Firms remove products after BBC report, which found algorithms on the websites recommended purchasing other white supremacist products. Amazon, Google and Wish have taken down neo-Nazi and white supremacist merchandise that was sold on their platforms. The removal of the products comes after a BBC investigation found neo-Nazi books and Ku Klux Klan paraphernalia could be bought on the companies’ websites, the British broadcaster said Saturday. The report said algorithms used by e-commerce sites Amazon and Wish would also suggest other white-supremacist goods, including those of the far-right libertarian group, the Boogaloo movement. Among the items sold on Amazon was a flag with a Celtic Cross, which the Anti-Defamation League said was “one of the most important and commonly used white supremacist symbols,” as well as another flag bearing a symbol used by the gunman who killed 51 people last year at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. Several KKK products were available on Wish, including a cartoon and a hood resembling those worn by members of the white hate group.
