A day after online platforms Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube came under heavy criticism for failing to quickly remove a horrifying video of Friday's mass shooting in New Zealand, a video recorded and live streamed by the accused killer himself, as ABC News reported, the CEO of a U.S. internet company posted a new link to the horrifying video on Twitter.
While Inquisitr will not link to the video or the tweet that provides the new URL for the sickening footage, it was posted to Twitter by Rob Monster, the CEO of Epik.com, a domain registry that made headlines last October when it accepted the registration for Gab.com, an online discussion platform widely used by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and other types of right-wing extremists.
Gab.com was kicked off the popular domain hosting site GoDaddy, after Robert Bowers — accused of a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, synagogue that killed 11 — was discovered to have posted numerous anti-Semitic messages on the forum, according to Domain Name Wire, an industry news site.
In an Epik.com blog post, Monster said that he was accepting the Gab.com domain because "De-Platforming is digital censorship. Blacklisting is digital shunning." Monster added that he would "look forward to partnering with a young, and once brash, CEO who is courageously doing something that looks useful," referring to Gab.com founder Andrew Torba.
