Andrew Tate is facing calls regarding a TikTok ban due to fears that his ‘misogynistic’ ideas could influence young teenagers who use the app.

The former kickboxing world champion has gone viral on social media for his views on women and relationships, with some people branding him the ‘king of toxic masculinity’.

Although he does have an army of fans, which is evident by his 4.1million Instagram followers, a number of people are asking for his videos to be removed from the app.

Amelia Handy, a policy lead at Rape Crisis England and Wales, told the Daily Mail: “TikTok has a responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its users: by allowing these videos on their platform they are failing to protect the millions of young people who use their app.”

Despite being relatively unknown at the beginning of the year, it was revealed that in July, he had more Google searches than Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian.
