QAnon is a broad, baseless conspiracy theory about a "deep state" network powerful government, business and media personalities waging a secret war against Donald Trump.

A Facebook spokeswoman said the group was removed because it "repeatedly posted content that violated our policies."

Last month, so the Twitter as well as the TikTok they also removed content related to the group's conspiracy theories.

Twitter banned thousands of accounts and said it would block QAnon URLs, while TikTok deleted all hashtag related to videos of the respective group.

The deleted Facebook group, called Official Q / QAnon, had almost 200.000 members.
