Misogynist Andrew Tate removed from Facebook and Instagram

Facebook and Instagram have banned self-described misogynist Andrew Tate for violating their policies on dangerous organisations and individuals.

While the platforms didn’t point out which of his posts led them to draw that conclusion, many other users feel that the ban was a long time coming.

Tate has made a name for himself by posting content that supports ‘extreme misogyny’. His Facebook and Instagram ban is just the latest social media eviction he has seen.

Back in 2017, Twitter permanently banned Andrew Tate for tweeting that r**e victims bear responsibility for their attacks. He had also tweeted earlier that women belong at home.

Viral short video-sharing platform TikTok had kicked him off its site for harmful content as well. In addition, the company stated that banning him is not enough, and they are also working to remove content that relates to him.

“Misogyny is a hateful ideology that is not tolerated on TikTok. We’ve been removing violative videos and accounts for weeks, and we welcome the news that other platforms are also taking action against this individual,” it said in a statement.

Before his Instagram expulsion, Andrew Tate had 4.7 million followers. His Facebook page also had a large following.

He had had a brief kickboxing career, and he was removed from the Big Brother reality show in 2016 after an old video of him beating a woman surfaced. His online fame began shortly after as he doubled down on the criticism he received after the controversial video. Somehow, the backlash kept attracting people to him.

Andrew Tate’s removal is just one of the many we have seen in recent years and is quite similar to that of former US President Donald Trump, a man that Tate admires.

However, Andrew Tate has tried to separate himself from his online persona, claiming that he was acting out a script as a comedic character. “Internet sensationalism has purported the idea that I’m anti women when nothing could be further from the truth. I am genuinely innocent,” he said in a statement.
