Eventbrite gets ‘the Bud Light treatment’ after de-listing Riley Gaines event

The decision to cancel Riley Gaines isn’t working out well for Eventbrite.

Calls to boycott Eventbrite surged on social media after the company dropped a listing Tuesday for Ms. Gaines’ Speak Louder campus tour, saying that her stance against male-born athletes in female sports violated its anti-discrimination policy.

“Specifically, we do not allow content or events that — through on-or-off platform activity — discriminate against, harass, disparage, threaten, incite violence against, or otherwise target individuals or groups based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, immigration status, gender identity, sexual orientation [and others],” the company said in a notice to Ms. Gaines.It turns out, however, that Eventbrite had previously listed at least two events extolling the perpetrators of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israeli civilians, as flagged by OutKick, where Ms. Gaines hosts the “Gaines on Girls” podcast.

Those whipping up support for an Eventbrite boycott include Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, who said Thursday that “Americans need to stop giving money to woke corporations that hate them.”
