Social media accounts belonging to Cesar Sayoc, the man charged in connection to several dangerous packages sent to Democrats across the country, are disappearing in light of his arrest.

A spokesperson from Facebook confirmed to The Washington Times that his accounts were taken down from Facebook and Instagram.

“There is absolutely no place on our platforms for people who attempt such horrendous acts,” the spokesperson said, “We will also continue to remove content that praises or supports the bombing attempt or the suspect as soon as we’re aware.”

Mr. Sayoc’s Twitter page has also been shut down.

Each account was filled with anti-liberal messages, many harshly disparaging prominent Democrats. The most recent on his Twitter page targeted George Soros, who was the first to receive what was described as an IED by federal authorities.

The Washington Post was able to access his Facebook pages before they were shut down, though they appeared to be inactive since 2016. In one of his last posts, Mr. Sayoc posted a rant about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Obama, both of whom received packages this week.

“Clinton is worst on terrorism. Her and Obama have made America weak and open to world terrorist attacks,” the post read. “We can’t afford to put Americans in harms way , as her Obama has done. There has never been so many terrorist attack on American soil than Obama, Clinton administration.”
