Meta has banned controversial online influencer Andrew Tate from Facebook and Instagram for violating its policies.

The 35-year-old former kickboxer has an audience in the millions on social media and is notorious for his opinions on women.

Meta, which owns Instagram and Facebook, said the company removed Tate’s official accounts from the social media platforms for violating the company’s policies “on dangerous organizations and individuals.”

Comments have been sought by ABC from Meta.

Tate quickly rose to prominence on social media in the past few months, accused of spreading misogynistic messages, with TikTok coming under fire for promoting its content to minors.

Last month, he generated more Google searches than Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian combined.

In videos posted online, Tate, who poses with cars or guns and portrays himself as a cigar-smoking playboy, talks about beating women and preventing them from going out.

Videos with hashtags related to Andrew Tate have been viewed more than 12.7 billion times.

At the time of his ban from Meta platforms, Tate had more than 4.7 million followers on Instagram.

He first rose to prominence after appearing on UK TV show Big Brother in 2016, when he was forced to leave the series after a video of him whipping a woman with a belt emerged.

Tate continued to gain notoriety online in 2017 after saying that women should “bear some responsibility” for being sexually assaulted, after which Twitter permanently banned him from the platform.

In his latest response to the Meta startup, Tate said in a statement to a British newspaper that his Instagram account was banned because old videos “where I played a comic character” were “taken out of context”.

“I have nothing but positivity to spread towards all people, whether male or female, and this has been reflected in all of my recent messages and posts,” Tate said in the statement.

He claimed that Instagram ignored his charities supporting women and his videos explaining that his mother was his hero.

Tate was born in Chicago, USA and raised in Luton, England, and now lives in Romania.
