Spotify CEO Clarifies Hate Speech Policy

Published

on

Spotify has been under fire for the implementation of their Hate Speech Policy.

After the streaming service announced the changes to the platform, the company began removing artists from their platform. Florida rapper XXXTentacion was added to the list. He is accused but not convicted of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and other serious allegations.

The internet backlash happened when R.Kelly’s music still appeared on Spotify. R.Kelly is accused of multiple sex acts with minors and being the leader of a sex cult.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek admitted the company’s new policy was not deployed properly. The policy is not supposed to police one artist.

“The whole goal with this was to make sure that we didn’t have hate speech,” said Ek. “It was never about punishing one individual artist or even naming one individual artist.”

XXXTentacion music will be reinstated to the service after further investigation.

Let us know if Spotify should remove artist accused of crimes outside of hate speech.
