Andrew Tate, an influencer and former professional kickboxer known for his misogynistic reflections, has been banned from Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, verified to NPR that Tate had been banned from its platforms for violating its programs regarding dangerous individualities and associations and detest speech. Tate, 35, had garnered4.7 million followers on Instagram before Meta took down his sanctioned account.
TikTok told NPR that the company has permanently banned Tate’s account.
” Misogyny is a spiteful testament that isn’t permitted on TikTok,” a prophet told NPR.” Our disquisition into this content is ongoing, as we continue to remove violative accounts and vids, and pursue measures to strengthen our enforcement, including our discovery models, against this type of content.”
Tate drew internet fame after being removed from the show Big Family in 2016 following a videotape that surfaced in which he allegedly attacked a woman, according to the BBC.
Tate claimed the videotape was” a total taradiddle ” that tried to make him look bad and was edited, the BBC reported.
The influencer was permanently suspended from Twitter in 2017 after twittering that women who are sexually assaulted bear some responsibility, according to NBC News.
