Spotify Removes “Hate Bands” from Streaming Library
“Not tolerated by us.”
Spotify was recently alerted to “hate bands” being available for streaming on the platform. Since then, they did the same as Apple and removed such content. Spotify even released a statement stating- “illegal content or material that favors hatred or incites violence against race, religion, sexuality or the like is not tolerated by us.” They went on to discuss the launch of a playlist titled “Patriotic Passions” “a soundtrack to an America worth fighting for” with music from Jimi Hendrix to Khalid.
