Andrew Tate is a former professional kickboxer who has become well-known for his controversial views on various topics. In particular, he has been embroiled in several incidents where he has made disrespectful and misogynistic comments toward women. In one instance, he was banned from Twitter after saying that women should ‘bear responsibility for being sexually assaulted.

It remains to be seen whether he will learn from his mistakes or continue to alienate himself with his offensive views.

Reason for banning Andrew Tate

Due to his alleged violations of Meta’s rules and regulations, Andrew was banned from Facebook and Instagram. No additional information was provided, though.

Tate’s popularity had recently seen a huge boost, as he went on from having close to a million Instagram followers in early June to over 4.6 million in August. He gained around 70k to 100k followers daily in mid-August before being removed.

Andrews released a statement.

In his defense against the ban, Andrew stated his videos have been misconstrued and taken out of their proper context.

He said, “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.” The videos were taken from the internet where they were originally posted.

“Over the past two weeks, I have contributed more than one million dollars to organisations that help women.” I shared it on Instagram, but Instagram did not pay any attention to it.

I have some videos in which I talk about how my mother is my hero and how men ought to look out for their mothers and provide for them. Instagram chose to disregard it. The false notion that I am anti-women has been widely disseminated on the internet, despite the fact that nothing could be further from the truth.

He continued, “On the platform, I was getting over 10,000 death threats every day. Instagram ignored the issue. All of my posts have been bible verses and requests for donations, yet somehow I am the bad guy. Banning me will only fuel more online trolls and racial tension. For the foreseeable future, this will be used as ammunition by opposing viewpoints.
