(FOX BUSINESS) – Apple suspended Parler from its App Store Saturday after the “unbiased social media” app surged to the No. 1 spot in the free apps section earlier in the day.
“We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity,” an Apple spokesperson said in a statement to FOX Business.
“Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues.”
The App Reviews Board sent a letter to Parler executives explaining that their app would be “removed from the App Store until we receive an update that is compliant with the App Store Review Guidelines and you have demonstrated your ability to effectively moderate and filter the dangerous and harmful content on your service.”
