Spotify has taken away the credibility of their claims to care about women’s rights after they tried to capitalize on a recently-removed (from Spotify) rappers death.
20 year-old rapper XXXTentacion was killed in Deerfield Beach, FL outside a motorsports dealership Monday afternoon. The controversial rapper, who did jail time for abuse of a pregnant woman and false imprisonment, was a victim of an alleged drive-by shooting.
The rapper had his music removed from Spotify in early May 2018 due to the streaming service’s desperate attempt to pander to the modern day American feminist movement, also known as #METOO.
Upon his death Spotify has since taken advantage of this tragedy and reposted XXXTentacion’s music. This is all in a very desperate, shameful attempt to capitalize. This leaves many people to believe Spotify never cared about women’s rights or abuse of women. They simply opt to capitalize in any way, form, or fashion.
Many fans of the deceased rapper are disgusted by this inconsistency on the behalf of Spotify. They have vowed to stop using the streaming service.
I see why Beyonce said fuck spotify, just a few weeks ago they were bashing XXXTENTACION & taking him off all the playlist now they're trying to capitalize off his passing smh…#XXXTentacion pic.twitter.com/IEU5IojWFi— YOUNG & BANDSOME 💰 (@JappOffJones) June 19, 2018
