Apple permanently kicked Alex Jones‘ Infowars app out of its App Store late Friday, further limiting the notorious conspiracy theorist’s reach a day after Twitter banned Jones and Infowars for good.

Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment, but a spokeswoman told The New York Times that the app was pulled because of App Store policies that prohibit content that’s “offensive, insensitive, upsetting, intended to disgust or in exceptionally poor taste.” Infowars didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Jones is the fiery right-wing broadcaster who’s claimed, among other things, that the Sept. 11 attacks were an inside job, that the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was an anti-gun hoax and that Hillary Clinton was involved in a child sex ring run out of a Washington, DC, pizzeria.

He’s currently facing at least five defamation lawsuits, including three filed by families of Sandy Hook victims, according to the Times.
