Reddit bans pro-Trump forum as Amazon's Twitch bars president's channel

Twitch suspends Donald Trump's account as Reddit bans his supporters community

According to the site moderators, the two biggest violators of these rules are r/The_Donald, a forum for far-right users including supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump, and r/ChapoTrapHouse.

Huffman said. The website explained in a statement, "The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations". And the live-streaming platform Twitch has temporarily banned Trump over "hateful conduct".

On Monday the company said there had been confusion over whether hate speech was "allowed or even protected on Reddit". "We do not make exceptions for political or newsworthy content, and will take action on content reported to us that violates our rules", a Twitch spokesperson said.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Reddit's new content policy specifically bans promoting hate based on identity or vulnerability, and calls for posts to be personal and authentic to prevent spam. "Reddit's ban [of] a bunch of mostly irrelevant subreddits (apart from ChapoTrapHouse) is just cover to ban r/The_Donald, which was the largest pro-MAGA community on the Internet", tweeted YouTuber and Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong.

In 2018 co-founder and chief executive Steve Huffman said in a user Q&A that racism and "open slurs" were not against Reddit's policies.

'All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith.
