Sneako, Another Andrew Tate Wannabe, Also Gets Kicked Off YouTube

Content warning: This article contains references to sexual assault and may be triggering for some readers. 

Andrew Tate’s cultural flame has been snuffed. Since being banned from YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitch, nobody really references him anymore. The people who want to become “Top Gs” are scarce. Tate no longer has the influence that he had just a few short months ago.

Over time, his fans will either flock to one of the million other cringelords doing the same shtick or grow up. His name will become a crusty meme, and the people will move on. 

However, there’s one place Tate’s fans will no longer go. And that’s the YouTube channels of Nico Kenn De Ballinthazy, AKA, Sneako. This is because that dude has also just been banned from the platform. 

That’s right, you can no longer go to Sneako’s YouTube channels to endure such videos as Why Ugly Girls Think They’re Beautiful. Nor can you suffer through How Women Manipulate Men.

“We have reviewed your content and found severe or repeated violations of our Community Guidelines,” YouTube stated in an email to Sneako. “Because of this, we have removed your channel from YouTube.”

This is ultimately a good thing because Sneako did in fact violate YouTube’s policies. Earlier this year, Sneako simulated raping a female content creator that he disagrees with. He did this on camera

Nevertheless, while it’s right that YouTube kicked both Tate and Sneako off its platform, it needs to be quicker at deplatforming its bad faith actors. According to Bloomberg, Tate was only kicked off YouTube after Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter had already pulled the plug on him. 

Moreover, on September 1, a YouTuber named Nick Green called for Sneako to be booted from YouTube. Green even mentioned the fact Sneako pretended to rape a woman in a video. 

As Green explained, “Sneako has grossly violated YouTube’s terms of service and qualifies for removal from the website.”

This means that YouTube took over a month before removing Sneako from its service. A month having his videos pop up in people’s recommended feeds and a month of people subscribing to his content. Thanks to this decision, Sneako had over 30 more days of having an audience. 

Additionally, Sneako still has his Twitch channel. And while he may not have violated this site’s guidelines, he has repeatedly demonstrated he has the capacity to be heinous online. Unfortunately, the saga of Sneako’s content might not be over.
