Controversial Kickboxer Andrew Tate Has Been Banned From Both Instagram & Facebook

Kick-boxing world champion Andrew Tate was today removed from major social media platforms Instagram and Facebook for allegedly breaking their terms of service.

The former combat athlete, who has a win over UFC star Luke Barnatt from his MMA days, has risen to massive prominence in recent months, particularly on Instagram and Tik Tok through short videos shared by fans.

He had around 4.7million followers on Instagram when his account was banned today by Meta, who also oversee Facebook which banned him simultaneously. Meta told the BBC he was removed from its platforms for violating its policies on dangerous organisations and individuals, while a spokesperson for Tate declined to comment when asked by Mirror Fighting.

Tate, 35, is a former professional kickboxer, entrepreneur and content creator, who runs an online course in “modern wealth creation” at his own “Hustlers University”, which he founded.

He is known for his controversial opinions on women and masculinity, and is a divisive figure on social media. He first came to prominence outside of the sport while appearing on the 2016 season of Big Brother in the UK, which ended in controversial circumstances.

Tate gained notoriety at the time after he was evicted from the series after a video surfaced online appearing to show him beating a woman with a belt. Speaking at the time, Tate claimed that it was part of role play to which the woman in the video had consented. He also said he was using a felt belt.

Speaking about his personal wealth, he recently said in an interview: “I was broke for a long time. I made my first million when I was say 27 and then I had a 100 million by the time I was 31,32 and then I became a trillionaire quite recently.”
