Controversial influencer Andrew Tate has been banned from TikTok after repeatedly ‘violating’ the platform’s rules.

This comes after Facebook and Instagram banned the former kickboxing world champion for misogyny last week after a rapid ascent to sustained prominence in recent months.

Confirming 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.”

Videos of Tate remain widespread on TikTok, though most of the clips are now shared by fan pages.

According to the outlet, 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.

In response, Tate said: “As a success coach I talk about avoiding low-value people.

“I often teach men to avoid friends who take drugs or only watch TV.

“I teach them to find good male friends and role models, and also say to avoid toxic people as a whole.

“This means I also say to avoid toxic women, as well as toxic men.

“Everybody ignored everything I say about avoiding bad men and only says I dislike women for saying avoid bad women.

“It has nothing to do for hate for women. It’s simply about good and bad people. My mother is my hero.

“I play an online character and am brash and bravado but my views are pure and simply say to find the highest value men and women you can with good hearts.”
