Snapchat will stop promoting President Trump's account in Discover: 'We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice'

"We are not currently promoting the President's content on Snapchat's discover platform," a Snap spokesperson told Business Insider. "We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover. Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America.

Trump's account on Snapchat is still public and visible to those who search for it or subscribe to it. However, it will not be promoted in Discover, the section that houses content from news outlets, production companies, and stories curated by the Snapchat employees condemning racism and inequality and calling for change. Spiegel discussed the company's approach toward curating Discover content in his memo to staff, although he did not call out Trump by name.

The move comes as Snapchat competitor Facebook, the world's largest social network, is embroiled in controversy over its handling of Trump's recent posts. Facebook has refused to take action against a post from Trump that included the phrase, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts." That

Twitter won’t autoban neo-Nazis because the filters may ban GOP politicians

BunkerBitch entire lifestyle needs to be shutdown


Americans 🙄 what can I say.

God bless 🙏 you Snapchat 🙏.

Thank you Snapchat

Good, Trump may be planning MARTIAL LAW as well.

'stop promoting in discovery'? how bout stop promoting altogether? delete the acct

I’m going to make a wild assumption and guess MirandaKerr using her voice had something to do with this. I might be wrong, or there might be a nugget of truth in it.

Thank you Snapchat

realDonaldTrump Excellent! The remaining platforms will follow. You are going to end up an old man in jail


Capitalism isnt Trumps fault. Bill Clinton and Joe Biden filled black neighborhoods with terroristic police armed with violence and punitive drug war laws. Selective, massive policing of blacks, and not whites, causes a false data set of black criminality. Dems are boot lickers.

Bravo 👏🏻

They should let jack borrow their balls.


Deleted my Facebook today useless social media platform with a grifter in charge !

brenbrenchie Good news 👍👍👍👏👏👏

Snapchat THANK YOU!!

4 years too late but .... better late than never I guess?






Sure am glad snapchat didn’t sell to Trumpbook/Facebook

Excellent! Hey, i think i'll check that app out. Show 'em some love for having a spine.

well Snapcaht better take some people of coloured accounts , superstars and pop stars accounts down to then

No one should be banned from any social media. You can’t call yourself a free speech platform and then ban people. First amendment is for everyone even for people you don’t agree with. Because if you ban one person they can ban you and eventually will.


Kinda late for that.

DrDonnaDemocrat Somehow, this will be seen as 'controversial'. THAT is what is wrong in this country. There is no 'controversy' when you are dealing with good and evil. What Snapchat is doing is GOOD. Eff you idiots that thinks evil needs a 'chance'.

About time!

It's 'We the people...' - not we the races. Racists focus on divisive terms like 'racism'. Respect all people - we are one human race!

What? Take the fucking account down!

Maybe it’s time for a Snapchat account and to finally delete my suspended Facebook account.

Good guy Snapchat

What about all the anti Semitic snaps?


Snapchat wasn’t all that anyways 😺

the only thing this guy should be snapping and chatting about on SC is whether he wiping front2back or back2front on his twitter throne

JoyAnnReid Well this is well said from the CEO. What the F is Facebook stilling doing? Advertisers just need to bail on FB. I think we would all agree that FB will ‘change’ their policy in a pun intended.

why wait

he will suffer without media. Cut the b astard off.

Yet they are fine with killing babies, democrat/communist are evil and cannot afford the truth.

Good for you Snapchat

Snapchat i expect this to also include every so called hollywood elite every rapper or sport figure. They incite more hate m ore division more bs than anyone

Thank you .😁

This is the right move considering it is a platform mostly used by younger generations compared to Facebook. And also actual morality you know... Snapchat

Twitter you should do the same!


Finally. This needs to continue to happen, I just wish they would have started this 3 1/2 years ago.

Well looks like I have to leave Facebook

Way overdue. Also, does anyone else think the guy in the picture looks a lot like JoshHolloway?

PrincessBravato .Facebook your turn

Hell yes

about time

Snapchat Thank you

Thank you.

