The site has kicked up controversy with its treatment of the Donald Trump-supporting board, which users say is a hotbed for threats and hate speech.

Reddit has continued to ignore calls to ban the notorious Trump-supporting board The_Donald as users compile instances of threats hate speech, and now an investment in Reddit from a firm led by Jared Kushner’s brother is drawing even greater scrutiny.

But The_Donald has been a flashpoint for criticism even before it was identified as a haven for propaganda.

Users have compiled instances of threats and hate speech rampant on the Trump-supporting board, and there is even a petition calling on Reddit to ban The_Donald as it had with other subreddits identified as harboring hate speech.
