Facebook apologized Tuesday for ‘mistakenly' banning a profile picture frame paying tribute to the massacre in Tiananmen Square after Hong Kong Professional Teachers' Union Chief Executive Fung Ka-keung submitted it for review, the Hong Kong Free Press reports.

Fung made the photo frame, which called for justice for Tiananmen protestors and an end to the "dictatorial regime" in China. It was rejected on Friday for failing to meet the company's terms and policies and because it "belittles, threatens or attacks a particular person, legal entity, nationality or group."

Fung submitted another frame on Saturday with the text "Don't forget June 4" across a photo of a candle, but that frame is still under review by the social media giant.

"The frame was disapproved incorrectly. We apologize for this mistake and have let the user know we approved his submission," a Facebook representative told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Fung said the response was insufficient.

"Facebook should give an explanation, since it hasn't approved another frame and is taking an unusually long period of time to review it," he said.

"I think if I only submitted one frame and it was not approved, it might be a technical problem or an issue with the art. But we have a frame that was originally rejected, and another that is still under review after a long time – it makes people suspect the decision might be political."
