Parler Needs To Moderate Illegal Content or Remain Removed From Apple App Store.
“The processes Parler has put in place to moderate or prevent the spread of dangerous and illegal content have proved insufficient,” Apple told Parler. “Specifically, we have continued to find direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action in violation of Guideline 1.1 – Safety – Objectionable Content.”
Parler tries to balance freedom of speech for users who have become disenfranchised by other the increasing censorship of platforms such as youtube. However, Parler’s more loose reigns has caused extremist groups such as neo-Nazis and white supremacists to flood their platform.
“Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety,” Apple said in a statement to CNN Business. “We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues.”
According to CNN, Parler CEO John Matze wrote in a message on his platform that Apple “will be banning Parler until we give up free speech, institute broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook and we become a surveillance platform by pursuing guilt of those who use Parler before innocence.”
The platform has received extra attention since Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms announced the banning of President Donald Trump.
Parler was removed from the Google Play Store, Friday.
