Eventbrite cancels Riley Gaines pro-women promotion, but pro-Hamas event gets the greenlight

The ticketing company Eventbrite has deplatformed a woman’s rights activist while simultaneously platforming pro-Hamas zealots.

Riley Gaines, a former female college athlete who was forced to compete against biological men, had been promoting a women’s rights event through Eventbrite, up until she received an email informing her that the event had been removed.

“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,” the email reads.

“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 or groups based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, immigration status, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, age, or disability,” it continues.

The email came as quite a shocker given the groups that Eventbrite does allow to use its platform. Groups like The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City, which has a Nov. 1st event scheduled called “Stop the Genocide! Free Palestine!” But that’s not the worst part.

Seen here, the event page contains an event description in which the Hamas terrorists who butchered 1,300+ Israeli men, women, and children are referred to as “Palestinian resistance fighters.”

“Early on Saturday, October 7th, Palestinian resistance fighters broke through Israel’s siege of Gaza. In response, Israel has declared total war against the people of Gaza, completely cutting off access to food, water, and electricity, while bombing the Strip and killing entire families,” the event description reads.

“This attack on Gaza takes place after 75 years of settler-colonial violence conducted by the Israeli state. This panel will explore the historical context that led to the current moment, the dynamics currently at play, and the possibilities for building international solidarity for Palestinian liberation,” it continues.

In a statement to Outkick, Gaines slammed Eventbrite’s clear-cut lack of moral clarity.

“By allowing pro-terrorist and anti-Semitic groups to keep their scheduled events on the Eventbrite platform, but canceling events discussing the importance of ensuring the safety, fairness, and equal opportunities for women, Eventbrite has sent a clear message to all,” she said.

“Eventbrite is the epitome of organizations taking a stand against women and our basic human rights. If being pro-woman in women’s sports is deemed anti-trans, then being pro-trans in women’s sports is inherently anti-woman. And that is the stand Eventbrite has taken. The event at UC DAVIS is still going to take place next month. My speech will not be stifled,” she added.

Meanwhile, Eventbrite co-founder Kevin Hartz has taken to attacking both Outkick and Gaines for daring to point out the company’s flawed morality.

“I am the Co-Founder and Chairman of Eventbrite and to accuse Eventbrite of being Pro-Hamas is egregious and moronic. How could you make an unsubstantiated slander that I support these genocidal maniacs? Please go f–k yourself! (The last comment represents the individual views of Kevin and not that of Eventbrite, etc, etc),” he tweeted late Wednesday.

Look (*Language warning):

When presented with evidence, including a link to the Eventbrite page for the pro-Hamas rally, Hartz continued to double down and mock his critics.

This isn’t the first time Eventbrite has displayed poor moral clarity. Late last month, Eventbrite deplatformed famous detransitioner Chloe Cole.

On Nov. 6th, Cole is scheduled to deliver a speech about “fighting the irreversible harm of mutilating minors” at the First Baptist North Spartanburg church in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The event is being hosted by the Palmetto Family Council, a conservative Christian nonprofit.

The nonprofit had been using Eventbrite — a website for advertising events — to get the message out. That all changed on Sept. 29th, when the Palmetto Family Council received an email from Eventbrite saying the platform would no longer feature the event because of Cole’s allegedly “hateful” views.

“We have determined that your event is not permitted on the Eventbrite platform as it violates our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service, specifically our policy on Hateful, Dangerous, or Violent Content and Events. As a result, your event has been unpublished,” the email read.
