Andrew Tate opens up about his social media ban
Andrew Tate has become a controversial figure in recent weeks. This comes after he was banned from social media platforms like Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Facebook.
Regardless, Tate sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday and mentioned that he wasn’t removed for his political news.
He said: ‘I was banned simply because I had large sections of the population who accepted very traditional masculine values.’
Tate further added: “Teenagers and young people of 20, 22, 23, 24 years looked up to me and aspired to be like me.”
Furthermore, the former kickboxer admitted: ‘I live a very traditionally male life. I have fast cars, a big house, a lot of money, and a beautiful girlfriend, and they thought this was very, very threatening.
He continued, “For whatever reason, they decided they should wipe me off the internet and replace me with someone who is more aligned with whatever it is they’re trying to propose.”
Tate has been making headlines for the past several years for his views. He has been labeled as ‘dangerous’ and ‘misogynistic’.
In 2017, Tate was no longer allowed to use Twitter, after he declared that women must “take some responsibility” when they are sexually assaulted in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
