In the wake of organized violence from alt-right, nazi, white supremacist hate groups, many companies have chosen a side and distanced themselves from racist consumers. Spotify is among them, as the streaming service has wiped all "hate bands" from its music library.

Thirty-seven white supremacist bands that were once found on Spotify have now been taken off.

"The music in our catalog comes from hundreds of thousands of record companies and aggregators all over the world, and those are at first hand responsible for the content they deliver. Illegal content or material that favors hatred or incites violence against race, religion, sexuality or the like is not tolerated by us. Spotify takes immediate action to remove any such material as soon as it has been brought to our attention," Spotify said in a statement.

"We are glad to have been alerted to this content - and have already removed many of the bands identified today, whilst urgently reviewing the remainder."
