r/uncensorednews was a subreddit that gained popularity after the mods of r/news were accused of censorship over thread locks about the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. Consequently, the subreddit gained thousands of subscribers in the ensuing hours.

Despite the subreddit name, users were banned for not conforming to right-leaning extremism and gradually the subreddit turned into an altright neo-nazi forum.

After 2 years, the subreddit was banned by the admins due to "violation of our content policy, specifically, the prohibition of content that encourages or incites violence."[2]
