Airbnb is kicking some people it suspects of supporting white nationalism off its site.
Members of the so-called "alt-right" are planning what they call a "free speech rally" in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12.
Some people planning to attend the rally have reportedly been using Airbnb to find places to stay. But Airbnb isn't having it.
The company confirmed to several outlets it used a combination of background checks and community input to identify people "pursuing behavior" against Airbnb's ethical standards.
In this case, the company is deactivating accounts of people it believes are booking properties for activities related to the event.
The event's organizer, Jason Kessler, denounced the move and said it "should be grounds for a lawsuit."
