The Bitche is BACK! Facebook restores official page for a French town called Bitche after accidentally removing it because of its ‘offensive’ name
The tech giant’s algorithms mistakenly removed the French town’s official page
But the Bitche is back – Facebook has since apologised and restored the page
The town’s mayor criticised an over-reliance on tech to detect offensive terms
Facebook mistakenly took down the official page for a French town called Bitche, after its algorithms dubbed the name as offensive.
The official page for Bitche, a town in northeastern France near the border with Germany, was removed on March 19, but has only just been addressed by Facebook.
Facebook France said the mistake was made ‘following an incorrect analysis on the part of our systems’.
It has since apologised for the embarrassing error and restored the page.
Earlier this year, Facebook apologised for banning users from mentioning National Trust beauty spot Devil’s Dyke near Brighton after branding it ‘hate speech’.

The statement, translated to English, reads: ‘Facebook had censored our Bitche City page.
‘We appealed and tried to contact Facebook through various means, including through contact forms and private messages on Facebook France’s page.’
Laurent Solly, President General Manager of Facebook France, personally contacted Bitche Mayor Benoît Kieffer to inform him that the page has been published again and to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The Bitche is back: The town’s official page is once again active, and on Tuesday posted a statement regarding the debacle
The charming French town of Bitche is known for its large citadel originating from a castle built at the beginning of the 13th century
Kieffer said: ‘The name of our town seems to suffer from a bad interpretation … the most astonishing thing is that Facebook took so long to correct this.’
‘What has happened to the town of Bitche demonstrates the insufficient and limited moderating tools that only the human gaze can appreciate,’ he said.

How Facebook’s Invalid Names Work?
Ville de Bitche is a town located in north-eastern France.
“What’s in a name?” Shakespeare famously asked. Quite a lot apparently, and a city in France learnt this the hard way. The residents of Bitche in northeastern France were taken aback when the city’s Facebook page was deleted. The reason attributed to the action was that the page had violated the terms and conditions of the social media platform. This stumped the city, as they were quite sure that they had done nothing to warrant this move. Soon, they realised they only had the city’s name to blame.
According to a report on Politico, the city’s official page named “Ville de Bitche (City of Bitche)” was pulled down, out of the blue, on March 19. To figure out why this happened and put forth an appeal to restore the page, Valerie Degouy, the city’s communication manager, attempted to contact Facebook.
“I tried to reach out to Facebook in every possible way, through different forms, but there’s nothing (I could) do,” Degouy said. Following this, she went on to create a new page titled “Mairie 57230,” based on Bitche’s postal code. Degouy explained that they had faced issues even while creating the page in 2016.
This peculiar problem that Bitche was faced with soon gained media traction. Speaking to CNN, Benoit Kieffer, mayor of Ville de Bitche, said, “We received a Facebook message and we also noticed that it was missing. At first, you wonder, was there a technical problem? However, with the length of time, it can be considered real censorship.”
Speaking about the name, he added, “Bitchois and Bitchoises are proud to wear this name. The Americans already wore it proudly with a touch of humour of course.”
