Apple Blocks Apple Pay Support for Sites Promoting White Nationalist and Nazi Groups

Apple has disabled Apple Pay support on websites promoting white nationalist and hate group products, according to a report by BuzzFeed

Apple has not, at the time of this article, provided a comment on its decision to pull Apple Pay from the websites. There are Apple Pay guidelines that state the service is prohibited from being used on sites promoting hate, intolerance, and violence based on race, age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted earlier this week calling the events “heartbreaking” and condemning violence and racism.

PayPal has also pulled payment support from some of the sites, while Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and Airbnb have made efforts to halt white nationalist activity on their platforms as well.
