Reddit Shuts Down Alt-Right Forums After Daily Beast Exposé

Reddit announced late Wednesday that it was shutting down certain alt-right and pro-Nazi forums on the site that promote violence. “Going forward, we will take action against any content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people,” the company said. The announcement comes just hours after a Daily Beast exposé about a prominent poster on a Trump-themed subreddit who allegedly murdered his own father after he called his son a Nazi and a racist.
