Apple denied Parler a place in their app store after the content on their social media was reviewed, according to The Blaze.
“After having reviewed the new information, we do not believe these changes are sufficient to comply with App Store Review guidelines,” Apple wrote to Parler.
“There is no place for hateful, racist, discriminatory content on the App Store.”
Apple said Parler had “not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety.”
“In fact, simple searches reveal highly objectionable content, including easily identified offensive uses of derogatory terms regarding race, religion and sexual orientation, as well as Nazi symbols,” read the letter to Parler, according to Bloomberg. “For these reasons your app cannot be returned to the App Store for distribution until it complies with the guidelines.”

Critics have accused Apple and other tech companies of unfairly targeting Parler out of political motivation.
The debate was further complicated when Parler fired its CEO John Matze in early February.

Later that month, Parler Interim CEO Mark Meckler said on Fox News Business that there had been a “conspiracy” of social media sites and members of Congress intended to wipe Parler from “the face of the Earth.”
Despite that alleged conspiracy, Meckler said that talks with Apple were going favorably and he predicted that Parler would be back on the App Store soon.
