‘I am Top G. But Elon Musk is Top E’: Controversial Influencer Andrew Tate Makes Twitter Comeback, Fans Say ‘Thank God for the Unfollow and Mute button’

Andrew Tate Makes Twitter Comeback

Andrew Tate, who has been quite a controversial figure on social media after his misogynistic comments, was banned from Twitter in 2017. The reason for the ban was Tate’s comment about the #MeToo movement, wherein he criticized the r*pe victims amid the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse cases. The internet personality was furthermore criticized for stating depression isn’t real. Tate’s ban was supported by many across the internet for his comments that objectify women, furthermore pushing his male audience in the wrong direction.

However, after the recent ownership of Twitter by Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX has been reinstating a bunch of names back. Unfortunately, one of those happens to be Andrew Tate.

Why was Andrew Tate banned from social media?

While his demeaning comments about women never stopped, the name of Andrew Tate was not as popular as it is now before 2022. Tate identifies himself as a self-help personality who guides his younger male audience. However, his advice to the audience is far from helpful as the 35-year-old man promotes misogyny casually, objectifying women to belong to men and nothing more.

It was in 2017, that Andrew Tate was banned from Twitter for his remarks on the #MeToo movement. “[I]f you put yourself in a position to be r*ped, you must bear [sic] some responsibility,” Tate tweeted.  “I’m not saying it’s OK you got r*ped. No woman should be abused regardless. However with sexual assault they want to put zero blame on the victim whatsoever.”
