Cantor Fitzgerald Acquisition Corp. VI, a special purpose acquisition company, voted Thursday to take Rumble public.

Rumble, a YouTube alternative, hosts channels for those who have been removed off the platform, including Alex Jones and several QAnon figures.

On Monday, the company will go public under the ticker “RUM.”

Shareholders of Cantor Fitzgerald Acquisition Corp. VI, a special purpose acquisition company, voted Thursday to take the video platform Rumble public.

Rumble was formed as a YouTube alternative and provides channels for those who have been banned from the platform, including Infowars presenter Alex Jones and several QAnon influencers. It will go public on Monday under the ticker “RUM.” Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick is leading the blank check startup that plans to go public.

The Rumble vote comes just days after shareholders of a SPAC trying to take Trump Media and Technology Group public failed to accept a transaction deadline extension. Digital World Acquisition Corp. shareholders will vote again on Oct. 10.

“Rumble is laying the groundwork for a new infrastructure that will not be bullied by cancel culture,” Rumble creator Chris Pavlovski stated in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. “We are a movement that does not restrict, censor, or punish freedom of expression or creation.”

According to The Wall Street Journal, the platform has also received private funding from conservative venture investor Peter Thiel as well as author and Senate candidate and “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance.

At market close, shares of Cantor Fitzgerald Acquisition Corp. VI., shortly to be RUM, were down more than 16%.
