"Gab has responded to F-droid's decision by branding them as cowards and announcing plans to fork F-droid's repository. "
I should not have to support the kkk (ie this fork) all because a minority of left wing extremists in the community who contradict the very free software principles they claim to hold dear are upset.

F-Droid has issued a statement saying that it won’t distribute any app that promotes the "free speech" platform Gab because it "tolerates" controversial opinions.

So it looks like people on Gab are able to follow this account. It is interesting to note that while it appears Gab is not blocked on this server there may be censorship of some kind still.

Humorously there aren't many people actually using Gab, but this is interesting.
