Misogynist ‘influencer’ Andrew Tate has stopped posting on Facebook and Instagram
Controversial ‘influencer’ Andrew Tate has been banned from social media platforms Facebook and Instagram – covering more than half of all internet users worldwide – for breaking the platforms’ policies and crossing the line into being a ‘dangerous individual “.
Subsequently, Tate’s accounts on both platforms were deleted.
Facebook and Instagram’s parent company Meta said in a statement to The Guardian that the controversial influencer and self-proclaimed misogynist had violated policies “about dangerous organizations and individuals.”
He will no longer be able to create new accounts.
The former kickboxer and star of the reality show – Big Brother US 2016 – has already been banned from other social media platforms such as Twitter and even TikTok.
His troublesome behavior came to light when Tate was on Big Brother. A video of him beating a woman surfaced, prompting his dismissal from the show.
After that, his behavior of “extreme misogyny” drew widespread condemnation.
After claiming that a woman’s place is in the home and that rape victims bear “responsibility”, he was permanently banned from Twitter.
TikTok has also banned him and is working to remove his videos. The platform struggles to remove copycat and fan accounts.
In his other social media appearances, Tate has sought to defend himself, saying he’s not anti-women and blaming “internet sensationalism” for spouting the idea.
Although on other occasions he has argued that “I’m a realist and when you’re realist, you’re sexist. There’s no way to be grounded in reality and not be sexist.
