Alex Jones’ day of reckoning continues.
YouTube just became the latest platform to remove Jones’ account for violating its policies. The Alex Jones channel, which had more than 2 million subscribers, was yanked from YouTube Monday.
“This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” reads a message posted to the top of the page where his account used to be.
YouTube’s move comes on the heels of similar actions from other major platforms. Facebook pulled four pages belonging to the InfoWars host earlier in the day, and Apple removed several of his podcasts from iTunes and its Podcasts app Sunday night. YouTube had previously warned Jones with several “strikes,” but hadn’t delivered an outright ban.
With the YouTube ban, Twitter becomes one of the last major platforms still available to the talkshow host and conspiracy theorist. On Monday, he took to Twitter-owned Periscope to rail against “being banned from the internet.” He urged his supporters to buy his supplements and make memes about the YouTube ban.
In a statement, a YouTube spokesperson said the company removes accounts that repeatedly violate its policies.
“All users agree to comply with our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines when they sign up to use YouTube. When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts.”
