You see scandalous photos on Facebook all the time, but can someone's profile be too sexy? In the case of 17-year-old aspiring reality TV star and teen bride Courtney Stodden, Facebook said yes -- and then took it back. Due to what Facebook deemed "inappropriate sexual conduct," Courtney's profile and fan pages were temporarily deactivated last week. But on Friday, her pages were reinstated and Facebook issued an apologized to Courtney, claiming that her page was taken down "in error." Once her profile was back up, Courtney -- who is best known for being the wife of 51-year-old Lost actor Doug Hutchison -- immediately uploaded a provocative photo of herself accompanied by the caption, "Dripping with dazzling diamonds -- Bikini Style -- as I get ready to crawl into the pool for a sensuous dip... Meow! ;-."

Courtney's mom, Krista Keller, told E!: "There is nothing on her page you wouldn't find anywhere on Facebook! She has never done any nudity. Not a breast, not even a butt cheek. It's just her in a bathing suit!"

Courtney has responded to these recent events by arguing that Facebook should be more concerned with real issues like cyberbullying, rather than removing profiles with bikini photos. In a video posted on her YouTube channel, she spoke out against digital abuse. Watch it below.

Do you agree with Courtney -- should Facebook be more concerned with cyberbullying than "sexy" photos? Do you think Facebook should have deactivated Courtney's page, or do you think it's okay for teenagers to post provocative photos? We want to know your take!
