Women’s Right Group Calls For Spotify’s  Removal Of Music By Chris Brown, Eminem, 6ix9ine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and More

-blogged by @theRealAlexisDanielle

Just days ago Spotify made the move to remove R. Kelly and XXXTentacion’s catalog from its curated and algorithmically generated playlists after pressure from a women’s rights organization. Now, another women’s rights advocacy group is calling for the same to be done to multiple other artists.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In a letter to Spotify, the group Ultraviolet called for the removal of music by artists like #Eminem, #6ix9ine, and #ChrisBrown to be removed as well.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“[These] two men are not the only abusers on your platform. We implore you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote,” the organization’s executive director Shaunna Thomas wrote.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse,” she continued. “That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist.”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The move to remove the music of #RKelly and XXXTentacion came under Spotify’s new hate content and hateful conduct policy. The company has not spoken out on the newest request.

  1. This will never happen they make wayyyy too much money off Breezy and Eminem

  2. Oh, then go through the whole catalog and remove everyone who has wronged women. Jerry Lee Lewis married a 13 yr old, Elvis married a 14 yr old. That’s sick!!! Not going to act like what they did was okay cause they married their victims.
    When does this stop? So we take remove artist that have done women wrong? Then what? We remove songs that encourage these behaviors?
