Last week, YouTube took down four videos from Alex Jones' channel and issued his account one strike -- after receiving three within 90 days a channel will be terminated. The videos were removed for hate speech and child endangerment. Days later, Facebook also took down multiple videos from Jones' account and suspended it for 30 days for violating its community standards. Facebook recently received a lot of pushback over its decision to allow a video -- wherein Jones accuses special counsel Robert Mueller of raping children and pantomimes shooting him -- to remain on its platform.
Meanwhile, Spotify has been facing criticism for hosting episodes of Jones' InfoWars on its service. One user tweeted recently that Spotify had told her that if she made a suggestion on its community page and it got at least 100 votes, they would look into the matter. The suggestion, which was submitted on Monday, requests that the company "please consider banning Alex Jones' InfoWars podcast" for his "hatefilled and inaccurate 'reporting.'" As of writing, it had received nearly 1,600 votes.
Spotify also came under fire recently for a "hateful conduct" policy that it put in place and then used to pull R. Kelly music from its playlists. Following backlash over the move, it later dropped the policy.
