After the pictures he took of himself with the iPhone he stole started popping up on the phone's owner's photo stream:
iPhone thief's Disney cruise adventure goes on public display in owner's Facebook album | The Verge

Then the phone's owner posted the pics on Facebook:

Hilarity ensues.

The thief (or receiver of stolen property, whatever) perhaps is getting what he deserves. However any number of probable innocents appear to be being, via Facebook, subjected to international embarrassment and probably worse. Facebook really is horrific from a privacy standpoint.

Funny how bad karma got him! Well, also hope that the girl would get her phone asap. Pity the one who gets or buys that stolen phone though. Hope he or she wouldn't be put on the limelight.

By the way, I second to sierradragon.
It is true that Facebook, (especially YouTube) if used then abused, will lead to a worldwide humiliation.

Who banned me? Why was I banned? Really, no communication whatsoever and then you kick out a mild mannered member?
What did I do wrong?

I can't even appeal at all to get unblocked?
