Music giant Spotify has removed music from artists known as white supremacists.
In a statement, a spokeswoman for the world’s biggest streaming service explained that “illegal content or material that favours hatred or incites violence against race, religion, sexuality or the like is not tolerated by us.”
The removal comes on the back of a post by Digital Music News titled “I Just Found 37 White Supremacist Hate Bands on Spotify.”
“Spotify takes immediate action to remove any such material as soon as it has been brought to our attention,
“We are glad to have been alerted to this content — and have already removed many of the bands identified today, whilst urgently reviewing the remainder.” Per Billboard, Spotify is “also reviewing the possibility of blocking this type of content from future music recommendations.”
