Alex Jones remains a thorn in the side of the United States, pushing his nonsense like the suggestion that Special Counsel for the Robert Mueller investigation Robert Mueller is a pedophile and that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax. Now, the consequences of his repugnant words are continuing to pile up.
The audio streaming giant Spotify has confirmed that it’s removed a number of episodes of The Alex Jones Show from its platform.
The company shared with The Washington Post:
‘We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community. Spotify can confirm it has removed specific episodes of ‘The Alex Jones Show’ podcast for violating our hate content policy.’
The move follows YouTube removing four InfoWars videos and banning the InfoWars channel from livestreaming for 90 days. Facebook also took a similar step, removing four videos and banning Jones’ personal account for 30 days. The backlash grew after the aforementioned recent claims about Mueller, to which Jones added a willingness to shoot the special counsel.
On a different front, Jones faces a number of lawsuits over some of the false claims he’s made. A man he falsely identified as the gunman behind the Parkland school shooting is suing, as are families of the Sandy Hook victims. Jones wants one Sandy Hook family to reimburse him for a whopping $100,000 in court costs.
Although the challenges to Jones’ agenda continue to pile up, he’s been able in the past to count on one high ranking backer. As recently as last week, he claimed that none other than U.S. President Donald Trump keeps tabs on his show, asking for and being delivered transcripts of the productions.
