Separately on Wednesday, YouTube said it wouldn't allow the account spreading the homophobic and racist videos against the Vox reporter to earn advertising revenue anymore.
Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, which researches antisemitism, said it had provided input to YouTube on the policy change. YouTube and Twitter had banned Jones in August 2018.
