Andrew Torba, founder of conservative social network Gab.ai, has been removed from Y Combinator's alumni network.

To be clear, Gab.ai isn't a part of YC — instead, Torba participated in the incubator through his previous startup, Kuhcoon (now known as Automate Ads). However, his login to YC's private social network, Bookface, has now been disabled.

"Once you're purged from the network, you've lost all the ability to interact and network and post job listings and connect with different founders," Torba said.
