Andrew Tate has broken his silence on being banned from TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook

As reported by Yahoo News, the controversial influencer’s representative has said that the move highlights a ‘running contradiction in today’s society’.

They reportedly said: “There is a running contradiction in today’s society where men are encouraged to speak and be open/honest with how they feel but are generally met with a negative response to their truth.

“Banning Andrew Tate from these platforms might seem the answer, but it isn’t that simple.”

They reportedly also noted: “Removing Tate’s voice doesn’t allow for a kinder hate-free society.”

Acknowledging his ban, a TikTok spokesperson told The Independent: “Misogyny is a hateful ideology that is not tolerated on TikTok.

“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.”

Over recent weeks, Tate has gone viral on social media with his stream of opinions.

Metro reports that the influencer once tweeted about the #MeToo movement, commenting: “S**ual harassment is disgusting and inexcusable.

“However, a man looking at you or whistling at you or asking your name isn’t harassment.”

Allegedly, the 35-year-old added: “Women have been exchanging s** for opportunity for a very long time. Some did this. Weren’t abused.

“If you put yourself in a position to be r**ed, you must bare some responsibility.”

On another occasion, Tate has publically insisted that ‘women can’t drive’, and said 18 years olds are ‘more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’ve been through less d***’.
