"Apple does not tolerate hate speech", the company said in a statement. Last week, Facebook removed four videos on four of Jones' pages for violating its hate speech and bullying policies, according to a statement put out by the media platform.
Facebook is the latest tech company to take action against Jones, the Austin, Texas-based "Infowars" host, after facing growing social media backlash. "In addition, one of the admins of these Pages - Alex Jones - was placed in a 30-day block for his role in posting violating content to these Pages", Facebook continued. Also per CNET, "Jones has been widely criticized for promoting untrue, virulent hypotheses about tragic events like the 2001 terrorist attacks on World Trade Center in NY that killed almost 3,000 people and the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in CT that killed 26 students and staff".

Apple's decision to remove all episodes of Jones' popular show - rather than just specific offending episodes - is one of the largest enforcement actions meant to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date.

Facebook followed suit, taking down four of Jones's most popular pages and effectively banning him from the site.

Jones and Infowars have faced accusations of using these platforms to spread falsehoods and conspiracy theories. Among Infowars' millions of followers is none other than US President Donald Trump, who appeared on his show in 2015, praising the conspiracy theorist's reputation and promising "I will not let you down".
