The Patreon account of former Rebel Media personality Lauren Southern was banned late last week by the subscription-based crowdfunding website, following a lobbying campaign by the U.K.-based anti-extremism charity HOPE not hate.

"Yes, HOPE not hate lobbied Patreon directly, and they removed everyone connected to Defend Europe from their service," Hope not hate director of communications Nick Ryan told CANADALAND in an email.

If you curious as to how HopeNotHate had enough "lobbying" leverage to make Patreon delete @Lauren_Southern 's account, look no further. pic.twitter.com/DmYwDNp2AU — Nick Monroe (@nickmon1112) July 24, 2017
