Tourism Australia censors kangaroo’s naughty bits for Facebook

I had to snicker when I found this “racy” photo of the Facebook-famous Kangaroo, Big Baz. It all started when Tourism Australia posted these censored photos on their Facebook page. Aussies responded with outrage that a wild animal’s genitals would be censored and posted for all to see.

The controversy gained loads of attention as debates were sparked over whether the photo was appropriate or whether it truly represented Australia. All that to say, the photo was a success. The team at Tourism Australia set out to create social media buz. And so they did. The Facebook responses are priceless.
