COOK: “Most importantly, it drives us not to be bystanders as hate tries to make its headquarters in the digital world. At Apple we believe that technology needs to have a clear point of view on this challenge. There is no time to get tied up in knots. That's why we only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence: You have no place on our platforms. (Applause) You have no home here. From the earliest days of iTunes to Apple Music today, we have always prohibited music with a message of white supremacy. (Applause) Why? Because it's the right thing to do. And as we showed this year, we won't give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists on the app store.”
