Gab user’s antisemitic posts removed
Two antisemitic posts have been deleted from fringe social network Gab after Microsoft, citing the content, threatened to take the site down.
The posts were made by Patrick Little, who says he is running for US president and wants to remove Jewish people from America.
Microsoft hosts Gab on its Azure cloud service.
Gab’s founder Andrew Torba said that one of the posts “unquestionably” broke the site’s rules.
The social network describes itself as a platform for free speech, but much of the content on the site presents far-right viewpoints, including racist and antisemitic posts.
