The social media app Parler is set to return to Apple devices months after it was banned from the App Store. In order to be allowed back, Parler was forced to make some modifications to its policies, according to the Washington Post.
Why? Because the app apparently allowed content that “glorified and encouraged” what took place at the U.S. Capitol back on Jan. 6.
In other words, LeBron James encouraging threats on police officers earlier this week on Twitter is acceptable behavior, according to Apple, but what Parler allowed is not. The only apps Apple is interested in cracking down on lean right apparently.
So now, Parler must now have stricter moderation policies on Apple devices. Otherwise, it will get the boot once again. Content that appears on the Android app and website will not be censored, however.
Parler will reportedly go live again next week.
