Airbnb has said it will cancel the reservations of any guests associated with hate groups. The move comes after a user on Twitter pointed out to Airbnb that a self-proclaimed member of the Proud Boys hate group had booked an Airbnb in Washington, D.C., for this weekend’s Million MAGA March, where attendees plan to protest the election results that saw President-elect Joe Biden handily beat incumbent President Trump.

After the Twitter user’s above tweet, Airbnb responded by saying that it has canceled the reservation of that specific Proud Boy member and banned the person from Airbnb. “Anyone affiliated with hate groups has no place on Airbnb,” the company said in the tweet.

As The Hill reports, a counter-protest called FUCK MAGA is also planned for this weekend in Washington, D.C.
