Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said the way the firm banned musicians R Kelly and XXXTentacion from its playlists was badly handled.
R Kelly and XXXTentacion were booted from Spotify’s playlists earlier this month, but XXXTentacion was reinstated while he awaits trial for charges of domestic abuse.
Ek didn’t say if R Kelly would be reinstated but explained the ban came from new policies around hate speech and hateful conduct.
He said it was difficult to act as the “moral police” for art.
Spotify’s chief executive Daniel Ek has said he regretted the way his company banned musicians R Kelly and XXXTentacion without really explaining why.
The company removed R Kelly from its playlists earlier this month in the wake of allegations that he had run sex cults involving young women. It also banned and then reinstated XXXTentacion, who is awaiting trial for charges of domestic abuse and witness harassment, to which he has pleaded not guilty.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
