Hours after it was revealed that Saturday’s Tree of Life Synagogue shooting suspect was a user of social media network Gab.ai, PayPal severed all ties with the platform with no explanation.

The shooter, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, posted anti-Semitic and anti-Trump rhetoric over Gab, which bills itself as the “home of free speech” due to the minimal censorship employed by the site. Shortly before the shooting, he posted a message to Gab which condemns the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) which he wrote “likes to bring invaders in that kill our people,” before writing: “Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

Following the shooting, Gab quickly removed Bowers’ account and sent all information to the FBI and DOJ. Torba then issued a full statement confirming the alleged attacker’s presence on the site, and noting that Gab had taken immediate action – unlike other social media platforms.
