Amazon Web Services (AWS) suspended Parler effectively putting the website offline at 11:59 PM on Sunday.
Parler has been facing criticism for allowing violent content related to the Capitol riots led by Trump supporters who storm and vandalized the building. Apple and Google have also booted Parler apps from their platforms.
“The processes Parler has put in place to moderate or prevent the spread of dangerous and illegal content have proved insufficient,” Apple wrote to Parler. “Specifically, we have continued to find direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action in violation of Guideline 1.1 – Safety – Objectionable Content.”
“We are clearly being singled out,” Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff told “Fox & Friends Weekend”
“We’re not necessarily being singled out by those tech companies, but certainly by the people who have been putting pressure on them and, in fact, we think we’re being set up in a lot of ways because in looking at some of the content, these are accounts that have been created two days ago and they have few pieces of content and some of them are parodies of what you would think a right-wing insider of violence would be,” said Peikoff.
