Eventbrite bans group from sharing about DC ‘March for Trump,’ cites ‘harmful misinformation’

President Donald Trump’s supporters were banned by an event-organizing website from sharing about a march scheduled in Washington, D.C.

A “March for Trump” event to support the president’s efforts to legally challenge the 2020 election results in several states is set for the weekend. But organizers of the event found their outreach de-platformed by Eventbrite which called out the “harmful misinformation” in an email.

The event, scheduled to begin Saturday on Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza, is going forward as planned and has been promoted on social media.

The chair of Women for America First, Amy Kremer, along with many other Trump supporters, shared details of the march with a rallying cry to “rise up and have our voices heard.”

But Kremer had to inform her Twitter followers on Tuesday that the event was still on, despite Eventbrite’s message. She shared in a tweet that the website had “just shut down our event & emailed everyone that it was canceled,” adding that the same thing had happened with Facebook and Mailchimp, another email marketing service.

“Big Tech is trying shut down our march,” Kremer added. “But we won’t let them.”

Kremer shared an image of the Eventbrite email explaining the decision.

“We’re reaching out regarding your event listing, ‘MARCH FOR TRUMP,'” the company’s “Trust and Safety” division said in the email. “We do not permit events, content, or creators that share or promote potentially harmful misinformation. In this instance, we have determined hat your event violates our community guidelines and is therefore not permitted on the Eventbrite platform.”

Rachel Bovard, the senior director of policy at the Conservative Partnership Institute, retweeted Kremer’s post, calling out the “Woke corporate power, colluding against ‘wrong think.'”

Others continued to use Twotter to get the word out about the scheduled march.

U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas shared a tweet about Eventbrite’s actions, tagging the Department of Justice.

Twitter users expressed their shock over the move and slammed Eventbrite, as well as other anti-Trump Big Tech companies, for the double standards and outright censorship.
