In fact, Jones appeared on a livestreamed Facebook video on his page today, shortly after the suspension went into effect, in which he claimed that he was the victim of a media conspiracy to "de-platform" conservative voices.
Earlier this week, YouTube gave Jones a light punishment for violating its policies against "violent or graphic content" by giving him a strike, which merely prevents Jones from livestreaming on the platform for 90 days.

"We also have a clear three strikes policy and we terminate channels when they receive three strikes in three months".
And in case you didn't think this was a big issue, we'll remind you that Alex Jones has 2.5 million subscribers on YouTube.
First published July 26 at 9 p.m. PT. Update, July 27 at 9:15 a.m. PT: Adds that despite the ban, Jones' show is still streaming live on multiple Facebook pages. The suspension does not stop other page administrators from posting to his personal page or the page of Infowars.
