Andrew Tate banned from Facebook and Instagram
According to a business email, the former kickboxer and reality TV personality was fired for violating Meta regulations "against harmful organisations and individuals."
Tate originally gained notoriety when participating in the reality television series Big Brother in 2016, where he was fired after a video of him assaulting a woman outside the set leaked.
On social media, Tate has established himself as "hard to ignore," and at the time of his suspension from Meta platforms, he had more than 4.7 million Instagram followers.
Tate's official account on TikTok has also been suspended, and the company is attempting to delete any content about him that is against the rules.
The self-described sexist was removed for violating Meta’s policies on ‘dangerous organizations and individuals’
In 2017, he said on Twitter that rape victims "have responsibility" for their attack and that women belong in the house. As a result, Twitter permanently banned him.
Tate has grown a following for his advice videos to men, many of them veering into sexist territory.
