Carousell Suspends User For Rude Remarks Made On Platform
Carousell is a marketplace that can either be a haven for trading or plain annoying due to weird behaviour from both buyers and sellers.
One such keyboard warrior antagonised a buyer with several rude remarks, and the buyer eventually met him in real life to confront him.
In a video recorded by the buyer, the seller apologised profusely for his words.
Carousell has taken the step to suspend the seller from the platform as his behaviour violates their community guidelines, they said on Thursday (4 Jun).
