Tumblr Blacklisted from Apple App Store for ‘Child Sexual Exploitation’

Popular microblogging platform Tumblr, popular with teenagers and college-aged youth, has been kicked off of the Apple App Store, allegedly over issues with “child sexual exploitation” being posted on the social network.

According to the Verge, the app, which has been on the store for several years, was removed on November 16 and has remained off the store since.

On Monday evening, it was confirmed that the reason was due to alleged problems with “child sexual exploitation and abuse” on the platform, which managed to slip through Tumblr’s filters.
