To CEO Daniel Ek:

Thank you for taking the important first step of removing infamous abusers R. Kelly and
XXXTentacion from your official playlists. Your action demonstrates that Spotify is following the lead of Black women who demanded that these two men, who have sexually and physically abused women for years, not be promoted and celebrated.

On behalf of our one million members, UltraViolet applauds and supports this choice.

Yet as you know, these two men are not the only abusers on your platform. We implore
you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote.

Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we
wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse. That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist.

While nowhere near a comprehensive list, here are several abusers or groups of abusers
who continue to profit from your promotion:

●; Chris Brown
●; The Red Hot Chili Peppers
●; Nelly
●; Eminem
●; Don Henley of The Eagles
●; Steven Tyler of Aerosmith
●; Tekashi 6ix9ine
●; Ted Nugent

We publish this as an open letter because we hope other platforms like iTunes, Google Play
Music, and Pandora will continue to follow your lead.

Thank you again for your thoughtful consideration.

Sincerely,

Shaunna Thomas, Executive Director, UltraViolet



...someone should tell these ladies about Nas too.

This needed to be posted, thanks Tadow.

Terrifying?

It's better that artists express themselves through art than commit crimes.

Whoever set this off knows nothing of art.

Spotify fucked up large if they removed hardcore artists.

From my understanding it was just playlists, no?

I can't believe Spotify even bended to an individual with a petition.

She should listen to classical not 12play.

I would be happy to see all of those bands/rappers dissappear forever on the grounds that they all suck.

With that said...i just went through like 20 Suga free albums on Spotify and I learned a whole lot about respecting women

That more seems like a Christian and very insulated mother than some extreme liberal poltical correctness warrior . Tbh i think she and ollie share a lot of the same opinions about popular wrap

Crump- to be clear I was talking about he vid not the OP. Im conflicted about the OP because while i do think that people should be judged by their actions, some rappers who i listen to are pieces of shit IRL (big pun and fabolous definitely abuse women, for example). I sympathize with the idea of audiences shunning these types--it infuriates me that Chris Brown still makes hits--but some musicians are too good for me to ignore.
