Pepper does not shut down free speech or limit the musical art form unless it causes harm to someone or as required by law. All users of this website should be aware that music lyrics and imagery may be offensive, as it presents music written over hundreds of years curated for over 140 years of American music publishing activity. If we receive a complaint about a piece of music, our normal course of action is to reach out to the individuals who publish the work to notify them of the complaint and determine the proper course of action.

Some complaints are against a specific individual. We are not able to judge any person’s character, guilt, or innocence. We respect the rights of all individuals to speak for themselves.