Thank you

Fascist says who

Good step 👍

Trump loses credibility daily. That a publicly held media company wishes to reduce his amplification of hate means that we may be at a turning point.

AprilCupcake68 DeleteFacebookNow

Bravo, Snapchat! Definitely the right thing to do!

Will Snapchat also stop promoting radical accounts that promote their ideologies, or they only singling out realDonaldTrump ? 🤔

Now do .Facebook.


realDonaldTrump 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😢😢😂 they're all laughing at you GeorgeFloyd

Now if they would stop harassing the residents of Venice and stop their private police force and occupying all the affordable housing. How about becoming good citizens of Venice Snapchat?

Are you going to join Facebook or continue to look the other way?

ALL ARE COMPLICIT GOPFascistParty2020 EVERY 1 of you are failing America If you do not go after senatemajldr LindseyGrahamSC GOPLeader GOPChairwoman FoxNews Then you completely do not understand any thing happening Impeached Idiot gets away with none of this without THEM

communist censorship

Nobody uses Snapchat... 😒😒😒

This might be a good time for them to take out tik tok

JoyAnnReid Good way to immunize yourself against a FB takeover.


Thank you Snapchat . The right and honorable thing

realDonaldTrump FYI


Thank you Snapchat

Now Facebook , you’re next!

Don't know much about Snapchat but this is a really good move on their part and I thank them. Let's hope others follow!!!!!!

Hmmm “brave”. Seems like FB is the brave one for not taking action against an account that they determined wasn’t in violation of policy but a lot of people are pressuring them to action against.

i think I'll boycott instagram for snapchat after this


I love snap but the whole discover page is an agenda!

JoyAnnReid Just take it down. Forget this nonsense about 'Discover.' Just deny him access.

Well done!

Good for them! Now, if they REALLY wanna be cool, they should outright ban his orange ass :)

peachena Will they give the money back that they earned from it?

Half the crap they post should be muted.



JoyAnnReid Bravo!!!👏🏻👏🏻

'If anyone, including a politician, is saying things that can cause, that is calling for violence or could risk imminent physical harm.... we will take that content down.' Zuckerberg told AOC a few months ago.

It's media outlets inciting racial violence, showing the worst of mankind. Pretending that all racism is on Trump. That would be a nicely packaged scapegoat to put all of America's racism on a standing President of barely 4 years. Then censoring his content. Who are you people?

StandUp4Peace StandUp4Truth StandUp4US

JoyAnnReid He's been doing this since the launch of snapchat ans they just found out today? Money talks

They shouldnt pick and choose the voices they want to amplify.

I applaud your moral courage.

Thank you. ♥️♥️I see you and tweeter care about your country and its people..

Wow! First social media took sides now they are being judge also. Where are they when people on their platform abuse each other & might kill if given a chance, don't their conscience come then? They are just few laws away from extinction, they need to think rationally.


At least snap has balls! Well done!

JoyAnnReid Thank you!

Thank you Snapchat !


Thank you Jesus 🙏🏽

Twitter needs to do the same. Every page I go in the page is in my face to follow. It started over the last few days and his following is growing notably over the last week. Not a coincidence.

JoyAnnReid 👍🏽


JoyAnnReid THANK YOU! Excellent Snapchat snapchatsupport

Oh that’s gonna leave a mark.

Facebook, what are you waiting on

Looks like Facebook is the bad guy in all this and killing Democracy.

A social media platform built around thots and clout chasers is taking a stand huh? 😂😂😂 Tf out of here 🤡

Thank you! boycott ALL of president 45’s businesses. BlackLivesMatter2

JoyAnnReid Thanks👍🏼

Good! Shut him out!

Adults don't use snapchat.

Thank you, Snapchat

Boo hoo. Snapchat is for tweens.

JoyAnnReid Good for you! Finally someone with enough balls to stand up.

Zuckenberg are you watching?

JoyAnnReid Facebook slowly becoming the alt right of social media platforms.

Did he mention what were the words that incited racial violence and injustice?

The elected leader of America is being judged by a site built on Dick Pics
