Andrew Tate Career
In 2005, Tate started practicing boxing and martial arts on the side. In 2009, while employed in selling television advertising, he won the International Sport Karate Association (ISKA) Full Contact Cruiserweight championship in Derby, England, and was ranked number one in his division in Europe. Though he had won 17 of his 19 fights, he said it was his first belt and title.
Tate won his first ISKA world title in a rematch against Jean-Luc Benoit via knockout, having previously lost to Benoit by decision.
In 2013, Tate won his second ISKA world title in a 12-round match, making him world champion in two different weight divisions. The fight was held in Châteaurenard, France.
In 2016, while a guest on the seventeenth season of Big Brother, Tate came under scrutiny for his homophobic and racist comments on Twitter.
After the release of a video in which Tate appeared to beat a woman with a belt, Tate was removed from the show after only six days of participation.
Tate stated that he was “great friends” with the woman featured in the video and said that the actions were consensual.
Tate’s personal website offers training courses on getting rich and “male–female interactions”. According to the website, he operates a webcam studio using girlfriends as employees.
Tate and his brother started a webcam business in Romania, using webcam girls to sell sob stories to desperate men, claiming to have made millions of dollars doing so. They admit that their business model is a “total scam”.
Tate operates Hustler’s University, a website where members pay a monthly membership fee in order to receive instruction on topics such as dropshipping and cryptocurrency trading.
Until August 2022, members got a substantial commission for recruiting other people to the website through an affiliate marketing scheme.
Some critics claimed that the affiliate marketing scheme effectively functioned as a pyramid scheme.
Tate became highly prominent during 2022 by encouraging members of Hustler’s University to post large numbers of videos of him to social media platforms in an effort to maximize engagement.
Social media presence
Tate received attention for his tweets delineating his view of what qualifies as sexual harassment amid the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse cases and for tweeting several statements about his view that sexual assault victims share responsibility for their assaults.
In 2017, Tate said that depression is not a real illness, receiving significant backlash.
Three of Tate’s Twitter accounts were suspended at different times. In 2021, an account he created to evade his previous ban was verified by Twitter contrary to their policies.
The account appeared to have been part of a promotion with Bugatti. The account was subsequently permanently suspended, and Twitter said that the verification occurred in error.
Online, Tate initially became known among far-right circles through appearances on InfoWars and acquaintances with far-right figures such as Paul Joseph Watson, Jack Posobiec, and Mike Cernovich.
Throughout 2022, Tate is considered to have become a cult-like figure on social media to many young directionless men across several English-speaking countries, catering to anti-feminist views in particular.
The White Ribbon Campaign, a nonprofit advocating against male-on-female violence, considers Tate’s commentary “extremely misogynistic” and its possible long-term effects on his young male audience “concerning”.
Hope not Hate, an advocacy group campaigning against racism and fascism, has commented that Tate’s social media presence might present a “dangerous slip road into the far-right” for his audience.
In response to criticism leveled at his misogynistic rhetoric, Tate stated that his content includes “many videos praising women” and mainly aims at teaching his audience to avoid “toxic and low value people as a whole”. He further stated that he plays an “online character”.
In August 2022, Tate was banned from Facebook and Instagram for violating their policies on hate speech and dangerous organisations and individuals.
TikTok, where videos featuring his name as a hashtag have been viewed 13 billion times, initially removed an account associated with him, saying they would investigate the matter further, before removing his primary account as well after determining that it violated their policies.
Shortly thereafter, YouTube followed suit, marking Twitch as the only major social media platform left to host Tate’s content.
In a now-deleted video posted to his YouTube channel, Tate stated that he decided to move to Romania because it was easier to be absolved of rape charges in Eastern Europe.
In April 2022, Tate’s house was raided by the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism of Romania (DIICOT) in relation to a human trafficking and rape investigation.
The U.S. embassy had previously alerted Romanian police that an American woman might be held at the property.
The raid resulted in the recovery of an American woman and a Romanian woman.
As of April 2022, Romanian authorities said that the investigation was ongoing. A U.S. A State Department spokesperson referred to the reported abduction but declined to comment further, citing privacy considerations. Tate denies any wrongdoing.
