The former US representative to Morocco charges Google and Apple parent Alphabet, forcing the companies to give Telegram the Parler treatment by prohibiting the messaging service’s app from their stores.
According to a Bloomberg report, Marc Ginsberg was an earlier ambassador of Bill Clinton to Morocco, demands Telegram must be deleted from App Store and Google Play Store as it promoting violence, racism, anti-Semitism, and extremism.
He complaints against Apple that “the platform is used to intimidate, compel, and threaten public.” The Safer Web’s association is a co-plaintiff in the suits.
The lawsuit asserts:
“Telegram remains to permit extremist incitement in its platform, supporting political violence as extremist groups and individuals move to Telegram under Apple’s suspension of Parler”.
The Telegram causing in economic loss and emotional distress for himself and others as well, Ginsberg alleged.
The lawsuit points to tech giants’ decision to prohibit Parler from their stores after the Capitol tumults on January 6. Google, Apple, Amazon, and others were banned free speech social network app for promoting violence.
Ginsberg’s accuse Google:
“Google has not yet taken any action against Telegram comparable to the action it has taken against Parler to force Telegram to refine its content moderation policies”.
According to Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram, they took down hundreds of posts, and adding any drives to violence would not be endured.
Moreover, the complaint alleges that Telegram also facilitates the sale of drugs such as cocaine. Some users reportedly asked followers of the Parler refugees channel to throw surprise attacks across the country instead of the second protest in Washington.
