InfoWars host Alex Jones, no stranger to an anti-transgender rant, appears to enjoy watching trans pornography.

The conspiracy theorist and radio host — who made headlines after being banned from social media and YouTube for his hateful rhetoric — was filming a video peddling “personal wellness” products when viewers spotted something on his phone.

Jones was trying to show how to access the products online when he viewed all of the open tabs on the phone. Among them, a tab titled “Naughty tbabe Marissa Mi…” stood out.

“Tbabe” often refers to trans adult film stars. Based on the title, the video is believed to feature transgender porn actress Marissa Minx. On social media, Minx describes herself as “Australia’s #1 Trans Companion/XXXAdult Model.”

Minx tweeted that it was “fantastic he is watching scenes,” and retweeted other Twitter users who blasted Jones for being “hypocritical,” and for having “blatantly anti-trans views.”

Jones, who can count Donald Trump among his fans, has a long history of anti-LGBTQ comments and conspiracy theories.

He has long claimed that the government is creating gay people through “chemical warfare,” and in 2015 stated the existence of a “gay bomb.” His obsession mainly focuses on frogs — in 2017, he claimed that “the majority of frogs” in the U.S. are “now gay” after being exposed to the government’s chemicals.

He used anti-transgender slurs to insinuate that First Lady Michelle Obama is male, including calling Obama a “tranny,” and calling President Barack Obama gay.

In 2011, he claimed gay people were “recruiting 7-year-olds” to teach them “sexual acts that can kill you,” and in 2015 said that same-sex marriage would “pave the way for pedophile rights.”

And earlier this year he threatened to “destroy” drag performers, saying, “We’re going to destroy you. You will ascend to Hell in the reverse order.”

Jones has yet to comment on the incident, and it remains unconfirmed if it was his phone that was being used in the video.
