Controversial Influencer Andrew Tate Banned From Facebook & Instagram

Five years after being banned from Twitter for sharing his opinion that women should “bear responsibility” for being sexually assaulted, controversial influencer Andrew Tate has been banned from Instagram and Facebook by Meta. As BBC notes, the kickboxer first rose to fame in 2016, after he was removed from the reality TV series Big Brother over a video that seemingly depicts him attacking a woman.

At the time of his ejection from the show, the 35-year-old claimed it was “a total lie trying to make [him] look bad,” though he hasn’t done much to redeem himself of the negative allegations in recent years.

Of course, there was the aforementioned Twitter ban over his hurtful and damaging comments, and now, Meta has given Tate the boot “for violating its policies on dangerous organizations and individuals,” though they didn’t provide any further details.

In her analysis of the American-British personality’s removal from several social media platforms, BBC correspondent Marianna Spring quoted Hope Not Hate director of research, Joe Mulhall, who isn’t a fan of Tate, to put it lightly.
