Last week, Facebook removed four videos on four of Jones' pages for violating its hate speech and bullying policies, according to a statement put out by the media platform. At least, that's what his lawyer told a judge when Jones was embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife previous year.
YouTube previously banned livestream videos from Jones for three months that contained hate speech against Muslims and transgender people and another video that included an instance of child endangerment late last month.
Facebook's removal of Jones' pages follows criticism of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's interview with Recode in July. At the same time, Facebook has been criticized by conservatives for what they perceive as a liberal bias against conservative outlets.
In recent weeks, several online platforms have removed Jones' content from their sites.

Police, France was pulled over after driving through a stop sign in the Hamptons at approximately 7:30 p.m. France was arrested, held overnight and released after he was arraigned on Monday morning, police said.
"Consistent with our existing policies, we take action against accounts that repeatedly save content that could lead to harm", a company spokesperson said. But he continued to regularly appear on Facebook after the suspension, showing up in livestreams hosted by other accounts, and even making first-person posts to his personal page, by publishing them using the accounts of other administrators in Infowars.
Alex Jones Took To Twitter To Complain About "This Hate Speech BS".
"We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community", a representative said on Monday. In a statement, Apple said it "does not tolerate hate speech" and said it believes in "representing a wide range of views" so long as people are "respectful" of those with differing opinions.
Soon thereafter, Jones and his podcast was banned by Spotify and five of the six Infowars podcasts were removed from Apple.
Alex Jones is a controversial radio and podcast host based in Austin, Texas.
Jones has not directly addressed the elimination of his content on these platforms, but did retweet a few people, including InfoWars employee Paul Joseph Watson, who criticized the move as an attack on free speech.
Families of some of the victims have sued him for defamation and he now admits the shooting occurred but says his claims were free speech. It appears that Silicon Valley is exhausted of Jones' rhetoric, and he has been taken off of several prominent social media and streaming sites. He is seeking to have the cases dismissed.
