There is yet more bad news for influencer Andrew Tate as his ‘Hustler’s University’ has been shut down.
The affiliate marketing program has contributed significantly to Tate’s viral success over recent months, encouraging enrolled members to recruit new ones and share videos of him in exchange for payment.
According to The Guardian, an Observer investigation revealed how followers were ‘explicitly encouraged to create arguments and war’ by posting provocative clips designed to attract high engagement and views, thus generating more ‘Hustler’s University’ signups.

The publication went on to say that the closure of the scheme marks a major loss of Tate’s income, with ‘university’ membership dropping from 127,000 to 109,000 in the last two weeks.
However, a post in the Hustler’s Community forum told subscribers not to be ‘concerned’ about the shutdown while reassuring an ‘exciting’ update is coming soon.
“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.”

Videos of Tate remain widespread on TikTok, though most of the clips are now shared by fan pages. Videos, where he is tagged, are estimated to have been viewed 12billion times.
According to The Independent, the social media platform said it is ‘using technology to remove duplicated clips of Tate’s content from the platform altogether’ and is ‘reviewing new content as it is shared’.
Andrew Tate’s hashtag is still visible, along with hundreds of videos.
Earlier in August, White Ribbon, a charity which works to end male violence against women, asked TikTok to remove Tate from their platform because his views may have a ‘concerning’ effect on his young audience.
