A cafe owner has had a post removed from the internet after it was deemed too offensive.

Jo Evans-Pring, 63, owner of Fannys Rest Stop Cafe wanted to promote her faggots so started paying for advertising on Google.

Within a few weeks of launching her initial campaign, faggot sales rose significantly so she so realising she was onto something she decided to put a picture of the food on her website.

But then she got an email from Google saying the faggots with peas and onion gravy had been removed for containing inappropriate and offensive content.

Faggots is a traditional dish, long popular in the English Midlands and South and Mid Wales, made from minced off-cuts and offal.

Jo Evans-Pring, 63, was promoting her award-winning funky retro music diner of eight years - Fanny's Rest Stop Caf??. Self-confessed technophobe Jo turned to pal Chris Barnbrook for help - and the pair set up a website, Facebook page - and even began paying for adverts on Google. Within just a few weeks, the mum-of-four, of Newport, Wales, found that her business sales were soaring once again.

But the word faggot was misconstrued by Google administrators to refer to the pejorative term of abuse referring to gay men.

She said: People need to spend their time dealing with real problems, not things like whether or not the word faggots when selling that meal is hateful.

There comes a time where businesses need to reinvent themselves, and – after eight years of running the shop – I decided now was one of those times.

Fannys has been doing really well because of the internet campaign. Weve noticed a big change in the past couple of weeks.

People have been coming from a little further afield because were paying for adverts when they google for places to eat. Theyve loved coming to Fannys because its fun and retro.

I posted an advert on the website for Fannys faggots with peas and onion gravy, a pretty traditional meal and one of my favourites, on the 27th.

But the next day I got an email from Google saying theyd removed a post of ours, and then referred us to their posting contents policy.

Me and Chris had a look, and realised theyd moved the faggots one – and we couldnt think it was for any reason other than it having the word “faggots” in it.
