Beastie Boys, David Gilmour, MCR, Alice In Chains Announce Limited-Edition Releases for Record Store Day Black Friday

The post Beastie Boys, David Gilmour, MCR, Alice In Chains Announce Limited-Edition Releases for Record Store Day Black Friday appeared first on Consequence of Sound.

Proud Boys Website, Online Store Dropped by Web Host

The Proud Boys, an FBI-designated extremist group with ties to white nationalism, lost its web host for the group’s website and online store following efforts from advocacy group Color of Change.

“After a heads up from Color of Change, we notified one of our customers — a website hoster — who then took action. The websites in question were not Google Cloud customers,” a Google Cloud spokesperson told TheWrap on Friday.

As of Friday evening, however, the extremist group appears to have gotten a new host for its website, but the online store is not currently taking orders and a note to online customers says that the “migration to a new webhost has taken longer than anticipated.”

General manager Jessica Wyman said Rolling H staff are promoting the fundraiser through social media and newsletters, and by riding bikes through the community to tell people about it.
