Proud Boys Founder Gavin McInnes Loses Gig With Blaze TV

Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes will not be working with BlazeTV, the conservative outlet announced less than one week after he joined the company to host a show, according to The Hill. McInnes, who before becoming an alt-right darling was best known for co-founding Vice, was poised to host “Get Off My Lawn,” a show that was reportedly similar to his “Get Off My Lawn” podcast. BlazeTV co-president, Gaston Mooney, had previously touted McInnes as a “provocateur,” telling CNN that he was “one of the many varied voices and viewpoints on Blaze Media platforms.” But McInnes has become embroiled in more and more embarrassing controversy of late for his ties to the Proud Boys. Members of the alt-right organization were recently accused of attacking left-leaning protesters at a demonstration in New York City. McInnes claims to have disavowed his affiliation with the Proud Boys. “Blaze Media no longer has a relationship with Gavin McInnes, and per company policy, cannot comment on personnel matters,” the company tweeted on Saturday. Blaze Media launched after Glen Beck’s The Blaze and Conservative Review’s CRTV merged this month, The Hill notes.
