InfoWars' Facebook Link Ban Tied to 'Hate Figure' Designation of Gavin McInnes

InfoWars' Facebook Link Ban Tied to 'Hate Figure' Designation of Gavin McInnes | 06 May 2019 | n statements provided to Big League Politics, Facebook revealed that their decision to designate Alex Jones a "hate figure" was made, in part, because Jones interviewed Gavin McInnes on his broadcast and allegedly posted the interviews to Facebook. When explaining their decision to name Jones a "hate figure," Facebook said the decision was partially inspired by Jones interviewing McInnes, who founded the Proud Boys and co-founded VICE News. According to Facebook, Jones interviewed McInnes twice and expressed positive sentiments of support toward him, which Facebook says is against the rules. Facebook says users are allowed to refer to McInnes, but may not express support for him or depict him positively. This is the reason many mainstream media sources are allowed to show video featuring McInnes and post articles with his statements and InfoWars was not.
