8chan dropped after linked to mass shootings

8chan is a message board that has become a notorious site for users to share radicalized and racist ideologies. The site has been struggling to stay online in the past 24 hours because it's service providers have decided to drop them after a hate filled manifesto allegedly posted by the El Paso shooter was shared to the message board. This manifesto was posted minutes before the shooter killed 22 people and injured dozens more as he entered a Texas Walmart. Racist, antisemitic and anti-Muslim manifestos were posted to 8chan ahead of the Christchurch Massacre and Poway shooting as well. The internet infrastructure, Cloudflare interrupted their support of 8chan early Monday morning. Since then, Voxility also dropped their support of the message board. One of the administrators of 8chan tweeted "We will be moving to another service asap. Please excuse any downtime as we migrate to a new service."
