Eventbrite removed a Riley Gaines event for violating its Community Guidelines: A UC Davis college Republicans club invited activist and former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines to speak on the importance or women's sports at its "Protecting Women's Sports with Riley Gaines" event set to take place on November 3. The student group used ticketing and event platform Eventbrite to post the event. The platform removed the event, claiming it violated Eventbrite's policy: "We have determined that your event is not permitted on the Eventbrite marketplace as it violates our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service, with which all users agree to comply," Eventbrite explained in a content removal notice according to a screenshot posted by Gaines. "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 based on their actual or perceived" characteristics. In its list of possible characteristics Eventbrite included "gender identity."
