Chris Lilley Banned From Facebook, Fans Start Twitter Campaign

Written by Kiel Egging on June 17, 2012

A Twitter campaign to get Chris Lilley un-blocked from Facebook is gaining momentum after someone reported a ‘nuts’ pic of the Angry Boys star on his page.

According to Ninemsn, Facebook’s honchos slapped a 30-day ban on Lilley after the photo – believed to be featuring his characters Nathan and Daniel Sims doing their ‘sneaky nuts’ joke – caught the ire of a user.

Daniel and Nathan’s ‘sneaky nuts’ joke saw them secretly flash their genitals when posing for photos during Angry Boys episodes.

Lilley tweeted news of the ban yesterday – writing: “Banned from Facebook cause someone reported a nuts pic”.

It led to the hashtag #FreeChrisLilleysNuts being created – and it’s getting spread quickly.

Heck, we’ll even add it onto our Twitter link of this story.
