After Apple and Google, Amazon has banned “free speech” social network Parler from its web hosting service for failing to curb violent content on its platform in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot last week.

In a span of a little more than 24 hours, the controversial social media site has gone completely offline and now returns a 403 error.

BuzzFeed News first reported the move on Saturday, “The suspension, which will go into effect on Sunday just before midnight, means that Parler will be unable to operate and will go offline unless it can find another hosting service.”

Parler, launched in 2018, bills itself as a free speech alternative for people banned by popular social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter.
