Embuscade Phoenix. Grace, Too The Tragically Hip. Adored Hatchie.In the latest sign that social media giants are feeling the heat for allowing their platforms to amplify voices of extremists, Facebook on Thursday banned conspiracy theorist and InfoWars founder Alex Jones and the accounts of other controversial figures. The company, citing violations of its policies on hate speech and promoting violence, is also blocking religious leader Louis Farrakhan, who is known for sharing anti-Semitic views; Paul Nehlen, a white nationalist who ran for Congress in ; far-right figures Milo Yiannopoulos and Laura Loomer; and conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson.
Those individuals and accounts that represent them are also banned from photo-sharing app Instagram, which Facebook owns. For years Jones had used his Facebook channel to spread the idea that the Sandy Hook shooting, in which 20 children died, was a hoax.
Jones followers took it upon themselves to harass the parents of murdered children. Facebook is clearly feeling pressure. The Menlo Park, Calif. Jones was temporarily suspended from Facebook last summer.
His official fan page was also previously banned, though Jones was allowed to operate a personal account. Twitter permanently blocked InfoWars and Jones in September for violating its harassment policies. Yiannopoulos, the former editor of Breitbart News and a right-wing provocateur, and Loomer, a far-right activist who is also known for spreading conspiracy theories, have both previously been banned from Twitter Inc.
Facebook and other social media sites have long portrayed themselves as neutral platforms that are not responsible for what their users post, said Anthony Nadler, a professor at Ursinus College in Pennsylvania who researches how social networks and ad platforms can assist radicalization and spread disinformation. In March, two weeks after a gunman went live on Facebook before marching into a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, and killing dozens, critics said a semantic loophole in its ban on white supremacy let racism blossom on its platform.
Facebook subsequently banned content that references white nationalism and white separatism. Meanwhile, Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies also have drawn fire from the right, on the claim that they suppress conservative opinion.
Facebook denies its decisions are based on politics. When it comes to dangerous individuals who promote hate speech or violence, Facebook can ban users for actions they take in the real world, or on other services, such as YouTube. Jones, who was banned from YouTube last year, hosted McInnes on his talk show late last year and promoted him on Instagram earlier this year.
The news of the Facebook ban leaked out before the company had actually removed the controversial accounts. That gave Yiannopoulos a chance to notify his followers of the ban and promote his email newsletter, according to screenshots captured by BuzzFeed.
When Facebook bans an individual or organization, it typically also removes posts from other users who praise or support them. A look back, and ahead, at the latest California business news. Hot Property. About Us.Benigni made his acting debut in 's Berlinguer, I Love Youwhich he also wrote, and was directed by Giuseppe Bertolucci.
Benigni's directorial debut was the anthology film Tu mi turbiwhich was also the acting debut of his wife, Nicoletta Braschi. InBenigni made his first English-language film, Down by Lawwritten and directed by Jim Jarmuschwith whom Benigni would make two more films: Night on Earth and Coffee and Cigarettes InBenigni was acclaimed for the film The Little Devilwhich he directed, wrote and starred in. Costarring American actor Walter Matthau and Braschi, the film was shot in alternating takes in both Italian and English.
Benigni continued to have success and acclaim as a director with Johnny Stecchino and The Monsterand portrayed Inspector Clouseau 's son in Son of the Pink Pantheran American-Italian co-production filmed in English, directed by Blake Edwards. His subsequent directorial efforts, Pinocchioin which he played the title characterand The Tiger and the Snowreceived mixed reviews. While he has not directed another film sinceBenigni has continued to act on stage and film, touring Italy with his one man show TuttoDanteand starred in the films To Rome with Lovedirected by Woody Allenand as Mister Geppetto in Matteo Garrone 's adaptation of Pinocchio.
Benigni was born in Manciano La Misericordia a frazione of Castiglion Fiorentinothe son of Isolina Papini —a fabric maker, and Luigi Benigni —a bricklayer, carpenter, and farmer. He was raised Catholic and served as an altar boy ;   he still considers himself a believer. During that autumn he moved to Rome where he took part in some experimental theatre shows, some of which he also directed. Benigni became widely known in Italy in the s for a television series called Onda Liberaon RAI2, produced by Renzo Arborein which he interpreted the satirical piece The Hymn of the Body Purged L'inno del corpo scioltoa scatological song about the joys of defecation.
Bernardo Bertolucci then cast him in a small speechless role as a window upholsterer in the film La Luna which had limited American distribution due to its subject matter.
In he met Cesenate actress Nicoletta Braschiwho became his wife on 26 December and who has starred in most of the films he has directed.
In June he appeared during a public political demonstration by the Italian Communist Partywith which he was a sympathiser, and on this occasion he lifted and cradled the party's national leader Enrico Berlinguer.
It was an unprecedented act, given that until that moment Italian politicians were proverbially serious and formal.
Benigni's first film as director was Tu mi turbi You Upset Me in This film was also his first collaboration with Braschi. The story was a fable in which the protagonists are suddenly thrown back in time to the 15th century, just a little before They start looking for Christopher Columbus in order to stop him from discovering the Americas for very personal reasonsbut are not able to reach him.
Beginning inBenigni starred in three films by American director Jim Jarmusch. The film also starred Braschi as his beloved. In Night on Earthhe played a cabbie in Rome, who causes his passenger, a priest, great discomfort and a heart attack by confessing his bizarre sexual experiences.
Later, he also starred in the first of Jarmusch's series of short films, Coffee and Cigarettes The film bombed in the US, but was a hit in his homeland. The film is about an Italian Jewish man who tries to protect his son's innocence during his internment at a Nazi concentration campby telling him that the Holocaust is an elaborate game and he must adhere very carefully to the rules to win.
More favourable critics praised Benigni's artistic daring and skill to create a sensitive comedy involving the tragedy, a challenge that Charlie Chaplin confessed he would not have done with The Great Dictator had he been aware of the horrors of the Holocaust.
Inthe film was nominated for seven Academy Awards. At the ceremonythe film was awarded the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film which Benigni accepted as the film's directorBest Original Dramatic Score the score by Nicola Piovaniand Benigni received the award for Best Actor the first for a male performer in a non-English-speaking role, and only the third overall acting Oscar for non-English-speaking roles.
Famously, giddy with delight after Life Is Beautiful was announced as the Best Foreign Language Film, Benigni climbed over and then stood on the backs of the seats in front of him and applauded the audience before proceeding to the stage.
After winning his Best Actor Oscar later in the evening, he said in his acceptance speech, "This is a terrible mistake because I used up all my English! On a episode of Saturday Night Livehost Ray Romano played him in a sketch parodying his giddy behavior at the ceremony.
