- Toxic influencer’ Andrew Tate has been banned from Facebook and Instagram for his ‘misogynistic’ videos
- Meta said Tate, 35 had violated its policies
- Tate had 4.7 million followers on Instagram
Andrew Tate has been banned from Meta owned platforms Facebook and Instagram.
The former kickboxer rose to fame in 2016 when he was removed from TV show Big Brother over a video which appeared to depict him attacking a woman.
He gained popularity after Twitter banned him from the platform for saying women should “bear responsibility” for being sexually assaulted.
Tate has made a fortune through his toxic social media content which promotes ‘extreme misogyny’.
Andrew Tate’s videos on TikTok have been viewed over 13 billion times.
After the ban Andrew told LAD BIBLE that prior to the ban, he had been receiving about 10 000 death threats everyday, claimed the site ‘ignored’ his attempts at supporting women through charitable donations, and has instead focused on ‘false narratives’.
I was receiving over 10,000 death threats a day on the platform. Instagram ignored it.”
It is very unfortunate that old videos of me, where I was playing a comedic character, have been taken out of context and amplified to the point where people believe absolutely false narratives about me.
In the last two weeks, I dedicated over 1 million dollars to charities supporting women. I posted this on Instagram, but Instagram ignored it,” he said, referring to a social media post which showed ‘what a loving nice man’ he is by donating ‘significant funds’ to domestic abuse charities.
Internet sensationalism has purported the idea that I’m anti-women when nothing could be further from the truth. This is simply hate mobs who are uninterested in the facts of the matter and trying to personally attack me. They twist facts and produce fancy documents full of half-truths and lies to attack people they don’t like.”
Banning me only inspires more internet hate mobs and more division. This will become a weapon of attack for different points of view for the foreseeable future.”
Andrew Tate believes META is so wrong for this as he is ‘innocent’ and he will still continue with his charity projects.
