Infowars founder Alex Jones on Wednesday will ask a court to dismiss a defamation lawsuit against him and his website that was filed by the parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, according to Reuters.

Jones, who is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, has always been a controversial figure for his conspiracy theories surrounding the September 11 terror attacks and the Sandy Hook school shooting, among others.

In the case of Sandy Hook, the "end" these "actors" would be achieving is gun control - but as the Pozner-De La Rosa family and others are arguing in multiple lawsuits, they have been defamed and further victimized by Jones' claims.

A gunman killed 20 young children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on December 14, 2012.

In 2013, he called the massacre "staged" and continued to stoke his conspiracy theory for years.

The music streaming service had been under pressure to do something about Jones, who has promoted various conspiracy theories, including the false claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass murder was a hoax and that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an inside job.

When she told her parents and Zach's parents about the abuse, Courtney said they discouraged her from contacting the police. Smith, who also served as the Buckeyes' recruiting coordinator, played for Meyer when the latter coached at Bowling Green.

A number of commenters took to Twitter earlier this week, demanding that Spotify remove Jones' radio show. It's not enough that he's exposed them to death threats and harassment that has led them to move homes seven times.

Facebook last week suspended Jones from its social network for bullying and hate speech, after YouTube removed four of his videos.

In addition to the lawsuit filed in Texas, Jones is attempting to have a defamation suit filed against him in CT by multiple families dismissed.

Jones' lawyer declined to speak after to media the hearing. He is also facing civil action in CT in lawsuits by additional Sandy Hook parents.

Jones, who says he now believes the shootings happened, says such journalism would be chilled if "reporters were subject to liability if they turned out to be wrong".
