Apple and PayPal are taking aim at websites that sell apparel glorifying white nationalists and support hate groups.
Apple has disabled Apple Pay support for several websites that sell sweaters and T-shirts with Nazi symbols and “white pride.” The move comes on the heels of the violent white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, which culminated in the death of a woman on Saturday.
Apple confirmed it pulled support from the sites, noting that their activity violated long-standing Apple Pay community guidelines. Apple CEO Tim Cook was quite vocal about his feelings in a tweet Monday, calling the terror of white supremacists and racist violence “an affront to America,” adding, “We must all stand against it.”
