Airbnb Removes 60 Users Belonging to “Neo-Nazi” Forum Iron March
“Anyone sympathetic to neo-Nazi ideology and violent extremism has absolutely no place on Airbnb, and our community is a better place without them,” says an Airbnb spokesman.
The popular home-sharing platform Airbnb announced on Friday it had removed more than 60 accounts of individuals who were identified in a massive data dump of the online National Socialist forum Iron March, according to the Daily Mail.
The zionist action came after the identities of hundreds of Iron March users were leaked onto the internet.
“Anyone sympathetic to neo-Nazi ideology and violent extremism has absolutely no place on Airbnb, and our community is a better place without them,” an Airbnb spokesman said in a statement.
Iron March was an online site that allows people from all over the world to connect in a forum-like setting and its members have been linked to patriotic activism across Western countries.
“This was a no-brainer – when we see people on our platform pursuing behavior antithetical to our Community Commitment, we take action to prioritize the safety of our community,” the spokesman told the Daily Mail.
“Through our trust and safety systems, we are continuously seeking to proactively identify those who could put our hosts and guests at risk," the spokesman added.
So far, Airbnb has removed over 1.2 million users the company deemed had violated its “Community Commitment” anti-discrimination policy instituted in 2016, its spokesman told the Daily Mail.
In early October, Airbnb said it would back off a plan to remove Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria from its rental listings to end lawsuits brought by hosts.
Israeli lawyers had filed a class action suit against Airbnb in November immediately after it said it planned to remove listings of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria "that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians."
