(Newser) – Amid an outcry from parents, Facebook has quickly killed a page seeking the world's "Most Beautiful Teen." The page hosted a contest that sought teenagers' photos and had amassed a collection of sometimes suggestive photos, ABC News reports. The pictures garnered comments like "her nose is too big" and "I would not touch with a ten foot pole." In a statement, Facebook said it does not "tolerate bullying" and takes "action on content reported to us which we categorize as such."
