Medium/Isis AnchaleeYou might remember Isis Anchalee as the female engineer who started the #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign earlier this year after an advertisement featuring her sparked controversy online over what a female engineer "should look like."
Now, the 22-year-old says she's been blocked from using Facebook because of her first name, Isis.
"Facebook thinks I'm a terrorist," Anchalee explained in a tweet on Tuesday. "Apparently sending them a screenshot of my passport is not good enough for them to reopen my account."
Here's the tweet.
Facebook thinks I'm a terrorist. Apparently sending them a screenshot of my passport is not good enough for them to reopen my account.— Isis Anchalee (@isisAnchalee) November 17, 2015

@isisAnchalee That is just ridiculous. As a programmer I appreciate automation. And this is too much, too far.— Thorin Schmidt (@ThorinMSchmidt) November 17, 2015
