The Daily Stormer, a website devoted to White supremacy and neo-Nazism, has been kicked off the GoDaddy domain after the website ran a hateful and demeaning story about the woman killed at the recent Charlottesville, Virginia, rally.

GoDaddy stated it no longer wants The Daily Stormer after the story on Heather Heyer. She was murdered when a neo-Nazi follower rammed his Dodge Charger into a crowd of counter-protesters gathered to oppose a “Unite the Right” rally of white supremacists and neo-Nazi devotees.

“We have informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service. If no action is taken after 24 hours, we will cancel the service,” GoDaddy spokesman Dan Race told CNN in a statement.

The Arizona-based GoDaddy bills itself as the “world’s largest domain name registrar” and “hosts more than 10 million websites around the world.”

GoDaddy continues their denunciation of the Daily Stormer: “Given their latest article comes on the immediate heels of a violent act, we believe this type of article could incite additional violence, which violates our terms of service.”

The article in question posted on the Daily Stormer called Heyer “fat and a drain on society.”

“Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness,” the story said. “A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value.”

The driver of the Charger, James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio is the subject of a Justice Department investigation for alleged hate crimes. This is in addition to facing local charges for second degree murder and other felony crimes for killing Heyer and injuring 19 others.

Southern Poverty Law Center, the nation’s leading institute tracking hate and racism, said, “tThe Daily Stormer is dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism, primarily through guttural hyperbole and epithet-laden stories about topics like alleged Jewish world control and black-on-white crime.”

Among its readers were Charleston, South Carolina, church mass killer Dylann Roof and the murderer of Jo Cox, a British legislator.

Andrew Anglin, the creator of the site, praised President Donald Trump for not specifically blaming neo-Nazis and White supremacists following the Charlottesville rally, saying “he loves us.”

Trump tweeted on Saturday, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.”

This ambiguous, hollow statement delighted the White supremacist leader: “He didn’t attack us. He just said the nation should come together. Nothing specific against us. He said that we need to study why people are so angry , and implied that there was hate on … both sides!” Anglin wrote. “There was virtually no counter signaling of us at all. He loves us all.”
