What is Roku's position on anti-Semitism and racism? Why does it allow Pluto TV access?

Like many viewers, I am alarmed about Nick Cannon’s public anti-Semitic and racist remarks.  I hope you agree that anti-Semitism and racism have no place in this country, and therefore, I expect Roku will cancel Pluto TV's Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ’N Out.  

Can you please tell me when this will happen?  I trust that Roku does not promote racism and anti-Semitism, and I look forward to your reply.

Roku does not run Pluto TV, which is owned by ViacomCBS. Cannon has already been fired by them.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for that.  But the show is still being carried by Pluto TV as Nick Cannon Presents Wild 'N Out.  And while I understand that Roku does not own Pluto TV, Roku does advertise Pluto TV: https://channelstore.roku.com/details/74519/pluto-tv-it&

Perhaps Roku management can respond to the actions they are taking to ban a channel that run's a show with the brand of an anti-Semite and racist.

You should contact PlutoTV and ask that they drop his shows, if they haven't already.

O please get a life. We all should respect other people. If not, it is your own choice, not the choice of any streaming channel provider (which is the choice of that company). Time will tell if that channel will survive due to (un)subscriptions.

You could just not watch the show.

Or you can call out racism and anti-semitism as a moral obligation.  Not too hard is it?

@milespsBased on that you can either use Roku or you just don't. Let's see where Roku stands in four years from now... For being not to personal: should Roku ban people from this forum because they are addicts or slap their children or beat their wives? I don't think so...
