Jones has been barred from numerous social media platforms, including Twitter and YouTube.

This combination of 2018 file photos shows minister Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Some free speech advocates have cautioned that Facebook's attempts to police hate speech could lead to unintended consequences. "We are monitoring and watching, closely!"

Minister Louis Farrakhan's profile was one of many marked "dangerous" removed from Facebook and its other services including Instagram and dedicated fan pages. "Facebook and Instagram will remove any content containing InfoWars videos, radio segments, or articles (unless the post is explicitly condemning the content), and Facebook will also remove any groups set up to share Infowars content and events promoting any of the banned extremist figures, according to a company spokesperson".

"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology", Facebook said in a statement yesterday. Before its permanent ban, Facebook had taken more limited action targeting users such as Jones, who has threatened journalists and attacked the victims of the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. When Facebook announced in March that it was upping its efforts to ban white nationalism from its platform, ACLU staff attorney Vera Eidelman cautioned that "every time Facebook makes the choice to remove content, a single company is exercising an unchecked power to silence individuals and remove them from what has become an indispensable platform". His account was subsequently reinstated, but apparently blocked once again last month over a separate tweet. Nevertheless, critics of Facebook argue the criteria and scope of their bans are deeply alarming, as they lend greater legitimacy to the pages they choose to tolerate while cutting off debate as a superior answer to objectionable speech.

Louis Farrakhan is known for his homophobic and anti-Semitic views.

Snoop continued: "I stand with him, I'm with him".
