Women's group asks Spotify to remove artistes accused of sexual abuse

Women's rights organisation UltraViolet has written a letter to Spotify CEO Daniel Ek asking that the streaming service remove artists responsible for or accused of sexual abuse including Chris Brown, 6ix9ine and more.
 
The group - founded in 2012 - lauded Spotify for taking the first steps in removing abusers from its platform after it removed R. Kelly from its official playlists.
 
Ultraviolet then asked that Spotify remove more artists who are responsible for or have been accused of abuse, including The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nelly, Eminem and Steven Tyler.
 
The latest move by Spotify to remove abusive artists stems from the Time's Up movement taking aim at R. Kelly, asking that his music be removed from streaming platforms and his concerts be cancelled.
