Women's Rights Group Demands Spotify Remove Eminem, 6IX9INE, Nelly & Chris Brown
 

 
Women’s advocacy group Ultraviolet is applauding Spotify’s new policy banning hate content and hateful conduct that has brought with it high profile removals of R. Kelly and x*xTentacion from curated playlists, but in an open letter published Monday (May 14) is also asking for more.

As well as R. Kelly and x*xTentacion, the letter written by Ultraviolet executive director Shaunna Thomas requests that Spotify take action against other artists who have been accused of s3xual misconduct, including Chris Brown, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nelly, Eminem and others.

“Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of s3xual a.ssault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse. That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist,” wrote Thomas.

She added that Spotify’s action demonstrates the company "is following the lead of Black women who demanded that these two men, who have s3xually and physically abused women for years, not be promoted and celebrated.”

Ultraviolet hopes the open letter will inspire other music platforms to follow in Spotify’s footsteps.

To CEO Daniel Ek:

Thank you for taking the important first step of removing infamous abusers R. Kelly and x*xTentacion from your official playlists. Your action demonstrates that Spotify is following the lead of Black women who demanded that these two men, who have s3xually and physically abused women for years, not be promoted and celebrated.

On behalf of our one million members, UltraViolet applauds and supports this choice.

Yet as you know, these two men are not the only abusers on your platform. We implore you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote.

Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of s3xual a.ssault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse. That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist.

While nowhere near a comprehensive list, here are several abusers or groups of abusers

who continue to profit from your promotion:

● Chris Brown
● The Red Hot Chili Peppers
● Nelly
● Eminem
● Don Henley of The Eagles
● Steven Tyler of Aerosmith
● Tekashi 6ix9ine
● Ted Nugent


We publish this as an open letter because we hope other platforms like iTunes, Google Play

Music, and Pandora will continue to follow your lead.
Thank you again for your thoughtful consideration.

Sincerely,
Shaunna Thomas, Executive Director, UltraViolet

oh hell naw, it was ok for spotify to do it themselves now these internet attention seeking people trying to capture the moment for attention

well the ones who said it was dangerous

attention whoring needs to be a crime

they don't care about the rights, they want the attention to say they did something

As a musical artist, streaming has taken the power from the artists and given it back to the corporation. Now the consumer doesn't decide if he or she wants to buy the music from the store, the corporation dictates the music that's available. The true face of streaming and online music has emerged.

I have no sympathy for Spotify. Actually, hard for me to imagine they didn't know this would happen. All those smart people in one room didn't realize this was a can of worms? They were just looking for a way to put themselves in the news for free.

Abusing women is never cool but at the end of the day can't you just say fu*k that artist and not support them?

Let the ppl have their own moral compass about it that's what freedom is.

Swear just being alleged of crimes the seal of death

The charges the headline; the charges getting dropped story can fit under your thumb
