Andrew Tate says he is a ‘fantastic role model’ after social media ban

Andrew Tate has said he’s a “fantastic role model” and not “anti-woman” after videos of the former Big Brother star’s misogynistic comments banned him from Instagram and Facebook.

The 35-year-old has been banned from the meta platforms for violating their policies.

In a statement, he has hit back at the ban, saying he’s just playing a “comedic character”.

“It is very unfortunate that old videos of me playing a comedic character have been taken out of context and amplified in such a way that people believe absolutely false narratives about me,” he began.

“In the last two weeks I have donated over $1 million to charities supporting women. I posted this on Instagram but Instagram ignored it.

“Internet sensationalism has spread the idea that I’m misogynistic, when nothing could be further from the truth. They’re just hate mobs who don’t care about the facts of the matter and are trying to attack me personally.”

“They twist facts and produce outlandish documents full of half-truths and lies to attack people they don’t like,” he continued.

“I will always have millions of fans around the world and my platform would be a beacon teaching people of all genders and races how to respect one another for years to come. Now these fans have no important lessons to learn about love. Why?”

“With my Instagram page, I’ve started proving all negative narratives wrong and showing tolerance to the world,” he said.

Tate went on to claim that his fans would “follow in my footsteps of tolerance and love and make the world a better place.”

“I have even instructed all my supporters to be respectful in discourse towards those who dislike me. My fans would respectfully and logically respond to death threats. Hatred doesn’t fix anything. Love does,” he added.

“I received over 10,000 death threats a day on the platform. Instagram ignored it. I’m kind of the bad guy if all my contributions have been bible verses and charitable donations. Banning me only inspires more internet hate mobs and more division. This will become an offensive weapon for different points of view for the foreseeable future.”

His long and ranting statement went on to ask Instagram to allow him to “return to teach today’s youth.”

“I have nothing but positive attitude to spread towards all PEOPLE, male OR female, and this is reflected in all of my recent messages and posts.”

“I am a mixed race man who was raised by a single mother. I suffered from all the disadvantages of the old world. I am an amazing role model for all people, both men and women,” he concluded.

Meta told the BBC they had removed him from their platforms for “violating their policies on dangerous organizations and individuals,” but gave no further details.

Tate’s videos have garnered over 11.6 billion views online.

He had previously been banned from Twitter after saying that women who have been raped “must have some responsibility”.

In a video, the US-born, London-raised man advised men accused of cheating on their girlfriends to “hit with a machete, punch her in the face and grab her by the neck. Shut up bitch.”

In another video, he said women should “shut up, have kids, sit at home, be quiet and make coffee.”

In his most viral videos, he voices opinions such as “women can’t drive,” that men can cheat but women can’t, and that 18-year-old women are “more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’re less d**k gone through.”

In 2016, Tate appeared on Big Brother UK but was removed from the program after a video surfaced online that appeared to show him hitting a woman with a belt.

In a statement, Tate said the actions in the video were consensual.

Earlier this year he was investigated by police in Romania for human trafficking and rape.

Two women were rescued during a raid on his home by Romanian authorities.
