An event management and ticketing company has ended up shutting down an event organized in support for President Donald Trump. The group Women for American First are organizing a march on Saturday stating their support for Trump. While they had chosen Eventbrite to organize the event, the company backed out and shut down the event altogether.
The event was originally titled “March for Trump” and was to be organized by Eventbrite. But the company canceled the event as they say it violated their terms of service for “misinformation.” Chris Baron shared a screenshot of the email Women for America First received from Eventbrite. Here’s an excerpt from what Eventbrite told the pro-Trump organization:
“We do not permit events, content, or creators that share or promote potentially harmful misinformation. In this instance, we have determined that your event violates our Community Guidelines and is therefore not permitted on the Eventbrite platform.”
Eventbrite’s decision to suspend the event resulted in intense backlash with many expressing their contempt.
Ever since the presidential election took place many Trump supporters are alleging voter fraud and are trying to express their views about it with major opposition from tech platforms who won’t allow the accusations.
But Big Tech, however, has started stomping down such opinions, and Eventbrite simply joins the league of several such companies censoring allegations of election fraud.
