We are always scanning through Facebook and today we were shocked to see a post from our buddy and Cajun music star Jamie Bergeron talking about his friend who was shut down by Facebook.

Bergeron said in his post that his friend was put in Facebook jail over using the word “Coonass” in one of his posts.

According to Bergeron, his friend Rick Lagneaux was banned from using his account for 24 hours by Facebook for using the word Coonass in one of his post.

Back a couple years ago, Jamie Bergeron bought the rights to the term “Registered Coonass”.  Now obviously Facebook thinks it’s a bad word and banned his friend.
