There's a big controversy over an unusual image of late Golden Girl Bea Arthur.

A topless portrait of the actress sold for nearly $2 million at Christie's Auction House.

The controversy came when media outlets posted the story on Facebook.

The Menlo Park company pulled the plug on dozens of user accounts claiming they violated Facebook's terms. The social media site doesn't allow nude photos.

Only after contacting Facebook directly and pointing out it was a painting, were the accounts unlocked.
