"There is no place on Facebook for content that is hateful, threatening, or incites violence, and we will not tolerate material deemed to be genuinely or directly harmful. We react quickly to remove reported language or images that violate our terms and we encourage people to report questionable content using links located throughout the site," the email said.

"However, as you may expect in any diverse community of more than a billion people, we occasionally see people post distasteful content or make crude attempts at humor," the email said. "While it may be vulgar and offensive, distasteful content on its own does not violate our policies. We do require that any such page be clearly marked -- so users are aware that the content may be in poor taste."

Hendren still wants to help combat inappropriate content on Facebook, but is relieved to be off the social media site.

"I'm happy to be off of it," she said. "I don't hang out with people who think rape is funny. Why would I want to put myself in an environment where that happens?"
