  5. That is disgusting!! Its a mother’s right to want to show off her child and fb is the modern way to do so. Who are these people to tarnish this little boys memory by being so bigoted??

  7. I watched the video and it was so tasteful and beautiful. I think this should be allowed and how about get all the violence to animal and pics of weapons and lowlifes that post disgusting pics of facebook instead of targeting someone that wanted to share a bit of their life that so happy for a very short time. Shame on you facebook

  9. Such a tragidy for this young mother to go through. She could have fallen apart but instead showed love to her newborn in his first and final moments. Well done her for her love and dignity and making every moment precious….Face book and the people slating her should be well ashamed of themselves….

  11. I just watched the video I was so moved by it, but also felt the love this couple have for their beautiful baby boy and wanted to share this with everyone. It’s the most magical thing in the world to bring a child in to the world. My heart goes out to this couple, FB should be ashamed of themselves 🙁

  13. FACEBOOK YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO MANKIND !!! WHAT SICK TWISTED PEOPLE YOU ARE, A LITTLE BABY WITH ANY KIND OF ABNORMALITY IS NORMAL AND ANY MOTHER OF A CHILD BORN WITH A DEFECT WOULD STILL WANT TO SHOW HIM OFF, HE IS HER CHILD FOR GODS SAKE, SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE LEFT FACEBOOK AND MARE MORE ARE FOLLOWING. GET A GRIP AND START DOING SOMETHING SENSIBLE AND DECENT JUST FOR ONCE !!! gET THE PORN AND VIOLENCE OFF OR IS THAT WHAT FB IS REALLY ABOUT ??? IS IT RUN BY A BUNCH OF SICK TWISTED PEOPLE WHO USE NORMAL STUFF AS A COVER UP AS TO WHAT YOU ARE REALLY ABOUT ????

  14. There’s a grieving page with photos of dead babies on it that’s not been closed, even with loads of vile comments complaining it remains. It’s how they cope, by sharing, this woman Should be able to share & anyone who doesn’t like it can just click ‘hide story’ or ‘block person’ simples! Why report her photo (because that’s how fb usually finds these pics) a so called Friend reporting it!

  16. Breaking News??
    Grayson was born on 15 February 2012, not 2014.

    Facebook apologised at the time, said that the photo did not breach its standards, said that the account was banned in error, re-instated the picture and restored the account.

    Do you not check anything you “report”?

  20. I wad banned for 12 hours for replying to a troll ‘grow up and get a life’ but because also tagged their name.. I got banned for 12 hours… dont see me kicking up a fuss about it …. lets clarify too . when you get on facebook its only you cant update any posts or comment on any posts etc. not exactly banned is it really because can still go on and see what others have put up and read articles etc. … and seriously spare only 24 hours come on…. I wouldnt agree to a photo of a child in only a hat neither do you know how many peodos and trolls are on here. so easy for them click download too as not all things are private no more with all these so called updates and changes facebook keeps making. it was fine how it was years ago… fact is they just cant cope its too big … but seriously grow up complaining because got banned from facebook … its not because the photo got removed its because got banned for only 24 hours . they remove comments and posts all the time but you never noticed until got banned.

  24. read further up folks there was an apology and both the account and the photo reinstated while it not not excuse the “mistake” in the first place it would only of been looked at if other facebook users reported it in the first place 🙁 so sad that some one or my guess a number of people felt the need to add to this poor mother grief by putting her through this .. it is a social media site you are always going to see shit you don;t like that is why there is a block button or simply scroll past no one forces you to look at anything on her .. R.I.P little one and I hope you family can find the strength to get through the hard times ahead x x

  25. What n were is the reason for anyone reporting this poor family’s loving n beautiful video of there little boys short but very sweet little life, it’s ok for some of the s**t people post on here!!! I’ve reported videos of dogs fighting kids been abused which do need reporting!!! F/B should have some kind of admin 24/7 to be watching everything that gets posted and decide if it’s ok to get posted!!! Only then nothing like this would happen again to people like this poor Mammy n Daddy who only wanted to share there baby’s short little life, RIP little Grayson fly with the angels baby boy

  26. I watched the video, it’s so moving, heartbreaking and he was beautiful. My condolences to the Mother, Father and family. I don’t see why facebook took it off, overreaction I think.

  29. How sad for the family, and how proud they looked of their beautiful baby. It says so much about their love and strength and shows how shallow and without any moral compass the people who decided this video could not be shown Shame on you Facebook..
