Alex Jones and his conspiracy-theory peddling site InfoWars have been on the razor's edge of being thrown off online platforms for a while, but this week has likely marked the closest Jones has gotten to being fully booted from social media.
"We apply our policies consistently according to the content in the videos, regardless of the speaker or the channel", a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.
The suspension only affects Jones' personal account.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed in an email to Mashable that it has issued the time-out to Jones after he was found to have violated the social network's "Community Standards". One of the four banned videos had even been marked as acceptable after a moderator reviewed it last month, according to TechCrunch.
The Facebook community guidelines in question state that content that encourages physical harm to others based on their religious or gender identity is forbidden.

Justin Rose was about 18 feet away from going home Friday when he made the birdie putt on the 18th to make the cut on the number. The Englishman, who had only edged his way past the cut, sunk seven birdies to go within two shots of the leaders at four under.
Jones is perhaps best known for falsely claiming the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was staged by actors. Livestreams were being hosted Thursday afternoon by Ron Gibson, who describes his channel as part of Alex Jones' Free Speech Systems network. With stock prices dropping, Facebook will have to do much more than just temporarily block people posting death threats to restore its users' confidence.
There has been no comment yet from InfoWars regarding Facebook's actions so far, though their official response to the YouTube video removal was a result of the channel being "critical of liberalism".
Disclosure: Sean Hollister's wife works for Facebook as an internal video producer.
