Andrew Tate

Andrew Tate is a content creator who rose to fame as a kickboxer and Celebrity Big Brother contestant. He made his money operating a pornographic webcam business, later setting up his Hustler University – a subscription service that claims to help its “students” become rich. Tate uses his Hustler University to manipulate social media by getting his supporters to publish his videos. 

Tate is an extreme misogynist. He goes far beyond calling for traditional gender roles and believes women are actually the property of men. He has actively aligned himself with the organised misogyny subculture known as the Manosphere.

He has a long history of expressing far-right views and is a close associate of numerous far-right extremists including Tommy Robinson.

In June 2023 Tate and his brother Tristan were charged in Romania for rape and human trafficking.

Why are HOPE not Hate concerned about Tate?

Tate’s misogynist, homophobic and racist content is seen online by millions of young people. His confidence, his money and his lifestyle are all carefully crafted to make his brand of hateful content seem aspirational.

Tate’s violent misogyny is harmful and he goes far beyond ‘women belong in the kitchen’ jokes. The shocking disparity in how teenage girls and boys feel about him suggests that Tate’s targeting of young men has had a direct negative impact on young women as his ideas are carried by young men both on and off-line.


“It doesn’t matter whether a woman wants to be a lawyer, a house makers or a webcam girl, unless she has a man directing her she’s going to f*** it up. They’re just not built to be completely independent creatures. […] There is no such thing as an independent female, they’re all relying on a man to some degree.”

“I will state right now that I am absolutely sexist, I am absolutely a misogynist and I have f*** you money so I’ll say what I want. […] There is no way you can be rooted in reality and not be sexist.”

In one video, Tate describes how he would deal with a woman who accused him of cheating: “It’s bang out the machete, boom in her face and grip her by the neck. Shut up b****.”

Is Andrew Tate far right?

Consuming Tate’s content often opens young men up to more extreme content. Tate has a close association with the far-right extremist Stephen Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) and has a long history of close association with a variety of far-right figures in the UK and America.

Tate is able to bring followers in with his misogynistic content and then introduce them to his far-right friends and his dangerous conspiracy theories, such as the Great Replacement Theory and the New World Order.

The campaign to remove Andrew Tate from social media

In August 2023, HOPE not hate led the campaign to de-platform Andrew Tate from social media. We started by writing to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube with a briefing detailing exactly why Andrew Tate’s content should not be hosted on their platforms. Then, we harnessed the power of our supporters and asked them to join our campaign and write to the tech platforms – thousands of people signed it in a matter of hours. 

Within days, tech platforms had removed Tate’s accounts. However, there’s still more to be done. Since Twitter was bought by Elon Musk, Tate is active on their platform once again. Third parties are still posting Tate’s videos and he’s regularly hosted on other social media influencers’ channels.    

What should parents and teachers do if they’re worried about Tate’s influence?

HOPE not hate’s research shows the enormous influence dangerous figures like Tate can have on young people.

But schools are poorly equipped to tackle far-right extremism in the classroom. The language and nature of the problem shifts quickly and without proper training and guidance teachers can’t keep up.

At HOPE not hate, we are working to fill that gap. We work with teachers, pupils and parents to help them recognise and tackle the signs of hate through education workshops and training.
