Parler CEO Is Fired After “Crack Down On Domestic Terrorists” Inside The Conservative-Friendly Site

  • Parler, the far-right-friendly social media site that was knocked offline after the violent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol, has fired its CEO. “I did not participate in this decision,” Matze, 27, who is based in Henderson, Nev., said.
  • John Matze said the company removed him as chief executive, following a fight with conservative donor Rebekah Mercer, who controls Parler’s board, after an apparent fight over the future of free speech on Parler.
  • In an interview with NPR, Matze claimed that there was a dispute with Mercer over just how far Parler would take its openness to free speech. He said that if the company wanted to succeed, Parler would have crack down on domestic terrorists and any groups that incite violence, including the Trump-supporting conspiracy theory QAnon.
