Andrew Tate's Notoriety

Tate, an ex-contestant on the U.K. reality show 'Big Brother,' gained notoriety for misogynistic remarks and hate speech. His remarks got him banned from all major social media platforms, although his Twitter account became active again in November after Elon Musk acquired the platform. Tate, who holds U.S. and British nationality, has said that women are partially responsible for being raped and belong to men.
