The controversial influencer Andrew Tate, who was banned from Twitter for sharing his opinion that women should “bear responsibility” for being sexually assaulted, has now been banned from Instagram and Facebook by Meta. Tate’s tweets from five years ago suggested that women should “bear responsibility” for being assaulted sexually. According to BBC, the kickboxer first shot to prominence in 2016, after he was booted from the reality TV series Big Brother due to a video that appears to reveal him assaulting a female participant in the show.
Why Was Tate Kicked Out of Meta?
Although the 35-year-old actor asserted that it was “a blatant lie trying to make [him] appear awful” at the time of his expulsion from the show, he hasn’t done anything in recent years to redeem himself of the unpleasant charges that have been made against him. Tate was kicked out of Meta “for violating its regulations on harmful organizations and persons,” though the company did not release any additional information. This comes after the previously noted suspension from Twitter for his nasty and damaging comments.
He Poses A Serious Threat, BBC Correspondent Says
BBC correspondent Marianna Spring cited Joe Mulhall, the director of research at Hope Not Hate, in her analysis of the American-British personality’s removal from multiple social media sites.

Spring’s analysis can be found on the BBC website. “[He] poses a serious threat to young men, radicalizing them towards extremism, misogyny, racism, and homophobia,” added Mulhall. “He poses a problem because young guys are more susceptible to his influence.” “We have supplied extensive evidence to the major social media networks, including Meta, regarding his activity and the reasons why he must be removed from those platforms,”

TikTok To Take Example
Hope Not Hate is relieved to learn that Meta has taken prompt steps to get rid of Tate. We will exert pressure on TikTok to behave in the same manner as this example. According to the director of research for this organization, “they must act immediately to prevent the continued propagation of these radical ideologies.”
Misogyny is a vile worldview that is not accepted on TikTok, according to a spokesperson for the company who talked to the BBC. We have spent the past few weeks eliminating infringing videos and accounts, and we are pleased to hear that other platforms are also taking action against this particular user.
