The internet giant has shut down all of its video services that offer access to “exploiting movies,” including Google Play and YouTube, and is also requiring video content owners to remove “anti-social, abusive, or otherwise inappropriate content.”
The company’s decision follows reports of a spike in online hate speech targeting women and minorities following the election of President Donald Trump.
Google has said it will continue to crack down on the content, and has launched a public service campaign to encourage content owners and content providers to remove content from Google Play.
Google’s move is the latest in a series of recent crackdowns by the tech giant on “off-topic” content.
Earlier this month, the tech company also announced it was cutting ties with Vice News, a news outlet that ran a series on its “dark side” of the world.
