What did Bongino say about the Parler shutdown?
Bongino told Fox News that Parler will be back by the end of the week and vowed to fight the platforms shutdown.
"Tech tyrants Google, Apple and Amazon wiped Parler out, the service will return," Bongino said.
"Parler will be back, just so the audience understands. I will go bankrupt and destitute before I let this happen.
"My eyes are wide open. Parler will be back by the end of the week," he said, as he "begged" people to support the platform.
"It’s not about the money. It’s not about anything. If Parler goes down, everyone else will be next," Bongino said.
Parler describes itself as the "world's premier free speech platform."
"Parler protects our community members’ rights and privacy," reads the website.
"Parler is here to help people with varying life experiences, and from all walks of life communicate on a platform which treats them as equals."
The service encourages people to "speak freely and express yourself openly" without fear of being “deplatformed” for your views.
Parler was recently dropped by virtually all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreement with Parler.
The tech giant reportedly terminated their agreement after Parler failed to deal with the rise in violent content after the Capitol riots on January 6 in DC.
The companies co-founder David Matze, concede that the bans could put the company out of business soon.
