SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Add PayPal to the list of companies cutting ties with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his website, Infowars.

In a statement, PayPal says Infowars and its sister sites regularly promote hate and intolerance against certain communities and religions.

The online payment service says that behavior runs counter to PayPal's core value of inclusion.

Jones and Infowars have long been criticized for spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation online.

Last month, Apple removed Jones's podcasts from iTunes, while Youtube removed Infowars for repeatedly violating its terms of service.

Twitter permanently suspended Jones from the social media giant earlier this month.
