The free speech social network Gab has been taken offline after being banned by web domain registrar GoDaddy, shopping cart service Shopify, PayPal, payment processor Stripe, web host service Joylent and even blog site Medium since being blamed by the media for the mass shooting in Pittsburgh.

Attorney General John Shapiro told CBS Philly on Monday: “Were also going to be conducting independently a review of the social media platform Gab, used by this individual in Pittsburgh. We’re going to do everything we can to support law enforcement and do our work as well to keep people safe.”

The media is going after Torba’s friends and family:
