Airbnb says it will try to ban Capitol rioters from inauguration stays
Some hotels will be closed, too.
Airbnb says it will review all Washington-area reservations, and anyone associated with a hate group will have their reservation canceled and be banned from Airbnb. The company also said it’s taking action against individuals involved in criminal activity at the Capitol, including permanently banning them from the platform.
Airbnb did not say what action would be taken outside of bans.
Airbnb’s steps may not prevent a person with violent intentions from staying in one of its properties. The names of every person involved in the Capitol riots are not known, making it difficult to issue a comprehensive ban. Airbnb said it’s cross-referencing a January 6 arrest log from the DC police department. It’s also looking at US Attorney press releases listings arrests and charges.
Plus there are at least 3 folks running sites where folks who have sussed out who folks in riot photos are can post, and the site shares info with the FBI.
I guess their lawyers never told them that if you’re going to crime, don’t livestream it!
