Reddit has blocked the community of Trump supporters

The popular Reddit website, after updating its content policy, blocked the r / The_Donald community, in which supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump spoke, as well as about two thousand other communities.

About it writes The Verge.

It is noted that communities were blocked due to “incitement to hatred” on the network.

According to Steve Huffman, Reddit CEO, users of the r / The_Donald subreddit have violated the site’s rules for years.

The publication noted that last year Reddit “quarantined” this community due to the fact that it posted content that provoked violence. The company did not allow forum posts to go to the Reddit homepage.

In addition, the site also blocked a group dedicated to the left podcasting group Chapo Trap House and about two thousand other communities.
