PayPal Drops Hammer On The KKK As It Suspends Donation Account: ‘Hate And Violence Are Not Tolerated’

The Ku Klux Klan will no longer be allowed to receive donation funds via PayPal after an anti-bigotry campaigner flagged the group.

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan had promoted the account via a donation page on its website.

PayPal received backlash for letting the hate group use their services for so long before taking action.

PayPal previously pledged to “evaluate all sites” brought to its attention that involved the use of its service to fund the KKK and other organizations advocating racist views.

“I have tonnes of concerns that PayPal is not able to act quickly and decisively on hate groups,” Nandini Jammi, from the internet-based group Sleeping Giants, told BBC News. “There are some examples of them acting in a fairly timely manner.”

“But they’re not applying [their anti-hate policy] in a consistent enough manner.”

A spokesman for PayPal said: “Due to our legal and data protection obligations, we cannot comment on any specific PayPal customer’s account. We carefully review accounts to ensure our services are used in line with our acceptable use policy and take action as appropriate. We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that are discriminatory.”
