Last month Apple removed infowars podcast from their podcast directory but left their app available in the AppStore, now a month later Apple has confirmed that it has permanently removed the Infowars application from the App Store.
Apple didn’t give any indication as to why they decided to only now remove the app instead they pointed quieries to their AppStore guidelines
“Defamatory, discriminatory, or mean-spirited content, including references or commentary about religion, race, sexual orientation, gender, national/ethnic origin, or other targeted groups, particularly if the app is likely to humiliate, intimidate, or place a targeted individual or group in harm’s way.”
Interestingly Apple’s decision comes just a day after Twitter permanently banned Infowars and Alex Jones from its platform. Downloads of the app rocketed after the podcast was removed, and allowed users to read articles from the website, as well as listen to programming from Alex Jones.
