Apple gives Parler 24 hours to ban illegal threats or face suspension on app store

Apple issued an ultimatum to Parler, a social media site inundated by right-wing extremists bent on the violent overthrow of American democracy, giving the site 24 hours to implement a moderation program to remove threats and other illegal content.

In its warning on Friday, Apple wrote: “We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property. The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”
