Sen. Eric Schmitt takes aim at Eventbrite following hypocrisy involving Riley Gaines

Eventbrite’s hypocrisy and woke political extremism were recently put on full display after the company prohibited OutKick’s Riley Gaines from promoting her speaking event about protecting women’s sports at University of California-Davis on Nov. 3. While the company claimed that Gaines’ event violated its terms of service, Eventbrite was allowing listings for pro-Hamas events. Sen. Eric Schmitt of Missouri isn’t letting this story simply float away into the news cycle.

Schmitt recently shared with Fox News that he sent a letter to Eventbrite CEO Julia Hartz, saying that their platform is hypocritical for enforcing “community guidelines” restrictions on Gaines while allowing anti-Israel events.

The Republican Senator went into further detail about his plan of action with Eventbrite on “OutKick The Morning” with Charly Arnolt.

Gaines, host of OutKick’s “Gaines For Girls” podcast, spoke with Arnolt and put the aftermath of the situation into perspective.

“I haven’t heard anything from the CEO, the co-founder, nothing, other than the comment where he told myself and OutKick and the rest of our team to go f-ourselves,” Gaines explained. “I think it’s pretty disheartening that we live in a time where a pro-woman message is discriminatory and violates some sort of hateful content policy but pro-terrorist group’s events are not.”
