The decision came just hours after the controversial conspiracy theorist’s Facebook page was similarly removed for allegedly violating its policies on graphic violence and hate speech.
As of Monday afternoon, YouTube channels for InfoWars and InfoWars Live had also been terminated.
In a statement, a YouTube spokesperson said the decision follows prior warnings to Jones about his content.
“When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts,” the company said in an email.
Apple and Spotify have similarly removed his content.
