“Quarantine Radio is great, so first, shout out to Tory Lanez on that. Quarantine Radio is not banned,” Mosseri clarified. “The lives have been great; the lives with the fans have been great. But you can’t have nudity. That’s part of our community guidelines, part of our community rules, and we can’t make exceptions.”
