Wow, that's disappointing.  So you can call Mark Zuckerburg and ask him to clear the cache at Facebook or you can fix it yourself, here's how.

The Facebook debugger has two great features.  You can test your link and get the same broken result and you can clear the cache at Facebook.  This is good because you can also retest after you clear the cache and see that it's fixed.

Retest using the link again using the debugger and you're all good 👍
