SoundCloud 'Blacks Out' On Tuesday

SoundCloud is one of the many media giants to 'black out' in response to the death of unarmed black man, George Floyd , in police custody on the 25th of May 2020.

SoundCloud's app as it appeared in support of 'Blackout Tuesday' concept that is part of Black Lives Matter (Credit: SoundCloud).

The concept was put forward that the music industry, and the wider digital world, would 'black out' in an effort for people to reconnect with their community and enable people to take the time to better understand the importance of the #BlackLiverMatter movement.


The concept was that people would only post a black image on their social media for Tuesday the 2nd June 2020. The 'Blackout' initiative took a fair amount of criticism as people used the hashtag incorrectly and caused a concerning amount of spam on the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag feed which meant that people wanting to educate themselves on the issue and find out all of the latest breaking information were unable to as social media was just a near endless stream of solid black images.
