'Slut' Facebook page created by Queensland university students taken offline after prompting worldwide outrage

Sydney, Oct. 12 (ANI): A controversial Facebook site created by two Queensland university students has been taken offline after it sparked outrage across the globe.

The page, "(Controversial Humor) 12 year old slut memes", had 216,000 likes by the time it was shut down earlier on Friday.

The page apparently called for users to submit photographs of young girls deemed to be "sluts", and encouraged them to comment on the images, prompting worldwide anger, the Herald Sun reports.

Until today, the two men have brazenly defied pressure to shut down the website even openly declaring in posts that: "As long as there are sluts, we will put them in their place. Keep the submissions coming guys. We're not going anywhere," the report said.

But it would seem Facebook, or the men themselves, had a change of heart and shut down the Facebook page, it added. (ANI)
