American Social Networking Service Gab Gets Suspended After Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

American Social Networking Service Gab Gets Suspended After Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

In yet another mass-shooting in the US, a man named Robert Bowers, 46, is being held as guilty. The deadly shooting at a suburban Pittsburgh synagogue left 11 people dead and six people injured, out of these six, two victims are stated to be in a critical condition. To investigate into this horrific incident, FBI has been roped in.

Interestingly, in-between all this chaos, Gab, an American social networking service, got engulfed. All thanks to the Bowers interest in the anti-Semitic speech that he always conveyed through Gab. Following this revelation, many platforms discontinued their association with the Gab.

The first company to distance itself from the Gab was Paypal. In a statement to The Verge, a PayPal spokesperson said,

"The company is diligent in performing reviews and taking account actions. When a site is explicitly allowing the perpetuation of hate, violence or discriminatory intolerance, we take immediate and decisive action."

Though Gab itself came forward and condemned the brutal attack and even added that they informed the law enforcement officials when they found about the Bowers’s profile, even after that, Gab got the boot from Paypal.

 

 

Right after the Paypal’s blow, cloud hosting company, Joyent and Stripe, a payment processing site suspended their services. Joyent was first to discontinue.

 

 

 

Later that evening, Stripe also announced its move to part ways with Gab.

 

 

 

It's not the first time that Gab has faced the brunt. For violating the company’s hate speech policy, Gab was removed from the Google Play Store in August 2017, and for the same reason, Apple also didn't let it on its App Store. This year, Microsoft also warned Gab for anti-Semitic posts.
