Apple takes people spreading hate speech and violence through its platform very seriously and the company CEO Tim Cook reiterated the stand during an award acceptance speech.

Cook, who received the Anti-Defamation League's first-ever Courage Against Hate award at an event in New York City, said that supremacists, conspiracy theorists, and those who seek to spread hate have no place on Apple's platforms, Cnet reported.

Earlier this year, Apple removed podcasts produced by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Infowars from iTunes and Apple's Podcast app.
