Former kickboxer Andrew Tate lives a lavish life with a gorgeous gal on his arm and a fast car parked in the garage of his big, beautiful home — and that, he contends, is why big tech de-platformed him: Because they were threatened by his “large swaths” of fans who eagerly supported his “very traditional masculine values.”

“They banned me simply because I had large swaths of the population agreeing to very traditional masculine values,” he told the host of Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today. “… I have a very traditionally masculine life. I have fast cars and a big house and a lot of money and a beautiful girlfriend, and they thought this was very, very threatening.”
“And for some reason,” Tate continued, “they decided that it’s better if they annihilate me from the internet and replace me with somebody who’s more aligned with whatever they’re trying to purport.”
The 35-year-old British American internet influencer was, in the course of a week, banned from Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok “after concerns about his influence on his millions of followers escalated,” according to The New York Times.
Once a professional kickboxer, Tate made headlines when he was removed six years ago from the British version of the reality show “Big Brother” after video emerged of him reportedly hitting a woman with a belt — an act Tate claims was consensual.
But in the years since, Tate’s frequently shocking comments — comments that would have made Andrew “Dice” Clay seem tame back in the day — have landed him in hot water by a society that no longer finds chauvinistic remarks funny.
To be fair, in a July appearance on the Barstool Sports podcast “BFFs,” Tate did say that women “belong” to men.
“I’m not saying they’re property,” he quipped. “I am saying they are given to the man and belong to the man.”

Those comments — and many like them, Tate argues — have been taken out of context.
“What happens is when I say these things, they ignore 95% of what I say,” Tate told Carlson. “They ignore me saying that you need to avoid low-quality men. And they take the bit where I say avoid women who are dishonest. And then they put it on a reel — a very short three- or four-second clip, and then they say I’m a misogynistic person and I’m dangerous to women and I need to be banned.”
Being a man in today’s world is “very, very difficult,” Tate said, and young men are feeling “very disaffected.”
Online, he contends, men are all but invisible unless they bring the bling.
“If you go on to an Instagram feed, you have extremely beautiful women… But the only men who have followers are men with massive social status, right?” he stated. “Men with Ferraris and money or rappers or people who have YouTube channels — interesting people.”
The nice guys with normal jobs “don’t really exist” online and are treated as though they “don’t really matter.”
“It’s very difficult for you to even get any kind of recognition that you’re even alive,” he said, adding that a lot of men feel lonely and lost, prompting him to “champion” their “issues.”
“And I was championing, to a degree, their issues by saying to them, ‘Look, that is unfair, perhaps, but that’s the way the game works. You need to become a man of importance. You need to become a man of influence, or you’re going to suffer the pain of being invisible forever. Here is how you do it,'” he explained.
It is his alpha-male influence as a “completely and utterly self-made” man over these “depressed” and lonely guys, Tate says, that is at the heart of his expulsion from the internet.
Claims Tate, “They want to get rid of me and try and replace me with something they see as far more malleable — trying to create people [who] are more malleable and more easy to program and [easier] to control.”
