ADL Statement Praising Spotify's Hateful Content Guidelines

New York, NY, May 10, 2018 … The Anti-Defamation League released a statement today welcoming Spotify’s new hateful content guidelines that prohibits any content promoting, advocating or inciting hatred or violence on their platform.

“All social platforms should have clear rules on hateful content for users to follow.  We are encouraged that Spotify has taken a step to join the many platforms that have been advising their users on hateful content, and we are pleased to consult with them in the creation of these rules.  We are especially heartened to see that their policies reflect both on-platform and off-platform hateful activity, highlighting the role that tech companies must play in discouraging real-world harm and threats.”

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Today it is the world’s leading organization combating anti-Semitism, exposing hate groups, training law enforcement on hate crimes, developing anti-bias education programs for students, countering cyber-hate and relentlessly pursuing equal rights for all.
