Why Andrew Tate banned from Instagram and Facebook

Andrew Tate has been removed from Facebook and Instagram for violating Meta’s policies

In accordance with Facebook’s policy on “dangerous individuals,” Tate could be considered to fall under the Tier 3 category

A spokesperson for Meta confirmed that he was banned from using Facebook and Instagram but did not clarify if the ban was permanent or offer details on what specific policies he had breached

The 35-year-old’s presence online was described as “dangerous” in a viral Instagram post last week by queer content creator Matt Bernstein

At the time of his removal from Instagram,  the British American had 4.7 million followers

Social media users responded to Tate’s rising popularity by trolling him with a yassify makeover as a comment on his misogyny

Ruth Davison, CEO of Refuge, a British charity that provides support for women and children experiencing domestic violence, called the ban on Tate’s account “the right decision” in a statement
