At one point this man was the most search individual on the planet. People call him toxic, divisive, manipulative and misogynistic. Everyone out there knows who he is and has an opinion. Love him or hate him, he leaves no one speechless. But how many people actually know more about him that just the reels they have seen on their feed? So today, let’s see Who is Andrew Tate?

I’m constantly speaking and researching about masculinity, and Andrew Tate’s stuff is everywhere. But beyond his reels, I had no clue who he really was. And let’s face it, anyone can be turned into a monster at the drop of a hat. So, I figured it was high time I found out what this guy was all about.

Who is Andrew Tate, aka TOP G?

Emory Andre Tate III is quite the personality. He’s been a British/American businessman, professional kickboxer, and social media figure. Born in Washington, DC, he was raised in Chicago, Illinois, and Goshen, Indiana, by his American International Chess Master father. After his parents’ divorce in 1997, Emory and his brother moved to their mother’s home country, England.

It wasn’t long before he made a name for himself, becoming the #7 best light heavyweight kickboxer in Britain (ISKA) by November 2008. He climbed the ranks, becoming a European division champion in 2009 and a two-time world champion in 2013. Not too shabby with 76 wins out of 85 fights!

Of course, you may also know him from his brief time on Big Brother back in 2016. After only six days, he got booted off the show due to some unsavory comments he made on Twitter. Looking at him though, it’s a bit hard to imagine someone who’s half-white and half-black being accused of being racist.

A Big Brother rep gave a statement to, reading: ‘Big Brother does not condone any kind of racist or homophobic behavior in The House. If offensive comments of that sort are made in The House, Big Brother will deal with them appropriately, in accordance with its long-standing protocols.’

But it seems that the real reason for his removal from the show was a video that surfaced of him beating a woman with a belt. Before you judge him too quickly, let’s not forget that this could have been part of some kinky sex game. Some Twitter users pointed this out, after all. I saw the video and will be the first to say that it doesn’t look good!

What happened then?

After a brief stint on Big Brother, this guy and his brother used his earnings from fighting to kickstart an adult webcam business, raking in over $500k/month. Meanwhile, he’s taking the internet by storm with intriguing views on masculinity, women-men relationships, and society in general. Here are some of his most controversial statements.

“Read the Bible, every single man had multiple wives, not a single woman had multiple husbands. It’s against the will of God — it’s disgusting.”

“It is a circumstance which they must change. Most “depressed” people are unhappy with their lives, too lazy to change it. That simple.”

“I like Eastern Europe as a whole because corruption is far more accessible,” said Tate while adding how he enjoys being able to buy off cops and other law enforcement officials so that they do not infringe on his business operations and personal habits.

He explained that it’s “40 percent of the reason I moved to Romania,” Tate said: “I’m not a f****** rapist, but I like the idea of just being able to do what I want. I like being free.

You can’t be responsible for something that doesn’t listen to you. You can’t be responsible for a dog if it doesn’t obey you, or a child if it doesn’t obey you, or a woman that doesn’t obey you.

Like it or not, Andrew Tate is a smart guy.

The Tate brothers are a force to be reckoned with in the world of entrepreneurship. Tate used his social media popularity to start an educational platform called Hustler University, now known as The Real World. Here, he teaches thousands of students to make money via online platforms at $49 a month per student, generating nearly $10,000,000 monthly.

The brothers are also stakeholders in 15 Romanian casinos, which rake in $1,000,000 monthly. Tate’s private network, The War Room, has over 4,000 members who pay a monthly fee of $4,500, generating a whopping $18,000,000 each month.
Despite being banned from all social media platforms outside of Twitter, Tate’s hashtag #andrewtate has been viewed more than 12.7 billion times! It comes as no surprise that the brothers have made a name for themselves in the world of business and beyond.

So What do I think about all of this?

Do I agree with a lot of things he says? Absolutely. Do I like the way he says it? No, I don’t. But I get it because he’s not speaking to 40-year-old men but to younger men in their late teens and early 20s. And as a social media specialist, the way he does it makes sense.

Do I understand why people hate him? Absolutely. It all goes back to the way he delivers his opinions. Yet I would argue that if people could see past his persona and take his opinion for what it is, they would agree with him.
My biggest issue with the Andrew Tate Phenomena is that he is being silenced everywhere while people like Cardi B and Nicky Minaj are celebrated for empowering women! Really? That’s ok, but a man that comes from nothing and that built a net worth of more than 350 million dollars pledged to donate $100 million to start a charity to protect men from false accusations.

Here is what he had to say about his charity work:

“I will be spending millions and millions of dollars on charitable acts for the rest of my human life. God has blessed me with more money than I could ever possibly need. I thought I was being philanthropic via social media, but if that’s been taken away, I have decided to set up The Tate Foundation and specifically help with financial aid to women, protection from violence primarily. And men’s mental health issues. This will all be detailed in my newsletter.”

“I always felt embarrassed to tell people about the charity I do because I always felt a bit embarrassed. When I do charity, I think it should be from the heart and not for likes. People say I’m a bad person, but I run a shelter for dogs in Romania. I just rebuilt an entire orphanage. I find it hypocritical when these hate mobs say I’m a bad person when I’m the one spending his money and his time trying to help the world. All they’re doing is telling their followers to insult me on my Instagram page.”

As I said before, I believe the issue with Andrew Tate is not his message but how he delivers it.

This is a free speech issue!

I believe in free speech. Free speech is the 1st amendment for a reason, and there cannot be any restrictions for free speech to exist. I want everyone, no matter their opinion, to be able to say whatever they have to say, right or wrong! I want to hear all sides of an argument and make my own opinion.

Now, ask yourself: would you rather the next Hitler preach in the open or let their ideology fester in the shadows? Driving a dangerous agenda underground is far worse than exposing it to light.

Thank you for reading. I am very grateful for every single one of you. Until next time, remember that: the world is changed one man at a time and that one man has the power to change the world.

Do you feel misunderstood, judged, or restricted in expressing your true masculinity? Tired of keeping taboo or delicate subjects to yourself? Do you wish there was a place where manliness is not only embraced but required? Where political correctness and the woke agenda have no power?

I have fantastic news for you: I’ve created an exclusive, private Facebook group just for men like you, eager to reclaim their freedom of expression and grow together, so JOIN US!

Peace out
