Andrew Tate

American-British Internet personality, former kickboxer (born 1986)

Emery Andrew Tate III (born December 1, 1986) is an American and British social media personality, businessman and a former professional kickboxer. Following his kickboxing career, he began offering paid courses and memberships through his website and later rose to fame as an Internet celebrity. His misogynistic commentary has resulted in his suspension from several social media platforms.

On December 29, 2022, Tate and his brother, Tristan, were arrested in Romania along with two other suspects, and charged with human trafficking and forming an organized crime group. Romanian police allege that victims were coerced into creating paid pornography for social media through false displays of affection, called the "loverboy" method. On December 30, 2022, a judge ordered him remanded in custody for 30 days.


  • [On how he would respond to a woman if she accused him of adultery.] It’s bang out the machete, boom in her face and grip her by the neck. Shut up bitch
  • [On his move to Romania, avoiding rape charges being "probably 40% of the reason"] I’m not a rapist, but I like the idea of just being able to do what I want. I like being free
  • [Tate's comment from one of his videos.] I inflict, I expect, absolute loyalty from my woman [...] I ain't having my chicks talking to other dudes, liking other dudes. My chicks don’t go to the club without me, they are at home.
  • absolutely a misogynist (YouTube video)
  • I’m a realist and when you’re a realist you’re sexist. There’s no way you can be rooted in reality and not be sexist. (same YouTube video)
  • playing a comedic character (statement to The Guardian)
  • Internet sensationalism has purported the idea that im [sic] anti women when nothing could be further from the truth. (statement to The Guardian)
  • Romania is a beautiful place. There’s no feminists, there’s no open homosexuality. [...] No homosexual agenda. No feminists. It's corrupt, which suits me because I’m fucking rich. [...] No immigrants or refugees which is great because it means no one gets stabbed.
  • I love Trump, he’s the best we could ever have hoped for.
  • [On his assertion women are men's property.] I’m not saying they’re property [...] I am saying they are given to the man and belong to the man.
  • [In a video for Hustler's University, considered a scam by the media, on how to gain further recruits via online comments.] What you ideally want is a mix of 60-70 per cent fans and 30-40 per cent haters [...] You want arguments, you want war.
  • Hello @GretaThunberg I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo. My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s. This is just the start. Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions.

About TateEdit

  • [W]hat he is doing today online fits every international definition of radicalisation. It takes a situation where there is a power imbalance and suggests that the one with the power is actually the minority. It is how all radicalisation works. These young people have been groomed.
    It starts with a viral YouTube video of a takedown of a feminist argument. It starts with a picture of a woman with a black eye. It is a drip, drip, drip, which eventually leads to real-world consequences.
  • Andrew Tate is probably the most famous internet celebrity in the world right now.
    In recent weeks he has been Googled more often than the President of America, more often than Donald Trump and more often than most major pop stars. As of this week, the #AndrewTate hashtag has over 12.7 billion views on TikTok.
  • It is no secret that the internet is awash with ugly and harmful content. However, it is rare when someone like Andrew Tate rises to become one of the most famous people on social media because of their harmful content.
    While many are already speaking out against Tate, there is a legion of (primarily male) supporters who consume, venerate and share his dangerous content.
    Here in the UK, it is not an exaggeration to say that many young students returning to school at the end of the summer holidays will have seen something produced by Andrew Tate. The effect that Tate’s brand of vitriolic misogyny can have on the young male audience is deeply concerning. His content is widely celebrated by his fans for having brought back "traditional masculinity".
    However, we also know that misogyny can be a gateway to other extreme and discriminatory views, and there is a serious danger that some people, sucked in by his sexist content, will align with his wider far-right politics.
  • And then there is Andrew Tate. How does a man like this become a "trillionaire" guru to teenage boys? You may think he is ludicrous: a globular kickboxing star and former Big Brother contestant. But his reach is staggering: over 11 billion views on TikTok. And what is he pouring into young minds? Streams of grim misogyny: tales of hitting women, choking them, smashing their faces in if they cheat, while maintaining that any cheating on his part is just "exercise".
    It is as if someone has taken every type of woman-hater you can think of — a footballer, an incel, an Arab sheikh, the Tinder Swindler — and rolled them into one menacing, manscaped action doll, given them loads of guns, money and cars and made them say worse things than Donald Trump. He is a God to many boys.
  • We had a good chat, Tate and I, but the guy gives me the horrors. Not all the time, but enough of the time, I simply hate what he thinks. If I had a son, I'd hate the thought of him being exposed to it, and I’m far from wild about my daughters having to deal with teenage boys who have soaked it in. I even agonised about whether I ought to do this interview. Although if the most googled man on the planet can't be written about in a newspaper, then I’m honestly not sure what any of us are here for.
