Facebook caught heat recently when it deleted several hundred accounts belonging to self-described drag queens, other performers and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
The world’s biggest online social network has issued an apology to drag queens and the transgender community for deleting accounts that used drag names like Lil Miss Hot Mess rather than legal names such as Bob Smith.

Facebook has long required its users to go by their “real names” on the site for security purposes, to stand out from other social networks and so it can better target advertising to people.

Though Facebook’s real names policy isn’t changing, the way the social media giant enforces it might.

Marquise Jackson, the son of rapper/entrepreneur Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson

It was a very important day for Marquise, for as you know… there’s only ONE high school graduation.
