Social media app Parler may never resurface after being exiled from various service providers, including Google and Amazon.

CEO John Matze made the announcement Wednesday and cited the Capitol Hill protests as the reason for the recent wave of conservative censorship.

Legal filings said the Twitter-alternative was home to 12 million users. Matze noed the only path forward, now, is to find other companies to do business with.

“It is a real threat. We’re going to fight and do everything possible to come back as soon as possible and I’d like to think that’s viable next week or that’s viable tomorrow,” Matze said. “So that’s the first step to us recovering — is to get back there. Now the rest of it really is about whether or not we can find alternative places to go who will do business with us again.”

According to Matze, after the Capitol Hill riots, it is appropriate that hateful content does get flagged. However, he said there is also a bias working against his company.
