Andrew Tate – social media influencer, former reality TV star

Date:

Controversial social media influencer and former reality TV star Andrew Tate was banned from the Meta platforms Facebook and Instagram on Friday.

Tate, 35, was suspended for violations of Meta’s policies towards dangerous organizations and individuals, the BBC said. Before being banned, Tate had over 4.7 million followers on his Instagram account, @cobratate.

The former kickboxing champion discussed the ban with popular Twitch streamer Adin Ross.

“I understand their position very well,” says Tate said. “It’s not a big loss for me. It’s not something I use too often.”

“I’m a little relieved because the real world is such a beautiful place. The less stuff on my phone and it’s just one less thing I have to look at. I just get in my supercar and go for a ride.”

Tate told the Twitch streamer that he doesn’t know why he was banned from the Meta platforms. But went on to say that he has “good people in the business” and that he trusts “a fair trial”.

Tate’s first rise to the limelight came when he appeared as a contestant on the UK version of “Big Brother” in 2016.

He was kicked out of the show after a video was released in which he allegedly assaulted a woman. Tate’s stance on the video is that it has been edited and is “a total lie to make me look bad,” as reported by the BBC.

In 2017, at the height of Harvey Weinstein’s accusations, Tate was suspended by Twitter for saying women should “be responsible” for sexual abuse.

Tate’s popularity grew due to bizarre comments about women’s intelligence, saying they are “intrinsically lazy” and strongly in favor of men having “authority” over a woman when in a relationship.

Tate has a Youtube channel called “TateSpeech”.

CBS News reported that an account associated with Tate has been permanently banned from TikTok, as the company ramps up its efforts to remove videos of Tate’s hateful ideologies. His videos are uploaded by various accounts not directly related to Tate, with the #andrewtate having over 13 billion views on TikTok.

“Our investigation into this content is ongoing as we continue to remove infringing accounts and videos and take steps to strengthen our enforcement, including our detection models, against this type of content,” a spokesperson told CBS News.
