Over the years, Patreon has seen an increasingly tight set of rules. At times, out-right banning users of the platform for arguably dubious reasons.
Now, it seems Patreon may find anime to be problematic, which is a recurring theme in 2020 for some reason.
@bbq_bq created this tweet in response to what allegedly occurred to the artist @Waero_Re. Claiming this post was from their Patreon;
What the fuck is this shit??? #anime is basically all under age now #patreon? Do you not think for one moment that this is totally lacking any common business sense? If you don't want to do business with independent creators, just come out and say it. pic.twitter.com/6af7MjfNFq

@kakuume chymed in, also apparently having somewhat similar issues;
As you can imagine, people aren’t very happy with Patreon;
Western, leftie comics sell like shit because it's badly drawn and with horrible story and plot
This is their only recourse

Many artists on Patreon have moved over to pixiv. Perhaps another wave of artists leaving Patreon is coming up…
