Andrew Tate makes controversial claim with ‘truth about English people’
| Last updated
The controversial and divisive Andrew Tate has seemingly made another interesting remark about the 'truth' behind British people. Watch below:
The 35-year-old former Big Brother star, who presents himself as a wealthy and insightful entrepreneur, has taken social media by storm and seems to be on all of our newsfeeds at the moment.
As far as we're aware, Tate is a British-American former professional cruiserweight kick-boxer vlogger, sports commentator and businessman.
Apart from his reported net worth of $30 million (£25 million), people are both captivated and confused as to how he has become so popular.
Although he now lives in Romania, Tate used to live in Luton and has a very mixed accent because he's lived all over the place.
If one thing for sure - he certainly doesn't think very highly of British people from his time here.
As shown in the clip above, Tate says: "English people are the most violent people in the world.
"They conquered the entire Earth.
"People thinks 'oh yeah everyone's in suits, little gentlemen'."
He continued: "London's like stabbing capital of the world.
"It's a very violent place and English people will fight you over nothing.
"They're not friendly or polite, they're very violent, extremely when they drink."
As expected, another very controversial claim and people in the comments were quick to make their voices heard.
One person commented: "As an English man I can confirm that whilst what is said is true we do know how to form a line unlike the rest of the world and some of us are polite."
Another added: "I mean I don’t want Tate in this country anyway so."
"I'm British and I love being polite and kind to anyone tbh but the only time I've seen people who are violent was on the tv and that's it tbh..," a third person commented.
Someone else, quite rightly, pointed out: "He’s right but depends how you were raised tbh."
Many in the comments also claimed they were 'proud to be British' whilst some said that it 'depends on the area'.
Well, according to data published by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) for England and Wales, London isn't the knife capital of the world, let along in England.
Recent stats suggest that In 2021, the police force area with the highest level of knife crime was Cleveland in Yorkshire, with a total of 72 offences for every 100,000 people.
London had 45 offences per 100,000 people in 2020, and 51 per 100,000 in 2021.
