Hate speech

We don't allow content attacking vulnerable groups. This means attacking people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or medical condition, among others.

Unkind language targeted at governments, public figures or other groups does not violate our policies.

If you see hate speech on Pinterest, report it to us. If you see a Pin or comment indicating a real threat of violence, please let us know and if necessary, contact your local authorities. 

What’s not hate speech?

  • Profanity
  • Mean stuff about things you like (bands, celebrities)
  • Controversial topics (criticism of politicians, religions)

We also have protections against any attack on private people that does not target them based on being part of a vulnerable group. We cover this in our harassment policies.
