of controversial Alex Jones
Apple has removed the Infowars app from controversial conspiracy thinker Alex Jones. According to the tech giant, Jones has broken the content guidelines of the App Store in his podcast. Earlier, on Thursday, Jones’ Twitter account was also permanently suspended.
According to Reuters , Jones has violated his ban on ‘defamatory, discriminatory or otherwise malicious content, especially if it humiliates, intimidates or endangers a specific group’. Earlier already loose episodes of Infowars from iTunes were taken, but Apple goes a big step further.
One of the standpoints that Jones supports is that the shooting in 2012 in the American town of Sandy Hook, which killed 20 primary schools, was invented by leftist groups that want to see firearm possession in the US prohibited. Representatives from Jones could not be reached by Reuters for comment on Friday night.
The Twitter permaban that Jones received on Thursday has the same motivation . Twitter states that the Jones accounts and podcast are suspended for “violations of the rules against offensive content, now and in the past.” In response to that sanction, Jones said: “We are being addressed not because we are lying, but because we are speaking the truth and because we are popular.”
At the beginning of August, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify also took steps to get Alex Jones off their platforms.Viewing:-22
