Hours before a mass shooter killed 11 people inside the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018, he posted an anti-Muslim rant to his account on Gab, a little-known social network that sold itself on protecting free speech.

Gab was quickly forced offline when domain service providers, hosting companies and a slew of payment companies all pulled support for the site. Many saw it as the beginning of the end for a website that was branded an "online cesspool" of antisemitism, hate speech and racism.
