Right-wing activist Laura Loomer said late Wednesday that she has been removed from GoFundMe, weeks after other websites had done the same.

In a post on her website, Loomer said GoFundMe, a popular crowdfunding platform, told her that her account had been removed for violating its terms of service. Loomer said it was not clear what terms of service she had allegedly violated with the account.

“My only crime is breathing and existing. It’s now a crime to be a conservative in America,” she wrote.

GoFundMe did not immediately respond to a request for comment by the Daily Dot, including what terms of service were violated.

The removal from GoFundMe comes weeks after Loomer was permanently suspended from Twitter.

Following the ban, Loomer handcuffed herself to the doors of Twitter’s headquarters in New York and used a megaphone to protest the “silencing of conservatives like myself.”
