Facebook bans far-right Proud Boys after violent clash

Facebook Inc. has started banning pages affiliated with the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group that was involved in a violent brawl in New York City earlier this month.

Business Insider first reported late Tuesday that the Proud Boys and founder Gavin McInnis will be banned from Facebook and Instagram, as well as public and personal accounts linked to the organization’s members.

As of late Tuesday night, the Proud Boys’ main Facebook page, which had more than 20,000 likes, had been taken down, but pages featuring McInnis’s videos and local Proud Boys pages were still active.
