Threatening misogynist Andrew Tate was banned from Facebook and Instagram.
The former kickboxer and reality TV star was removed for violating Meta policies
Tate originally gained notoriety when participating in the
television series Big Brother in 2016, where he was fired after a video of him assaulting a woman outside the set leaked.
In a statement to the Guardian, Tate characterized many of his videos as parody, stating he was “playing a comedic character”.
TikTok has also banned Tate’s official account on their platform and is working to remove content related to him that violates guidelines.
TikTok spokesperson said. “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.”
