Ex-My Kitchen Rules judge Pete Evans has had his podcasted booted from Spotify’s platform for violating company policy and promoting “dangerous” and “misleading” content.
Taking to Instagram Tuesday morning, controversial conspiracy theorist Evans posted that Spotify had taken down his Evolve podcast.
“Could it have something to do with the many brave doctors and scientists that we interview, that are warning people about these poisons that’s disguised as medicine?” he captioned the image.
“Or could it do with the hundreds of hours of information that helps people live a healthy lifestyle … or both?”
Some of his followers called out Spotify for censorship, while others threatened to cancel their Spotify accounts.
In a statement to NCA NewsWire, a Spotify spokesperson said Evans’ podcast violated company policy.
“Spotify prohibits content on the platform which promotes dangerous false, deceptive, or misleading content about COVID-19 that may cause offline harm and/or pose a direct threat to public health.
“When content that violates this standard is identified it is removed from the platform.”
Meanwhile, Evans’ podcast is still available on Apple. Evans posted another image to Instagram thanking the streaming giant.
“Thanks to Apple podcasts for having me on their platform. We are the number 2 ranked podcast channel for nutritional advice according to their rankings,” he said.
Spotify is the latest channel to remove Evans’ content from its platform, with Facebook recently deleting his page for spreading “misinformation” that could lead to “imminent physical harm”.
