Kate Middleton kicked off Facebook
A woman in England is upset after she was kicked off Facebook for pretending to be Kate Middleton.
The only problem is that she’s actually Kate Middleton.
According to BBC News, the Kate Middleton kicked off Facebook had signed up for the social network about two years ago.
She found out she was booted from the social network as she prepared to send a message to some friends. After hitting ‘Send’ she was asked to log in. But no matter how many times she tried logging in, she couldn’t get in.
A Facebook message said she had made a fake account, which was disabled for impersonation. Facebook has not confirmed to the BBC whether or not she was actually immitating the bride.
The clock is ticking for this Kate Middleton to get her Facebook account reinstated. The ‘Book says it makes the occasional mistake and is working to fix the problem.
Perhaps they could work to shut down some of the other Kate Middleton’s on Facebook. I did a quick search and found dozens.
It’s not yet known if the real Kate Middleton (er, the other one is real too – so the soon-to-be-royal Kate) has a Facebook profile. If not, someone should make a parody profile page like one of these.
Do you think Kate from Kent should have her Facebook account restored? Have you ever dealt with a fake account?
