Company statements: Youtube and Eventbrite


We ticket millions of events a year and strive to ensure our community has a safe and positive experience using Eventbrite. While we enable anyone to create an event and sell tickets for it through our platform, we require that all users abide by our Community Guidelines. We take the issue of harmful misinformation very seriously and our policy is to remove it when we become aware of it. We are actively investigating these events in question and will unpublish events that promote false claims of treatment, cure, or prevention of medical conditions.


Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the coronavirus around the world. We’re committed to providing timely and helpful information at this critical time, including raising authoritative content, reducing the spread of harmful misinformation and showing information panels in Canada, using data from the Public Health Agency of Canada, to help combat misinformation. We also have clear policies that prohibit videos promoting medically unsubstantiated methods to prevent the coronavirus in place of seeking medical treatment, and we quickly remove videos violating these policies when flagged to us.
