Shutterstock is a leading global technology company offering “a creative platform for high-quality assets, tools and services.” The company licenses images, video, music, and editorial assets — as well as custom content tailored to a brand’s needs.
Apparently these images include the outright antisemitic.
Hi Dennis. The photo is currently under review. Our compliance team is looking into whether this image violates our terms of service or not. That said, our terms of service specifically prohibit using content in any way that’s derogatory to any person or group.

The images were just removed 5 minutes before this post, but not before complaints about the foot-dragging were sent their way, as well as this equally bewildering response from Shutterstock:
Hello Betro! We can assure you that any reports made are investigated by our compliance team. We're not able to disclose any information regarding third-party licensing. Have a good one!

even though there is nothing Jewish about the lady in the photos, nor in the description.
And it seems as though there still may be some antisemitic images on the site
How did Shutterstock allow these images on their site to begin with? And why the need for a 5-day review? What is clear is that Shutterstock not only does not take Jew hatred seriously, but it has been peddling in it.
Update: And there’s more.
