Not The Onion of the Day: A Minnesota man recently filed a lawsuit against his uncle for uploading an unflattering Christmas photo to Facebook.

In his harassment suit, Aaron Olson says his uncle posted childhood photos of him on Facebook, and proceeded to add “mean comments” underneath. Among the offending photos: “[Olson] posing in front of a Christmas tree.”

When confronted, the uncle, Randall LaBrie, agreed to untag Olson, but suggested that if he didn’t care for the photos “he should stay off Facebook.”

After the district court tossed out Olson’s request for a harassment restraining order against LaBrie, he took his case to the Court of Appeals, which also turned him down.

In its ruling, the court determined that mean comments “coupled with innocuous family photos” do not adversely effect “the safety, security, or privacy of another.”
