Andrew Tate’s sexist and offensive comments are taking a toll on his image and angering women.

At the start of September, Andrew Tate, the controversial influencer, was banned from almost every social platform like TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram due to violating their policies. The thing is that, even if he’s now banned, his ideology keeps on spreading and even teachers and parents are worried about the non-reversible consequences that Andrew created.  

If that name doesn’t ring a bell to you, then it means that (luckily) you avoided the big wave of misogyny on mainstream social media this last year.


So, who is Andrew Tate?

Emory Andrew Tate III was born on December 14, 1986, in Washington, D.C. but raised in Luton, England. He is a professional kickboxer who started a website offering paid courses and membership. He gained notoriety when he appeared on a U.K. reality show called Big Brother. In 2016., a video of him assaulting a woman with a belt appeared, and he was removed from the production. He afterward defended himself by saying that the accident was consensual. 

His life then took a turn when the self-help personality started to be more of an influencer and started to spread misogyny. His message was to help men “escape the matrix women created.” He claimed that women had some responsibility for being sexually assaulted.

Now it’s such a serious topic to discuss because of the impact he has on the teenage boys that see him as a role model. The boys are obsessed with the so-called influencer and are starting to absorb his messages and put them into practice.

“They’re starting to believe being successful is synonymous with abusing women genuinely,” said a teacher from an all-boys Secondary School in New Zealand. The latter tweeted a message about how Andrew Tate poisoned their life at school.

He feeds off of the insecurity of men and teenagers. He then profits from it by doing podcasts and interviews around money and power. He discusses topics such as rape, abuse, and even grooming which, because of his target audience, does get attention.

“The reason that 18 and 19-year-olds are more attractive than 25-year-olds is that they’ve been through less d**k,” said the 35 years old. This is an example of the many inspiring speeches that Tate gave to the world. Where would our society go if everyone started to follow the ideology that women are there to serve men?
