Hate speech

We don’t allow Pins that promote hate or violence towards protected groups of people. This includes race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or medical condition. This doesn’t apply to Pins criticizing unprotected groups, governments or public figures.

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?

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

If you see something that attacks a private individual, but isn’t an attack on one of the people above, then it may be a case of harassment.
