Apple has removed the app for Infowars, the conspiracy website founded by Alex Jones, for violating App Store guidelines, according to published reports.
According to The New York Times, Apple removed the app for violating guidelines that don’t allow apps to provide content considered “offensive, insensitive, upsetting, intended to disgust or in exceptionally poor taste.”
Apple could not be immediately reached for comment. Details of the ban were first reported by Buzzfeed.
The removal of Infowars from the App Store follows Twitter’s announcement Thursday that it had permanently suspended Jones and his site from the platform “based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations.”
