Reddit acts against hate channels following New Zealand mosque attack
California, Mar 16 : After the deadly mosque attack in New Zealand, Reddit is following the footsteps of other social networking services to act against users on its platform supporting the notorious act.
Reddit posted a note saying the removal of the channels is due to violation of the policy against content glorifying or encouraging violence.
On Friday, shootings at two Christchurch mosques left 49 people dead. The attack was live streamed on social media, prompting tech giants including Facebook and YouTube to pull down the videos, remove the associated accounts, and stop the spread of the 17-minute-long violent act on the internet.
