Facebook confirmed the banning in a blog post, saying the four InfoWars pages were targeted due to "repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes". If that appeal fails, then the pages will be permanently removed from the site. "Spotify can confirm it has removed specific episodes of The Alex Jones Show podcast for violating our hate content policy".
YouTube's move comes on the heels of similar actions from other major platforms.
YouTube is the latest site to remove content produced by Alex Jones, the political commentator and conspiracy theorist. Jones and Infowars had a combined total of more than 2.5 million followers on Facebook across their pages. The lawsuit was heard last week in Texas, with Jones' attorney arguing that his clients' assertions are protected by free speech.
Jones has amassed a large following on the right while promulgating conspiracy theories that claim terror attacks such as 9/11 were actually carried out by the government.
The Alex Jones channel began to accumulate strikes after posting clips in which it argued the February 14 shooting at a Florida high school involved survivors described as "crisis actors".

Last week, YouTube also took action against Jones, banning InfoWars from its live-streaming platform for three months. Spotify decided that Jones' podcasts were "hate content" and removed several from its platform. But a YouTube spokesperson told CNN that "When users violate ... policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts".
Rather than some shadowy Illuminati figures orchestrating the whole shut down of Alex Jones, activists had actually been lobbying tech platforms to cut ties with Alex Jones and InfoWars. "If they were to ban Alex Jones", he said, he'd question why the company doesn't ban "outright white supremacists, including those who have participated in violent rallies".
It said in a statement: "We take reports of hate content seriously". Apple cited a breach of their hate speech guidelines as the reason for dropping Alex Jones' work.
