Snap Chat has canceled all kinds of promotions promoting President Trump’s posts within Snapchat’s Discover feature.
The company announced in its recent statement that shares fell 2.5%. CEO Evan Spiegel said “We simply cannot promote accounts in America that are linked to people who incite racial violence, whether they do so on or off our platform,”
Spiegel said that the Snap Chat company is not promoting Trump’s content on its Discover platform.
In response, the Trump campaign accused Snap in a statement of “actively engaging in voter suppression.” It added in its statement that “Snapchat hates that so many of their users watch the President’s content and so they are actively engaging in voter suppression.”
Snap Chat’s move follows a decision by Microblogging site Twitter last week to begin adding content warning labels to some of Trump’s tweets, including one containing inaccurate claims about mail-in voting and another with a reference to looting and shooting protestors.
Facebook, meanwhile, has refused to tag or remove Trump’s recent incendiary posts about the protests.
Let it be known that various cities in the United States are witnessing the violent scenes after the killing of African American George Floyd by the police officer Derek Chauvin.
The killing of Floyd, which was taped on video and shows officer Derek Chauvin putting his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes, has led to widespread protests across the United States that have devolved in some cities into looting, arson and property destruction.
Derek Chauvin has been slapped with the charges of third-degree murder and manslaughter. Three other police officers have been fired.
Earlier World Golf Champion Tiger Woods also spoke against the killing of George Floyd.
