Vimeo on Sunday became the latest media platform to remove Infowars’ account from its website, citing a violation of its Terms of Service standards, Business Insider reports.
Facebook, Apple and YouTube recently removed videos posted by Infowars because founder Alex Jones violated their policies on hate speech. Jones has propagated a number of conspiracy theories, including that the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was a hoax.
