Facebook cancels ad for Robert Burns Celebration event

After an effective two day run, Facebook cancelled the ad of the Schiller Institute Chorus for its upcoming January 24th Robert Burns Birthday Celebration event.

The evidently offending text read, "It would be difficult to find anyone in any culture who has not heard or sung the heart warming song Auld Lang Syne to bring in the New Year, 'for old times sake.' While many recognize that it is associated with the National Poet of Scotland, Robert Burns, fewer know the role that 'Rabbie' played historically during the time of the American Revolution. Join us for an evening of poetry, song & dialogue."

The event is free and schedule to take place Sunday, January 24, 2021.
