US company will stop supporting 8chan after El Paso shooting

The head of Cloudfare – the U.S. company that helps keep 8chan online – on Sunday said his company will stop hosting the fringe online platform known for supporting white supremacists.

Cloudfare CEO Matthew Prince’s decision comes shortly after the gunman in El Paso, Texas, allegedly posted an anti-immigrant manifesto to 8chan before killing twenty people and injuring two dozen more.

If investigators conclude the manifesto did come from the gunman, it will be the third incident this year in which a suspect is believed to have posted a posted hateful, white extremist screed to 8chan – the anonymous message board which dubs itself the “darkest reaches of the Internet” – before committing a mass shooting.
