Former right-wing activist and CRTV host Gavin McInnes has been booted from YouTube, the latest social network to terminate relationships with him, and/or his organization, the Proud Boys.
On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that YouTube banned McInnes, who accumulated over 220,000 subscribers prior to the ban.
An alert appears when visiting McInnes’s YouTube channel, saying that it has been terminated after “multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement.”
“When a copyright holder notifies us of a video that infringes on their copyright, we act quickly to remove content as is required of us by law,” a YouTube spokesperson told AF-MG.com. “We terminate the accounts of repeat offenders.”
McInnes has also been booted off of Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and Paypal.
Last week, BlazeTV, the new company created by the merger of Glenn Beck’s “The Blaze” and Mark Levin’s “CRTV,” cut ties with McInnes.
The Proud Boys consider themselves “a pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world; aka Western Chauvinists.”
They have been labeled a hate group, by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
McInnes did disavow the group, but said it isn’t a white nationalist or alt-right organization.
