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.

Amazon pulls off record Prime Day despite site glitches
Shoppers, meanwhile, have lots of sales to choose from as other retailers offer promotions to try to take a share of the spending. Prime customers are hugely important to Amazon , as they are known as the site's most frequent and valuable customers.
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".
