Apple, Facebook & Spotify Delete Alex Jones’ Content For Glorifying Violence

Apple on Monday deleted most of the podcasts of the far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, while Facebook removed four of his online pages which the social media platform accused of “glorifying violence.”
Facebook stressed that it was the violent language used by Jones, rather than his conspiracy theories, that prompted the move. Spotify, the streaming music online service, had already removed a number of Jones’ podcasts last week, accusing them of breaking its own hate-speech rules. 
Jones, whose site InfoWars has accused victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting of being “actors” in a plot to discredit the gun lobby, had violated Apple, Spotify & Facebook’s hate speech policies.

Gunman Adam Lanza killed 26 people, including 20 children, when he launched his rampage in the Connecticut school. Jones has repeatedly claimed the massacre was a hoax
and that the parents of the murdered first-graders were actors, an accusation that has sparked death threats against some of the bereaved mothers and fathers.

Several of the families have sued the 44-year-old Texan, accusing him of using their suffering to expand his audience. Jones has counter-sued, demanding in turn that they pay his court costs.

Among the conspiracy theories Jones has peddled are charges that the US government was behind numerous terrorist attacks, including the September 11, 2001 strikes on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
