The new policy on Ravelry.com was posted Sunday, June 23, 2019.

On Sunday night, a tweet, which has now been shared nearly 10,000 times and attracted 13,000 comments, said: "We can not provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy".

The platform for crafters Ravelry insisted that backing Donald Trump and his officials is "undeniably support for white supremacy" and pledged to get rid of all types of content, endorsing the current administration in any way.

"This is very real", read a reply by Ravelry to its 117,000 Twitter followers. "Do not try to weaponize this policy by entrapping people who do support the Trump administration into voicing their support", the blog post says. "I am removing my account and will be spreading the word that others should do so as well".
