Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes was banned from Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday, and Facebook also removed and banned both public and private groups affiliated with Proud Boys.

The far-right club, which only admits men, was exposed by the Daily Beast Wednesday for social media posts with racist images and promoting violence against liberals.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that the company is banning McInnes because his pages violate Facebook’s rules against hate groups.

McInnes, a co-founder of Vice, was banned from Twitter in August.

The organization had also used Gab, a much smaller social media site, which was shut down after it was found that an account presumed to belong to the gunman in the weekend's Pittsburgh synagogue shooting used the site to spew anti-Semitic rhetoric.

The ban comes after at least five members of Proud Boys were arrested after they allegedly attacked protesters during an Oct. 12 event in New York. Reports indicate that the men yelled homophobic slurs during the alleged assault.

The Proud Boys have been associated with violence and describes its members as "Western Chauvinists."
