Reddit Removes Violent Content Pages

Posted by at 12:14 pm on October 26, 2017

Reddit has closed down several extremist forums after updating its policy regarding violent content.

The newly banned and removed pages include r/NationalSocialism, r/Nazi, r/whitesarecriminals and r/far_right.

Reddit’s new policy says:

“Do not post content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people.”

Material that glorifies or encourages the abuse of animals, such as bestiality, is also now being removed.

In 2015, Reddit updated its policy to deter harassment – a move that resulted in the shutting down of forums including r/fatpeoplehate.
