After being removed from Instagram and Facebook due to his “toxic” attitudes on women, KICKBOXER Andrew Tate has now been banned from TikTok.
Tate’s account was being deleted, according to a statement from the social media behemoth, since it had broken its rules.
It was claimed that the posts made by the former Big Brother participant were against TikTok policy, which prohibits postings that “attack, threaten, instigate violence against, or otherwise demean an individual or a group.”
Tate’s official profiles from Facebook and Instagram were also deleted, according to Meta, for comparable reasons.
After expressing his unsettling opinions about women in online videos, Tate, 35, has come under fire recently.
When his Instagram account was blocked, he had more than 4.6 million followers on the platform.
Tate, a Luton native, now resides in Romania.
Domestic violence groups have criticised him for his strong misogyny, and there are worries that he will radicalise men and boys who will copy him offline.
Tate acknowledged he was “definitely a misogynist” in an earlier conversation with a different YouTuber.
Additionally, he said in a since-deleted YouTube video that one of the reasons he came to Romania was because he thought police in Eastern Europe would be less likely to investigate rape claims.
Tate, however, has claimed that his films were “taken out of context” and that he was “playing a humorous persona.”
Tate was expelled from Big Brother in 2016 when a video of him belting a woman surfaced.
He was also criticised by mental health organisations in 2017 for asserting that depression “isn’t real.”
It happens shortly after YouTuber Daz Black criticised “monster” Tate in a clip of the kickboxer’s sexist outbursts.
Daz, who has more than seven million followers on the platform, claimed that recently, several women approached him and levelled grave allegations against Tate.
He said he received “disturbing” videos of Tate – and described the kickboxer as “monster”.
Hope Not Hate, a Brit NGO recently launched a petition to have Tate deplatformed.
“The effect that Tate’s brand of vitriolic misogyny can have on the young male audience is deeply concerning,” it said in a statement.
“His content is widely celebrated by his fans for having brought back ‘traditional masculinity.’ However, we also know that misogyny can be a gateway to other extreme and discriminatory views.”
