Amazon is removing the fast-growing social media network Parler from its web hosting service, according to an email obtained by BuzzFeed News. Amazon confirmed the authenticity of the letter to Insider.




Amazon Web Services said Parler violated its terms of service due to an increase in violent content shared on the website.




Unless Parler is able to find an alternative hosting platform, the website will go offline Sunday night.




The move comes after Google and Apple banned the Parler app from their app stores, also for violating policies by failing to remove violent content.
