In response to complaints about the content posted to its platform by the far-right conspiracy theorist, Facebook this week suspended Alex Jones’ account for 30 days and removed at least four videos.
The move came in response to content one Facebook spokesperson said violated the company’s terms of service.
“Our Community Standards make it clear that we prohibit content that encourages physical harm [bullying], or attacks someone based on their religious affiliation or gender identity [hate speech],” the statement explained. “We reviewed the content against our Community Standards and determined that it violates.”
In addition to the account suspension, Facebook confirmed the videos were removed in response to an unspecified number of “strikes” against them. It is unclear how many complaints trigger content removal.
YouTube recently took action against the controversial broadcaster, issuing a strike for content it deemed “child endangerment and hate speech.”
Jones and his media property, InfoWars, have disseminated unconfirmed and often deeply divisive theories such as questioning whether deadly school shootings were actually hoaxes.
