Facebook Won't Remove This Woman's Butthole As a Business Page

"This unofficial Page was created because people on Facebook have shown interest in this place or business. It's not affiliated with or endorsed by anyone associated with Samantha Rae Anna Jespersen's Butthole."

Samantha Jespersen never wanted her butthole to be the first thing that came up when someone googled her name. But to her horror, she discovered "Samantha Rae Anne Jespersen's Butthole" -- a Facebook business page -- was the very first result when she googled her name.

The Page was created in 2012, when she was only 15 years old. But Jespersen, now 23 and a professional baker, didn't notice it until 2015, when she searched her name. Her reaction was "What the fuck?" "How did this happen?" she told BuzzFeed News.

Jespersen had no idea how the Page was created. She didn't make it herself, and she doesn't know anyone who would have made it on her behalf. [...] Some users suggested that perhaps some friends had created an "interest" in her butthole on their own Facebook profiles as a joke, and this triggered a Page to be created automatically.

To date, the "business" of Jespersen's butthole has no reviews (though it invites them), and no Stories have been added to it. [...]

The exact street address of the so-called business isn't listed, but the pin on the map shows the precise location of her former home (she and her family no longer live there).

What has really vexed Jespersen is that she's been unable to get it taken down. Since she discovered the Page in 2015, she's reported it several times -- but Facebook has said it isn't in violation of its community standards. [...]

"I feel like if anybody has found it, it would probably feel way too weird to talk to me about it," she said. "And if I didn't get a job over it, they definitely wouldn't call me and say, 'Hey, found the Page about your butthole, not going to hire you, bye.'"

And the oh-so-predictable punchline:

(Facebook removed the Page after this article was published).

    Not speaking from personal experience, but BookFace was probably violating a bunch of laws displaying a 15 year olds butt hole, despite what they said.

      I get the impression the butthole was only referenced.

        BRB, seeing if I can tag the floating plastic Pacific garbage patch with "Donald Trump's Butthole." Do you have to put an LLC after it to count as a business?

      You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding.

    ...and now the first items on a search of her name are all articles about how there used to be a FB business listing for her butthole. Much better. Maybe that will eventually go away though and she can forget about her whole butthole business and move on.

    Maybe she should create a page called Mark Zuckerberg's Butthole, but would anyone notice the difference?

    I am now substituting “Butthole as a Business” every time I hear “Software as a Service”
