Apple cuts off Apple Pay support for companies promoting hatred

Apple has disabled Apple Pay support for a number of websites selling apparel and other paraphernalia emblazoned with Nazi symbols and white nationalist imagery following recent events and racial unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia, reports BuzzFeed News.

A spokesperson referred the publication to the company’s guidelines for Apple Pay, which forbid the service’s incorporation into sites promoting hate, intolerance, and violence. Apple CEO Tim Cook sent an email to employees Wednesday night announcing donations to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League, saying that he disagreed with the president drawing a moral equivalence between Nazis and white nationalists and those who opposed them.
