Payments processor PayPal has removed the account of Rebel News without an explanation. The outlet says it is “facing a coordinated attack by Big Tech.“
Rebel News is a conservative news outlet that often criticizes Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government. More recently, the outlet has been critical of the government‘s response to the pandemic, especially lockdowns.
On Friday, the news outlet tweeted that it had been canceled by PayPal.
“Rebel News is facing a coordinated attack by Big Tech. First YouTube censored and demonetized us, now PayPal has come for their pound of flesh,“ the outlet‘s official account tweeted.
