Andrew Tate talks about his social media ban
Andrew Tate has become a controversial figure in recent weeks. This is after being banned from social media platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook.
Regardless, Tate sat down with Tucker Carlson from Fox News on Thursday and mentioned that he was removed not because of his political news.
He said, “They banned me simply because I had large parts of the population that fit very traditional masculine values.”
Tate added, ‘Teenage men and young men, 20, 22, 23, 24, were looking up to me and aspiring to be like me.’
In addition, the former kickboxer admitted, ‘I live a very traditionally masculine life. I have fast cars and a big house and lots of money and a beautiful girlfriend, and they thought they thought that was very, very threatening.
He continued, ‘For some reason, they decided that they should destroy me from the internet and replace me with someone who is more aligned with everything they are trying to propose.’
Tate has been making headlines in recent years for his opinions. He has been labeled ‘dangerous’ and ‘misogynistic.’
Back in 2017, Tate was banned from Twitter, after stating that women should ‘take some responsibility’ when they are sexually assaulted following the #MeToo movement.
Who is Andrew Tate?
Andrew Tate is reported to be of African, American and English descent. He was born to a British mother while his father Emory Tate is African-American. Emory is a very well known chess master.
Additionally, while some claim that Tate was born in Washington, DC, others have suggested that his birthplace was in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless, he subsequently grew up in Luton, England.
Additionally, after the incident in 2017, Tate reportedly moved to Bucharest, Romania.
He talked about his immediate move during an episode of The Fellas Podcast.
Tate revealed, ‘I don’t feel comfortable (in Western countries like the UK). I don’t like the way it works and operates. I think it is the most corrupt, disgusting and degraded society on Earth. There is nothing but money and (a) corporate agenda.’
In addition, Tate gained fame on social media after a video of him attacking a woman appeared on the internet. Consequently, he was also removed from the hit UK reality series Big Brother in 2016.
