Vimeo has pulled Infowars content from its site for violating the platform’s standards.
A spokesperson for the video hosting service told Business Insider on Sunday that the Infowars videos “violated our Terms of Service prohibitions on discriminatory and hateful content.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The videos had been uploaded to the site on Thursday and Friday. The Vimeo spokesperson also told Business Insider that the company had told the account owner of the videos’ removal, and also issued a refund because “we do not want to profit from content of this nature in any way.”
The site reported that Infowars had less than a dozen videos on the platform as of Wednesday, but that more than 50 videos were posted to the site on the following days.
Vimeo reportedly determined that the content violated the company’s trust and safety standards within 48 hours of the videos being posted.
Business Insider reported that Vimeo CEO Anjali Sud will announce the removal of the Infowars content during a town hall meeting on Monday.
Vimeo is the latest platform to pull content posted by Infowars or its founder Alex Jones. Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and Apple Podcasts have all recently banned or removed content from the site or its controversial conspiracy theorist founder.
