Facebook Suspends InfoWars’ Alex Jones For 30 Days For Offensive Videos

Alex Jones

The videos have been removed and Infowars and Jones' pages "are close to being unpublished given recent community standards violations", Facebook said in a statement.

The suspension from Facebook came just days after YouTube removed four videos from Jones's account.

Earlier this week, YouTube gave Jones a light punishment for violating its policies against "violent or graphic content" by giving him a strike, which merely prevents Jones from livestreaming on the platform for 90 days.

The account dynamic on Facebook also poses complications: Jones is banned from posting for the next 30 days, but all other admins for Jones' channel and InfoWars are not. In another video, Jones drew a comparison between an animated drag queen show to Satanism.

Facebook pointed out that it immediately removes content of a bullying nature that encourages physical harm or attacks someone based on their religious affiliation or gender identity.

Facebook has taken action against Jones, suspending him for violating a numbers of its policies against hate speech and bullying.

The suspension only affects Jones' own Facebook account and not that of InfoWars', which can continue to post videos of such nature until it faces the same sort of consequences.

Yankees Acquire JA Happ In Trade With Blue Jays
Two years later, the Cubs flipped McKinney, Gleyber Torres , Rashad Crawford and Adam Warren to the Yankees for Aroldis Chapman . A rival evaluator said he still projects as an everyday player because of his above-average hitting ability and average power.

YouTube has given Jones' channel multiple strikes before-after three strikes, the site will ban a user permanently-but after three months, a strike expires.

CNN reported last week that the InfoWars Facebook page has skirted a number disciplinary measures that Facebook has in place to enforce its community guidelines.

Back in February, he reportedly received a YouTube strike for a conspiracy theory video about the Parkland, Fla. high school shooting. In the statement, Jones accused CNN of publicly calling for the banning of his free speech and of being on a "campaign against competing news organizations and the First Amendment", which he called "outrageously anti-American".

Disclosure: Sean Hollister's wife works for Facebook as an internal video producer. The fourth was reported about one month ago, but Facebook incorrectly determined that it did not violate its community standards at the time.

As a result, the pages remain up and other administrators can still post content to them.

"What we're trying to do is make it so that, if you are saying something that is untrue, you're allowed to say it, as long as you an authentic person", Simo said.
