Facebook and Instagram are banning British far-right activist Tommy Robinson for what they said were violations of their community standards.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is being removed from both platforms because he posted anti-Muslim content and engaged in activity offline supporting hate figures and groups, Facebook said in a statement.
“Tommy Robinson’s Facebook Page has repeatedly broken these standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims,” Facebook said.
“This is not a decision we take lightly, but individuals and organizations that attack others on the basis of who they are have no place on Facebook and Instagram.”
Facebook said Robinson had violated its policies with posts calling Muslims “filthy scum bags” and calling on people to “make war” on Muslims, as well as multiple videos showing people being bullied.
His official Facebook page had more than 1 million followers and likes.
Robinson was given a final written warning on January 24.
Since then, Facebook said it became aware of more unacceptable activity on its platforms, as well as hate speech and calls for violence by Robinson in public.
Facebook has banned Robinson from setting up an official page or Instagram profile in the future. Twitter and PayPal both banned Robinson last year.
Robinson, 35, has become a figurehead for the far-right in Britain, attracting thousands of followers online and at protests.
Last year he was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court for live-streaming videos to Facebook from outside a trial.
Some prominent right-wing figures in the United States, including President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon, have expressed support for him.
He has previously been convicted of assault, drug and public order offenses, mortgage fraud and using someone else’s passport to travel to the United States.
In November, Robinson was appointed an adviser to the UK Independence Party, which led to several UKIP members quitting in protest.
