Redbubble - Inappropriate Content Warning - You Complete Me - Trump and Vlad

I’ve had this image on The Cranky Monkey Red Bubble page for a few years, with no orders ever being placed for it. I just received notice from Red Bubble that they are taking the image down because it is “inappropriate.”

I don’t care as no one has ever bought the image, but I do think it is funny now after Russia has invaded Ukraine, they deem it inappropriate. And, come on, what is inappropriate about this image?

It could just be a coincidence that the image was flagged two weeks into the war, so I’ve decided to test it and do the same image except with Kim Jong-Un instead. Let us see how long it takes to get taken down.

Notice: They don't tell me what of the list of community guidelines the image violated.   


Kim Jong-Un and Donald Take-down

It turns out, that they were pretty quick at taking down the second image of Don and Kim. One day later I received a notice they were removing the image. Again, not super clear what policy it violates, but again, not important enough for me to find out. 

Kim Jong-Un and Donald

The one thing that does annoy me is that I put time into creating the images for no reason other than to turn them into a blog post.
