If you try to access his Instagram profile, the following error message comes up: "Sorry, this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed."

Apart from his reported net worth of $30 million (£25 million), people are both captivated and confused as to how he has become so popular.

Well, his controversial and misogynistic comments have certainly played a helping hand in getting him noticed.

Even TikTok have promised to clamp down on 'hateful' content after being challenged over videos from Andrew Tate.

TikTok told UNILAD in a statement: "Misogyny and other hateful ideologies and behaviours are not tolerated on TikTok, and we are working to review this content and take action against violations of our guidelines.

"We continually look to strengthen our policies and enforcement strategies, including adding more safeguards to our recommendation system, as part of our work to keep TikTok a safe and inclusive space for our community."

An investigation was also carried out by the Observer who opted to set up a fake TikTok account to pose as an 18-year-old in order to see what type of content would come up.

Comedy clips, dog videos and TikToks discussing men's mental health are what popped up first, however, after watching two Tate videos the algorithm suddenly switched.

All of a sudden, Tate clips began popping up on the newsfeed and within a week, eight out of the first 20 videos TikTok was recommending featured Andrew Tate.

Observer claimed that TikTok ended up 'promoting misogynistic content' to young users, despite the platform's contrasting statement.
