Airbnb is canceling and blocking reservations in the Washington DC metro area during inauguration week. The drastic decision was informed by reports of “armed militias and known hate groups that are attempting to travel and disrupt the Inauguration” of US president-elect Joe Biden, the company said in a blog post. Airbnb also discussed the matter with local government and police officials and with members of Congress, a spokesperson for the company tells Quartz.
