Nineteen-year-old Kendall Jones started receiving attention when she began posting pictures of dead lions, elephants and leopards that she killed to Facebook.
On Thursday, Facebook removed some of the images that violated their standards.
In a statement, it said it removes 'reported content that promotes poaching of endangered species, the sale of animals for organized fight or content that includes extreme acts of animal abuse'.
Jones' photos showed her posing with bagged zebras, hugging a dead leopard, and smiling beside elephants she had killed.
One particular photo, in which she posed alongside an extremely endangered rhinoceros, had her critics especially steaming, but the Texas Tech cheerleader says it was alive and well.
However, despite public backlash, Jones continues to advocate for the killing of exotic animals in Africa. When her “public figure” Facebook page launched in February — long before she was a public figure — Jones did nothing but post jokes mocking vegetarians and conservationists. (Ironically, her Twitter banner quotes Voltaire: “Who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.”)
As Mahatma Gandhi once said "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
