Apple CEO Tim Cook said this week that not using one’s judgement to kick certain people off tech platforms is a sin. While accepting the first-ever “Courage Against Hate” award from the Anti-Defamation League in New York City, Cook said that Apple is proud of exercising its judgement to kick certain people off of its platforms.
“At Apple, we’re not afraid to say our values drive our curation decisions,” said Cook. “And why should we be?”
“We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence: You have no place on our platforms,” Cook said. “You have no home here.”
WIBC host Tony Katz:
“And this is where Tim Cook has gone completely off the rails. Can I take a look at every rap lyric you’ve ever allowed on your platform that promotes white supremacy?
Now you have to understand that I’m okay with all of this. I say that artists have a right to speak. Why? Because people who suck have rights – that’s always been the case. Yes, it’s hard; but it’s better than the other option.”
