‘Dangerous misogynist’ Andrew Tate booted from Instagram and Facebook
Self-described sexist was removed for violating META's policies on 'dangerous organizations and individuals'.
Controversial online influencer and self-described misogynist Andrew Tate has been banned from meta platforms Instagram and Facebook.
The former kickboxer and reality TV star was fired for violating META policies "on dangerous organizations and individuals," the company confirmed by email.
Tate first rose to prominence in 2016 after appearing on the TV show Big Brother, when he was dropped from the series after a video surfaced of a woman beating up outside the show.
Tate has been followed for her advice videos for men, many of them veering into sexist territory.
On a YouTube video, Tate described herself as "absolutely an anti-woman".
He said: "I'm a realist and when you're a realist you're sexist. There is no way to be rooted in reality and not be sexist. ,
TikTok has also banned Tet's official account on its platform and is working to remove related content that violates the guidelines.
The video using the hashtag associated with Tate has been viewed more than 12.7 billion times.
UK advocacy group Hope Not Hate called Tate a "dangerous anti-woman" and called on more social media companies to remove her.
Tate has recently become "impossible to save" on social media, and she had over 4.7 million followers on Instagram at the time of her ban from the meta platform.
