Tate, 35, was taken off both platforms because he was violating Meta's policies on dangerous organizations and individuals, according to Meta. The former professional kickboxer had 4.7 million followers on Instagram prior to the ban, according to the BBC.

Tate discussed the ban on a Twitch stream with popular streamer Adin Ross, saying he doesn't know exactly why he was barred from the platforms, and he trusts "due process."

  From Alex To Lexie: Here's What These Fan-Favorite Grey's Anatomy Stars Have Done Since Their Exit It's always sad when a Grey's Anatomy character leaves the show, but the actor always goes on to do great things.The most recently confirmed departure of sorts will be Ellen Pompeo, who has been a fixture of the show since the beginning. The actress plays Dr. Meredith Grey, a role she has portrayed in every single episode of the show since it made its debut on ABC in March 2005. Pompeo is not intended to leave Grey’s completely and will instead take on a much more reduced role starting the upcoming Season 19. The 52-year-old will also continue acting elsewhere, as she pursues other opportunities.

"I'm not angry at them at any regard," he said. "It's not a big loss for me. It's not something I use too often. But I do understand their position."

Tate first rose to fame on "Big Brother (U.K.)" as a contestant in 2016 when he was removed from the show over a video that appeared to show him attacking a woman. He said the video was edited and "a total lie trying to make me look bad," the BBC reported.

Since then, he's become known around the world for expressing misogynistic views and criticizing women on different platforms. Among his controversial comments, he was suspended from Twitter in 2017 for saying women "bear responsibility" for being sexually assaulted, this as allegations against disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein were pouring in. He has also called women "intrinsically lazy" and he even explained how a man should have "authority" over a woman he's dating.

Those videos have been uploaded from different accounts. Videos with the hashtag #andrewtate have more than 13 billion views on TikTok.

"Our investigation into this content is ongoing, as we continue to remove violative accounts and videos, and pursue measures to strengthen our enforcement, including our detection models, against this type of content."

CBS News also reached out to Google, where Tate has an active YouTube channel with more than 750,000 subscribers, to see if it was planning to take any action, but did not immediately hear back.
