A mere matter of days after InfoWars founder Alex Jones received yet another YouTube strike — but wasn’t banned — he’s been hit with a 30-day block on Facebook. Jones received another strike on YouTube this week for violating community guidelines in four videos, which have since been taken down.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed in an email that the social network has enforced a 30-day time out for Jones after he was found to have violated Facebook’s Community Standards. So, what exactly is a 30-day block? Essentially, the block will be applied to any pages managed by Jones, in addition to Jones himself. This means he won’t be able to post content to any pages that he’s “page admin” for.
Facebook enforce 30-day bans in the case of multiple violations. Prior to this ban, Jones has received a notification from Facebook informing him that he had repeatedly violated its policies and informing him that if he did so again, he’d receive a 30-day ban.
