Notorious anti-LGBT conspiracy theory outlet InfoWars has been banned from Facebook for violating hate speech rules – after calling for drag queens to be burned alive. The pro-Trump outlet is best known for outspoken conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who pushes a large number of conspiracy theories to his online following via his InfoWars shows. Jones’ shows often devolve into hate-filled rants, and on several occasions, he has made extremist comments towards people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants. Facebook today announced that it had removed InfoWars from its platform for repeatedly breaching hate speech rules.
