Dangerous misogynist’ Andrew Tate booted from Instagram and Facebook

In a new piece of news, controversial online influencer and self-described misogynist Andrew Tate has been banned from the meta platforms Instagram and Facebook.

The kickboxer and reality TV star was fired for violating META policies on dangerous organizations and individuals, the company confirmed by email.

He first rose to prominence in 2016 after appearing on the TV show Big Brother, when he was removed from the series after a video of a woman beating outside the show surfaced, receiving backlash for his post on social media.

Tate has been followed in 2017 for a video advising men that she was permanently banned from Twitter after she said on Twitter that women were in the house and rape victims assaulted her.

In a YouTube video, Tate described herself as completely anti-women. There’s no way to be rooted in reality and not be sexist,” Tate said in a statement to the Guardian. Several of his videos were portrayed as parodies, adding that he was playing a comical character.

The internet sensation has reportedly turned the idea anti-women when nothing could be further from the truth. She has donated to charities benefitting women.

Tate was a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump and appeared on several shows such as InfoWars hosted by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

It has been impossible to save Tate on social media and he had over 4.7 million followers on Instagram at the time of his ban from the meta platform.

TikTok has also banned Tet’s official account on its platform and is working on content that violates the guidelines. Videos using Tate-related hashtags have garnered over 12.7 billion views.

A UK support group calls Hope Not Hate Tet a dangerous anti-woman and calls on more social media companies to remove her.

Removal of infringing videos and accounts and we welcome the news that other platforms are also taking action against this person. A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Tate’s account was TikTok.
