Who Is Andrew Tate
He’s an entrepreneur and former kickboxing champion who currently runs an online course in “modern wealth creation” at his own “Hustler’s University,” and he’s seemingly come out of nowhere to become, at the time of this writing, one of the most viral people on the internet for his cartoonishly misogynistic takes like “women can’t drive,” “men can cheat but women can’t,” or “18-19 year-old women are more attractive than 25 year-olds because they’ve been through less dick.” Known to his fans as the “King of Toxic Masculinity,” Tate has acquired a massive following (and a steady income) as a self-help guru offering advice to young men on how to make money and talk to women.
Under his Instagram profile @cobratate, the multi-millionaire has acquired 3.5 million followers, and TikTok fan accounts that post videos of Tate have racked up countless views. Clips of his appearances on various programs and podcasts that have also racked up views in the millions
Who is Andrew Tate?
According to his website, he was born in the U.S. and holds British and U.S. citizenship, has earned multiple world titles as a professional fighter, and is a commentator for an MMA promotion in Romania called Real Xtreme Fighting.
Tate apparently earned his fortune by running an adult webcam business called “myfreecams” with his brother Tristan. They employed women to have chat sessions with men in which the women would complain of personal tragedies and claim to be in need of money, which the men would then supply via a “tipping” feature on the site. The Daily Mirror interviewed the two brothers in March. Tristan said in the interview the business was a “big scam to sell sob stories to desperate men.”
Tate and his many controversies
Before his rise on Tiktok, Tate’s biggest claim to fame was being kicked off the 17th season of Big Brother in 2016 after the release of a video in which Tate appeared to beat a woman with a belt. Tate has maintained that his actions were consensual and shared a video on Facebook of a woman claiming to be the woman in the video saying that the video was, “a huge misunderstanding.”
Subsequently, many of Tate’s tweets during that time period garnered major backlash, including a tweet thread denying that depression is a mental illness. “Sure. Natural to sometimes FEEL depressed. It doesn’t make it a DISEASE. I feel hungry sometimes, then I change it,” Tate said in the now deleted thread. At the time, Tate’s take on mental health was criticized and mocked. Comedian Patton Oswalt called it an “energy drink tagline.”
Tate also claimed that women bear personal responsibility for being sexually assaulted — a comment made during the midst of the Harvey Weinstein allegations. He wrote: “Sexual harassment is disgusting and inexcusable. However. A man looking at you or whistling at you or asking your name isn’t harassment.”
“This belief does discredit as a whole. Stick to the serious definitions and stop pretending normal male behavior is rape,” the thread continued. “Secondly – harvey. Creep? Obviously. But women have been exchanging sex for opportunity for a very long time. Some did this. Weren’t abused
As of this writing, Tate is currently under investigation by Romanian police for human trafficking, according to The Daily Beast. In a statement made to that publication, Romania’s Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism said the raid on the internet star’s house was part of a probe that began after a woman was reported to have been held at the house against her will. Further, a U.S. State Department spokesperson alluded to a reported abduction of an American citizen but declined to comment further, The Daily Beast reported.
In an episode of the Tate brothers’ podcast, Tristan Tate explains that the reason for the raid was because a girl had told her boyfriend she didn’t want to be at the party but they wouldn’t let her leave.
Tristan Tate: “He then calls the fucking police and says ‘my girlfriend is being held against her will by the Tate brothers.’ The police call the American embassy, and the next day the police come to our house.”
As of April 27, 2022, no one had been charged or arrested but the investigation is ongoing, a Romanian police agency spokesperson told The Daily Beast.
Is Hustler’s University a scam?
To understand how Tate became so viral so fast, look no further than his online course, “Hustler’s University 2.0.”
According to its website, for the cool price of $50, Hustler’s University 2.0 promises “a community where [Tate] and dozens of War Room soldiers will teach YOU exactly how to make money.” According to the website, Hustler’s University has over 127,000 paying members for a total of $6.3 million a month in profit.
