Chicago’s Chance The Rapper needs answers. The hip-hop star has hit up social media to question the politics behind digital network Tumblr.
Chance jumped on Twitter last night (December 3) to ask why Tumblr censors nudity but gives a green light to graphic violent content.
They banning nipples on tumblr but im seeing people get murdered graphically every day on this app. Like real snuff videos, non related to police shootings. Wtf yo. That shit honestly terrible for my mental and fucking up how I value human life. Help? @TwitterSupport

The open-ended question has sparked a flurry of feedback and reactions from Twitter users.

You gotta commission an app that changes murders to nipples

On one hand it's important to document reality, on the other hand it can desensitise us to terrible things…

It is sickening to see people die graphically online, however many use social media platforms like this one to bring attention to human rights violations across the world. This content is often graphic, so restricting it could be dangerous to those desperately trying to be heard.
