouble started after he posted a photo of himself and Caber on Oct. 8. That photo was followed by a smattering of homophobic death threats from Facebook users, Jackman said.

In an interview with SFist, Jackman wrote that he had “received multiple public death threats after posting this photo, endured countless homophobic slurs, and received dozens upon dozens of hate-filled messages, and yet Facebook did nothing about those disgusting comments, choosing to censor love instead of hate.”

Jackman also posted screenshots on Twitter of some threatening comments he said were posted to his Facebook, but not before his story inspired a twitter hashtag, #FacebookKissOff, which is being used by Twitter users outraged by Jackman’s experiences.
