Facebook Accidentally Blocked This Girl Just Because Of Her "Name"!

Names or Surnames have created a lot of problems for certain ethnic groups over the period of past decade. However, it is really tough to agree with or justify any reason behind this.

What happened with this girl named Isis is sad.
