One day removed from Blaze Media parting ways with political comedian and commentator, Gavin McInnes, Youtube has terminated his channel. This was brought to attention by Michael Malice (author and host) via his Twitter where he posted two separate screen grabs, captioning it “Gavin’s channel(s) has been deleted from youtube”.

In the one image appears a red bar alerting users trying to visit the channel, “This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.”
Most recently posted to McInnes’ channel was a video where he disassociated himself with the fraternal group he founded, the Proud Boys. McInnes explained that his departure was an attempt to help members (possibly alleviate sentencing) who are being prosecuted for an incident where they clashed against Antifa members. It also came shortly after a report had been covered where the FBI designated the group an “extremist organization” and that it had ties to “White Nationalism,” though said report was later refuted by the FBI in an article by The Washington Post.
