Shopify is a Canadian SaaS company and the host of Breitbart, a right-wing website causing plenty of controversy. Recently, the CEO of Shopify, Tobias Lutke wrote an open letter to defend the decision to continue providing Breitbart with services for the online store. This was in response to about 10,000 messages asking the company to stop providing services to Breitbart.
The letter stated that if the company were to discontinue services for merchants they didn’t like, it would make their lives easier. However, that would also be censorship and would no longer be the free exchange of products.
