However, as the Daily Beast’s Will Sommer reports, the so-called “ProudBook” social network has already been shut down less than a week after launching.

According to the error message shown on the ProudBook website, the website’s account was “suspended” by its host, although there is no indication as to the specific reasons why the website was shut down.
Many of Sommers’ Twitter followers were quick to heap scorn on the Proud Boys’ failure — check out some of their reactions below.
Aw, beans. Why'd I even get this ProudBook tattoo?

The social media life of a racist sux. Maybe they should use carrier pigeons for spreading their hatred.
