UPDATE: According to Allie Stuckey, Spotify has restored Relatable with Allie Stuckey after being removed for 15 hours. No reason was given for the removal by the platform.
Music streaming giant Spotify has removed BlazeTV personality Allie Stuckey‘s podcast entitled Relatable with Allie Stuckey from its platform without warning early Thursday afternoon. Allie Stuckey (also known as The Conservative Millennial) who is a conservative Christian personality known for speaking on the topics of Christianity and Religion, recently did an episode discussing the United Methodist Church’s internal struggle over the issue of gay marriage. Stuckey took to social media announce that her podcast has been pulled from the site without an explanation.
@Spotify has removed my podcast from their platform as of today. Interesting.
If you’ve listened to my podcast, you know that it’s not an out-there or even a controversial show— unless you consider conservative, Christian views that millions hold controversial, which, of course, many do. But hey— maybe it’s just a glitch.
I’m sure this has nothing to do with it, right? Especially since today’s episode was on the recent Methodist Church decision?
Two months ago, Spotify made headlines after it banned advertisements from Conservative educational website PragerU on its platform. The music streaming service sent an email to PragerU stating:
Our policy team has re-reviewed the ads that you have submitted through Ad Studio and determined that the content of the ads do not comply with our editorial policies. On further review of your website, there are additional compliance concerns with the content of the site which listeners of the ads are directed to.
Our policy team has made the decision to stop all existing ads and not approve any new ads coming through in the future. Please let us know if you have any questions or require further clarification.
As of this writing, Spotify has yet to respond to questions regarding if the removal of Allie’s podcast was intentional or a mistake. Relatable with Allie Stuckey is still available on other platforms, for the time being, however, there has been much talk this week regarding Big Tech censorship of conservative voices and personalities on multiple digital platforms. Steven Crowder recently had multiple videos of his Youtube channel removed due to copyright claims from Disney that was later withdrawn and Rotten Tomatoes completed a massive overhaul of its website’s feedback ability after media complaints about negative comments regarding the new Captain Marvel film.
