The other day, we heard that Facebook rejected a Gris trailer advert based on the image above. Devolver Digital said the ad was shot down due to sexually suggestive imagery. Today Facebook has commented on the matter to Polygon, and they say the reasoning first discussed was not true.

Facebook said that it was actually a link out from the video to Devolver Digital’s Instagram that caused the trouble. Turns out there's some imagery with nudity on Devolver Digital's Instagram, and Facebook didn't want people clicking out and seeing that. Seems like something Devolver Digital could fix, but we have no word on if they will.
