Alex Jones content taken down by Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify

Infowars’ host Alex Jones

Additionally, the site notes that the suspension was at least in part due to Jones and InfoWars' efforts to circumvent the live-streaming ban that YouTube put in place last week.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a message for comment Monday. The company first removed four videos from four Facebook pages after receiving reports that hate speech and bullying policies were violated.

Spotify, which blocked a number of episodes of Alex Jones's show last week, broadened the ban on Monday to include all episodes of his show. And YouTube recently took down four videos from Jones' channel, saying they violated its policies on hate speech and child endangerment. But Infowars and Jones have long peddled conspiracy theories, including that the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 was a hoax. Several families affected by the shooting, and an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who responded to the attack, have sued Jones for defamation.

Sleeping Giant, a social media activism organization that had been lobbying Apple to stop listing material by Jones, celebrated the move in a statement on Twitter.

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. It also suspended the personal profile of Jones. But Facebook said unpublished pages can appeal that decision.

"We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions", the statement continued.

Last season, Ramsey featured in 30 outings across all competitions, bagging 11 goals and 12 assists which earned him the club's player of the season award.

YouTube completely removed The Alex Jones Channel and the Infowars Interviews Monday afternoon after the page received multiple strikes for violating the company's community standards.

The embattled Silicon Valley company says the InfoWars' pages were removed after users complained the news outlet published content that possessed "dehumanizing language", to "describe people who are transgender, Muslims, and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies".

Apple has reportedly axed most of American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones's right-wing Infowars podcasts from iTunes and its podcast app.

Companies wary of accusations of censorship have until now refrained from taking action against Jones, but Dockray said that Jones's increased rhetoric made the decisions to block Infowars an easy call. It appears that Silicon Valley is exhausted of Jones' rhetoric, and he has been taken off of several prominent social media and streaming sites. "When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts", a spokesperson said.

Welcome to Alex Jones' bad, horrible, no good, chemtrail-filled day.
