He'll not be pleased with this.
Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been banned from Facebook for 30 days.
Facebook has taken action against Jones, suspending him for violating a numbers of its policies against hate speech and bullying.
The company received a number of reports related to four different videos on Jones' page, as well as his more popular page 'Infowars'.
A Facebook spokesperson told The Guardian that Jones was found to have violated its community standards, saying: “Our community standards make it clear that we prohibit content that encourages physical harm (bullying), or attacks someone based on their religious affiliation or gender identity (hate speech).
The four videos have now been taken down.
YouTube had taken the same action beforehand, pulling down the same four videos, for the same reasons.
One of the videos featured Jones stating that Muslims were taking control over European countries, with another one of the videos comparing drag queens to Satanists.
