Playboy ripped out one of its pages, the one on Facebook.The pornographic magazine’s Chief Creative Officer Cooper Hefner, son of founder Hugh, announced on Twitter that the social network’s “content guidelines and corporate policies continue contradicting our values.”

He said that Facebook is “sexually repressive” but that the move comes now because “learning of the recent meddling in a free U.S. election further demonstrates another concern we have of how they handle users’ data — more than 25 million of which are Playboy fans — making it clear to us that we must leave the platform.”

Playboy’s main Facebook page was taken down as of early Wednesday, though its versions for different countries such as Germany and the Philippines were still available.

The deactivated or deleted accounts are the latest to join the #deletefacebook movement, where criticisms that came out last year about Mark Zuckerberg’s platform wanting to addict users compounded by revelations that the Trump-linked consultancy Cambridge Analytica was able to acquire data on tens of millions of users for “psychographic profiles” designed to use people’s personalities to manipulate them with ads.

A large chunk of Facebook’s business model is using people’s data to sell targeted ads to advertisers, and scrutiny of it has led its stock to drop by close to 20% in the last two weeks.

Playboy is the latest to stop participating in the social network created by Mark Zuckerberg (pictured).

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk pulled the pages for his SpaceX and Tesla projects last week,

Speaker company Sonos said that it was pulling advertising from Facebook for a week, and donating the money to organization Access Now for its upcoming conference on people’s digital rights.

For its part, Playboy has also been in an effort to come to grips with society’s bright, beautiful future on the internet, where Louvres worth of smutty images are available for free.

The company made headlines in March 2016 when it stripped nudity from its magazine full of “playmates,” though hopped back to its traditional format a year later.
