Apple removed the Parler messaging app used by Trump supporters from its online store on January 9.

The day before, the company’s management threatened that it would remove the social network popular with conservatives if during the day the moderators did not begin to block calls for violence from their users against the background of the riots in Washington.

“We have always supported different points of view, but there is no place for threats of violence and illegal activities on our platform,” Apple said.

In a statement, quoted by CNBC, Parler has failed to take action to prevent the spread of threats. When the problem is resolved, the app can be unlocked.

Previously, Google blocked the Parler app in its online store, as the owners of the app were reminded for several months to remove incitements to violence.
