Premium (now free, since I cancelled my premium account over Spotify pushing politics)
PC, Windows Desktop Client

My Question or Issue
Usually, users may report offensive content with the Report option accessible via the right click menu or hamburger button. However, for curated content from Spotify, users find this Report button disabled.
Some users do not want to have political content on their feeds, so this is a technical flaw that needs to be addressed. I must be able to report Spotify's content in order to remove it from my feed. In particular, I would like to remove any political content from my feed, especially divisive content like Black Lives Matter playlists.
I am a foreigner with 0 interest in American rioting and certainly do not wish to show solidarity with anyone who confuses looting and rioting with the right to free assembly. Spotify does not carry a mandate to 'show solidarity' on my behalf, or to determine which cause deserves my 'solidarity'. Kindly fix your platform so that I may report your misguided and offensive curated content and remove it from my sight.
Update: I have cancelled my premium subscription for the time being. If Spotify fixes its platform to allow me to opt out of political content from my feed, then I will reconsider and go premium again. Enough of this woke nonsense. Not in my name and certainly not with my money.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Seems like one can avoid the woke nonsense by switching to a Private Session, in both the web client and the Windows application. Regardless, something fishy happened as all the woke nonsense miraculously disappeared. I'm waiting for a statement of some sort from Spotify before switching on my Premium account again, but for now this matter is resolved
