Facebook announced today that the company will be halting its creation of the new ‘Instagram Kids’ platform after discovering that Florida representative Matt Gaetz – who is under investigation for sex trafficking and sex with a minor – had somehow managed to obtain a beta testing profile.
Facebook says that although Gaetz was honest and uploaded a picture of himself for his profile that the facial recognition technology failed to identify him as a fully-grown adult.
“The system assumed that Mr. Gaetz was a toddler that had yet to grow into his massive head,” a Facebook representative confirmed. “So we cannot move forward with this project until we can figure out how to differentiate between small children and predatory man-babies.”
As of press time nobody in Gaetz’s office had responded to multiple requests for an interview because they were too busy trying to fight a ticket from Gaetz repeatedly driving too slowly while in a school zone.
