SoundCloud Blacklists Conservative Journalist Andy Ngo, Won’t Say Why

Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, June 29, 2021

SoundCloud, a popular platform for hosting podcasts, radio interviews, music, and other audio files has banned conservative journalist and author Andy Ngo, known for his work exposing the violent domestic terrorist Antifa movement.

Ngo used the platform to host his podcast, Things You Should Ngo, which featured interviews with academics, journalists, and activists. {snip}


An email seen by Breitbart News from SoundCloud’s “trust and safety” team informed Ngo of his ban, without specifying which policy the journalist had violated.

Instead, SoundCloud simply reeled off a list of content that is prohibited on the platform, including “content that is abusive, libellous, defamatory, pornographic or obscene, that promotes or incites violence, terrorism, illegal acts, or hatred on the grounds of race, ethnicity, cultural identity, religious belief, disability, gender, identity or sexual orientation, or is otherwise objectionable in SoundCloud’s reasonable discretion.”
