In solidarity: Black Lives Matter

Casual Listener

Hello, 

I want to remove category mentioned in title from the main screen of my Spotify app. How to do that? I do not want to take a part in any political fights, terrorist organizations or be anyhow connected to them by anyone (especially music app that I am using). Please post step by step solution how to remove/hide that category from my main screen, otherwise I will cancel all my subscriptions till end of the day.

Hello, can I please request the same, Spotify? I just want to listen to music, I don't want to be subjected to this weird white, middle class guilt thing. I am mixed race myself and just find the way everything is politicised tiresome and annoying.

I agree! Please keep politics out of my playlists, Spotify. This is a paid service – and I'm not paying to be lectured. 

 

Whether or not I personally sympathize with it has nothing to do with it. Perhaps you will condone a far-right protest next, I would hate that to happen.

Yes we know what is happening to this world. Make an announcement, share it on your website, social media - but please stop shoving it into my face when I'm opening the app. 

 

I like to just enjoy music, getting away from all that's happening right now. Please remove it.

Please yes. I don't pay for your service to be programmed with political opinions. I get enough of that all day. Is there a way to use the app without any recommendations?

Yes. Remove this from my account right now or I will cancel subscription. I'm not paying you to do this. I don't support riots in the USA that include robbing stores, destroying private property and assaulting innocent people. You know that you do it only for the marketing purposes.

Users don't need to be propagandized to about Spotify's political or idealogical leanings.

Why is this pushed on paying users, and why do Spotify see this as acceptable? What's next, an NRA playlist?

A protest is designed to inconvenience you, to shine alight on the issues at hand. You want disenfranchised people who are being murdered to sit at home and be angry where you can't see them?

I agree with the OP. This is highly unprofessional and inappropriate. I want to remain completely neutral in this - or any - political debate, and so should a music streaming service. When I open Spotify, I want to listen to music. I do not want political propaganda of any kind whatsoever. It is not Spotify's place in the world to push any political agenda under any circumstances.

 

I am paying for your service so my family and I can stream music. That is all. It is fine that your employees have their personal political views, but Spotify as a company should have none. Please don't do this.
