Twitter banned Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos last week for his anti-feminist views.
The platform then blocked him from its service for his tweets on “The Outhouse,” a podcast hosted by conservative pundit and Breitbart Tech commentator Milo Yiannopoulos.
In a statement, Twitter’s head of policy, Emil Michael, defended the decision.
He said the company does not have the authority to decide whether a person is offensive or offensive but only to determine if they violate its policies.
“The decision to ban a user based on that user’s political views is not a decision we make lightly, and we take it seriously,” Michael wrote.
Yiannopoulos has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, saying his administration’s attacks on free speech have resulted in a rise in violence.
His podcast, “The Daily Show,” has since been shut down by Twitter for “disparaging, harassing, and inciting behavior.”
Yiannopoulos was also blocked from Twitter for his controversial views on race and feminism in February, but was reinstated in March.
The move to ban Yiannopoulos came on the heels of a report in The Atlantic, which detailed how the site blocked Milo Yiannopoulos’ Twitter account because of “disputed facts.”
In his tweets, Yiannopoulos described a fictional character named Milo as a “faggot,” a “bitch,” and a “cunt.”
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In the podcast, Yiannopoulos also said that black people are “dicks” and “rapists,” and suggested that a man be killed for saying that women are “the real victims.”
The “Outhouse” podcast has been featured on other conservative outlets, including Breitbart News and The Blaze.
Milo Yiannopoulos, Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos is a popular Breitbart Tech personality, and has been profiled on the web by many of the site’s most famous personalities, including Sean Hannity, Alex Jones, and Steve Bannon.
Milo also hosts a podcast called “The Milo Yiannopoulos Show” that is now a popular podcast.
Yiannopoulos also hosts the show “The Red Pill” on the same network, which was once run by Bannon, who was ousted from the site in 2017.
Twitter has previously taken action against Milo, including banning the Breitbart Tech co-founder in March 2018.
After the company suspended Milo, Twitter then suspended him from the platform after he posted a video of himself being choked by a group of men.
Yiannopoulos said in a video that he is not in a position to be held responsible for the behavior of the men.
“What I am doing here is saying that these are the kinds of people that get into the room with me, and if that happens I want to do something about it,” Yiannopoulos said, adding that he wanted to be “a champion for the people.”
Yiannopoulos’ suspension was reversed after his suspension was renewed.
The company later reinstated him after it was found that his tweets were offensive, although he did not agree with them.
Milo has been suspended from Twitter in the past for tweeting misogynistic and anti-Semitic comments.
Milo, who has also been suspended for posting pro-Trump memes, has repeatedly called for people to boycott Twitter and to stop using the platform to harass other users.
“It’s not a fair fight,” Milo said in an interview with CNN in May 2018.
“You have to be able to walk away and say, ‘This is how you do it.’
It’s not the fight of your life.
It’s just a very expensive, exhausting, painful, exhausting battle.”
