We have a story about a photo that Facebook didn’t want you to see.

The woman in this video had a double mastectomy. To hide the scars, she had this elaborate tattoo done on her chest.

And she allowed the artist to post it on Facebook. But the social networking site kept removing the post, saying it violated the no-nudity policy.

The company says it deserves to be seen because the woman is “brave and strong.”

Facebook has relented after it was overwhelmed by so many re-posts.

Watch Lionel weigh in on this story.
