Political propaganda used to brainwash people currently available on Roku
I’d like to know why channels like “Burrow” are allowed on Roku? This channel is literally about going down the “rabbit hole,” and “red pilling” people. This is what right wing conspiracy theorists call it when they recruit more people into their growing group of possible future terrorists, which is really brainwashing people with misinformation/disinformation… that is complete political propaganda about Q anon. I don’t understand why this is available on Roku, and I see a class action law$uit in your future. Do you know how many suicides I’ve seen lately because people are getting frustrated that they’re conspiracy theories aren’t coming to fruition…leading them to hopelessness and depression, and you’re on here allowing them to feed more conspiracy theories to more people… there is a class action law$uit in your future…Good luck Roku.

Arbitration is an agreement entered into by people who have Roku subscriptions, and agree to those terms. I’m talking about suits led by family members who haven’t agreed to those terms, and therefore would not be bound by them.
Roku is violating its own standards by hosting a new Qanon channel, "Burrow" (as reported yesterday)
Roku is in danger of prosecution or at least civil action re the Burrow channel. If you really look at what Qanon does, it makes terrorist threats from time to time. It also endangers lives by spreading anti-vaccine misinformation. The Burrow channel is 100% misinformation. People could get hurt and sue Roku.
Why does no one check content on a Roku channel?
As per Media Matters:
Streaming platform Roku has allowed a channel dedicated to QAnon conspiracy theories to launch, even though it seemingly violates the platform’s rules and precedent that disallows this kind of content. Just weeks after the channel launched, it has been installed hundreds of thousands of times, and Roku may also be earning revenue for ads being run on the channel.
The channel, called Burrow, launched in early December and is categorized by Roku as “educational.” The channel’s logo features a rabbit jumping into a hole, seemingly referencing the phrase “going down the rabbit hole.” The channel’s slogan appears to be the QAnon-related phrase “follow the white rabbit,” and the channel calls itself “The Redpill Network” (with “Redpill” as an image instead of the word), referring to an embrace of far-right and conspiratorial beliefs.
All of this content seems to violate Roku’s own rules, which prohibit content that could “incite violence, place individuals or groups in imminent harm, or are otherwise unlawful or encouraging of illegal activity,” or “contain false, irrelevant or misleading information.”

QAnon is a dangerous and deluded cult that advocates for violence. I will not associate or support anyone, any organizing, or any business that enables it. If this Burrow channel remains on Roku I will close my accounts and will using the service
