Andrew Tate has claimed he was banned from social media networks because he conventionally led a ‘masculine life’.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Andrew Tate has been a controversial figure in the past few weeks. This comes after he was banned from social media platforms like Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Facebook.
Still, Tate sat down with Tucker Carlson of Fox News on Thursday, stating that it wasn’t because of the political news.
He ‘banned me simply because I had a large population who agreed with very traditional masculine values.’
Tate went further, adding that ‘teen boys and young people in their 20s, 22s, 23s and 24s looked up to me and aspired to be like me.’
The former kickboxer also said: ‘I lead a very traditionally masculine life. I have a fast car, a big house, a lot of money and a beautiful girlfriend. And they thought it was very, very threatening.
He went on to say, ‘For some reason, they decided that they should remove me from the internet and replace me with someone better suited to whatever they were trying to suggest.’
Tate has been making headlines with her comments over the past few years. He was branded as ‘dangerous’ and ‘misomen’.
In 2017, Tate was no longer on Twitter in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement after stating that women should “take some responsibility” when they were sexually assaulted.
Who is Andrew Tate?
Andrew Tate is said to be of African, American and British descent. He was born to a British mother and his father, Emory Tate, is African American. Emory is a well-known chess master.
Some also claim that Tate was born in Washington, DC, while others claim that his birthplace was in Chicago, Illinois. Nevertheless, he later grew up in Luton, England.
It is also known that after the 2017 incident, Tate moved to Bucharest, Romania.
He talked about the immediate move in an episode of the Fellas Podcast.
Tate said, ‘I don’t feel comfortable (in Western countries such as England). I don’t like how it works and how it works. I think it’s the most corrupt, disgusting, depraved society on the planet. There is nothing left but money and () the corporate agenda.’
In addition, Tate became famous on social media after a video of herself attacking a woman went viral on the Internet. As a result, he was also excluded from the 2016 British hit reality series Big Brother.
