Airbnb says it may kick out Unite the Right rally participants in DC: report

Source: The Hill

Airbnb warned people heading to Washington, D.C., to participate in this weekend's white nationalist Unite the Right rally that the company may cancel their reservations and remove their accounts if they are caught violating Airbnb's policies.

The company said in a statement to ABC News that it will take “appropriate action” if it identifies users who are “pursuing behavior on the Airbnb platform that would be antithetical to the Airbnb Community Commitment.”

Airbnb says all of its users are required to agree to its Community Commitment, which includes treating "everyone in the Airbnb community — regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age — with respect, and without judgment or bias."

The upcoming rally, which will take place near the White House at Lafayette Square, is being organized by the people who planned last year's deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va.

2. I was thinking Nazis can sleep with the fishes...

I'm not very good at this game.

Perhaps benches will suffice in this situation...if they are underwater. haha

7. This makes no sense.

"Airbnb has canceled accounts and bookings before, doing so ahead of the Charlottesville rally last year. The company has not publicly said how many of those bookings and accounts were canceled.

"We acted in advance of last year's horrific event in Charlottesville and if we become aware of similar information we won’t hesitate to do so again," the company said in a statement to ABC."



The rally is this weekend so what are the house owners going to do,wait until their guests arrive and check their luggage for Tiki Torches and Vanguard Shields? ..LOL

If they truly were concerned they would have not booked their residences for this weekend and the few bucks they lost chalk it up to having a moral compass.
