Andrew Tate says he is being punished for ‘telling young men to work hard’ but would be ’embraced’ if he told them to remove their genitals and ‘wear a dress’

  • Tate is under house arrest on suspicion of human trafficking and rape

Andrew Tate today said he is being punished for ‘telling young men to work hard’ and would be ’embraced’ if he told them to remove their genitals and ‘wear a dress’.

Tate, 36, who has been described as the ‘king of toxic masculinity’, complained that he has been banned from social media sites and was put in jail ‘to rot’ because he has told young men to ‘question everything, work hard and go to the gym’.

Tate claimed that if he ‘cut off his d*** and wore a dress and told men to do the same’ he would not be seen as ‘poisonous to the minds of the youth’. Instead, he claims, he would be ‘promoted and embraced’.

The influencer has been accused of spreading misogynistic ‘rape culture’ content to audiences as young as 13 on TikTok, with Tate speaking about attacking a woman if she accused him of cheating. 

Tate is currently under house arrest in Romania over allegations he recruited young women and forced them to create online pornographic content. Last week, a judge extended his house arrest for another 30 days.

Tate claims he is being targeted because those in power are ‘afraid of me being so influential’. ‘They don’t want me to help men be good,’ Tate tweeted.

He continued: ‘The logical extension is that my enemies are simply evil. It is good vs evil. It is God against Satan. It is the battle for humanity.’

Tate said he had been banned from being discussed in schools around the world, having a bank account, using Airbnb, Uber, or Spotify, and was put in jail because he had told young men ‘to question everything, work hard, go to the gym, and get as rich as possible’.

He claimed the British government has an ‘active campaign’ to not only ban him, adding that UK officials are planning to incriminate him for hate speech.

The influencer’s rise to fame in recent years has been linked to the proliferation of British teenagers using the Chinese video sharing platform TikTok. 

Tate, who has told rape victims to ‘bear responsibility’ for the abuse, said in one video that he would attack a woman if she accused him of cheating. 

When asked if a woman accused him of cheating and came at him with a machete, Tate said: ‘It’s bang out the machete, boom in her face and grip her by the neck. Shut up b****.’

Leading domestic abuse charities have warned such content is extremely misogynistic and has the potential to radicalise men and young boys to bring harm to women. 

Tate was arrested on December 29 in Bucharest along with his brother Tristan and two Romanian women on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group to exploit victims.

The notorious misogynist spent three months in prison before being put under house arrest last month after winning an appeal against a judge’s decision to extend his time in jail for a fourth time.

Prosecutors have said the Tate brothers recruited their victims by seducing them and falsely claiming to want a relationship or marriage.

The victims were then taken to properties on the outskirts of the capital, Bucharest, and coerced to produce pornographic content for social media sites that generated large financial gain, prosecutors say.

Tate and Tristan moved into a converted warehouse in Romania in 2017, which they staffed with armed guards.

At their safehouse on the outskirts of Bucharest, the Tate brothers had a video chat studio where several women were found during a police raid in April 2022.

Romanian anti-organized crime agency DIICOT said in a statement after the December arrests that it had identified six victims in the human trafficking case who were allegedly subjected to ‘acts of physical violence and mental coercion’ and sexually exploited by members of the alleged crime group.

The agency said victims were lured with pretenses of love and later intimidated, placed under surveillance and subjected to other control tactics while being coerced into engaging in pornographic acts for the financial gain of the crime group.

In January, Romanian authorities descended on a compound near Bucharest linked with the Tate brothers and towed away a fleet of luxury cars that included a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari and a Porsche. They reported seizing assets worth an estimated $3.9 million. 

Prosecutors have said that if they can prove the cars’ owners gained money through illicit activities such as human trafficking, the assets would be used to cover the expenses of the investigation and to compensate victims. Tate also unsuccessfully appealed the asset seizure. 

Tate is also accused of raping a Moldovan woman, who he alleges followed him from London, in March 2022, which he categorically denies. 

In January, he told the Bucharest Court of Appeal that the alleged victim moved to Romania with him voluntarily in November 2021.

Tate claimed she filed a rape allegation nearly six months later when he refused to give her money to buy a house and become a TikTok star. 

And last week, it emerged that Tate is reportedly facing the possibility of being sued by three British women who claimed he sexually abused them.

The legal team who are putting the allegations together, which it will make clear once they have the money to bring civil action against Tate in the High Court.

The women, now aged in their late 20s and early 30s, reportedly claim that Tate, 36, sexually abused them between 2013 and 2016, as the self-described misogynist ran an online sex firm from Luton, Bedfordshire.

An investigation by British police forces into complaints made by two women at the time resulted in no charges being brought against Tate, who repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

The British women looking to bring the claim against Tate say that they have suffered personal injury and psychiatric harm after alleged violent sexual and physical assaults in the UK.

They are being represented by law firm McCue Jury & Partners. 

Tate’s views on women, masculinity and entrepreneurship, voiced in podcasts and shared online, became popular in 2022 as they were shared in short clips around social media.

He was ultimately banned from various platforms for misogyny and hate speech.   

Tate has repeatedly claimed Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and alleged their case is a ‘political’ conspiracy designed to silence him.
