The controversial influencer appeared on Big Brother in 2016, though he was removed from the show due to a video showing an alleged assault on a woman.

He claimed the video was edited to make him look bad.

Tate found online fame, but much of his content was labeled "misogynistic" and "toxic."

Meta removed the kickboxer breaching the policies on "dangerous organizations and individuals."

If you try to go on Andrew's Instagram, you will get a message: "Sorry, this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed."

Tate's following grew rapidly in June, and before he was removed from Instagram, he had 4.7 million followers.

Additionally, his business account, Cobra Tate, which promised people to get fit, connected, and rich, has also been removed.

Twitter removed Tate first after he stated women should "bear responsibility" for being sexually assaulted.

Australian schools claimed recently that Tate's online comments caused students to show signs of "toxic" sexism.

Multiple private schools in Melbourne reported incidents of sexism and online bullying.

"This sort of male toxic influencer s**t is fuelling it … this term for sure."

Chief executive of mental health charity the Man Cave, Hunter Johnson, said that Tate's videos were alarming, explaining:

"They call his references 'Tate-isms'. They're literally using it as a social currency for banter, but also, disrespect."

He added:

"Often it is young men who feel like they've been ripped off, that they were entitled to attention, were entitled to, you know, particularly female attention, and they didn't get it."

The focus has been primarily on his TikTok, which is investigating his sexist content.
