Substack, an email newsletter platform, is dealing with backlash from users after CEO Hamish McKenzie defended hosting and processing payments for neo-Nazi content. In a December note, McKenzie said that while the company "doesn't like Nazis," demonetizing sites with extreme views isn't the answer and could make the problem worse. This stance has led to several well-known newsletters threatening to leave Substack if it doesn't change its policy on hosting such content.
