PayPal says policy to punish users for misinformation was 'in error'
Online payment network PayPal has reneged on a controversial policy that could’ve seen users fined $2,500 for spreading “misinformation,” with the payment platform claiming the policy update was published “in error.” But the screenshot of the policy says otherwise. PayPal caves after social media backlash. We’re sorry for the confusion this has caused." Your finances used to be decoupled from free speech. While the implementation of a fine would’ve been a first for PayPal, the payment giant is no stranger to deplatforming users it isn’t politically aligned with, having cut ties with domain registrar Epik in Oct. 2020 who provided services to the Proud Boys and other conservative groups.
