After some confusion earlier today, Facebook clarified that Jones had personally received a warning previously, and thus earned the punitive 30-day block for the four Community Rules-violating videos he uploaded.
On Thursday, Fox News Tucker CarlsondefendedAlex Jones by somehow drawing a connection between the Infowars conspiracy theorist and his former employee at the Daily Caller, now-CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins. Other people are notified that he is banned, the company said.
One of the removed videos shows a man shoving a child on the ground to "prevent liberalism", while another discusses drag queens in a crude fashion and suggests they are child sexual predators. The spokesperson said the company made a mistake when it initially reviewed the video and corrected it upon reviewing the content again.
Content removals count as "strikes" against individual pages on Facebook.

This month, at a press event in NY about Facebook's efforts to combat misinformation and false news, a reporter from CNN questioned company executives about why Infowars was still allowed to have a Facebook account. Several days later, two parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook shooting wrote an open letter to Zuckerberg, criticizing him for allowing Jones and his followers to use Facebook to harass and intimidate the families of victims. Upon re-review, Facebook chose to take down the video for its violation. Later, the company said it would remove, rather than down-rank, misinformation that could lead to physical violence.
