A YouTube channel associated with Andrew Tate, an online influencer and self-described misogynist, was disabled Monday, as Google’s video website joins a growing list of social media platforms taking action against the personality in the last week.

The list of apps that previously banned Tate, a British-American former kickboxing champion who has been heavily criticized for his sexist commentary, includes Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter over violations of policies including those around hate speech or ideology. On Monday, after this article’s publication, Tate or an associate removed his channel from Inc.’s video livestreaming site Twitch.
