Andrew Tate fans point out he was released from prison on the same day The Matrix dropped in 1999

Andrew Tate fans point out he was released from prison on the same day The Matrix dropped in 1999

Fans of Andrew Tate believe there is something fishy going on with the date of his release from prison.

Authorities decided last week to let Tate and his brother Tristan out of detention in a Romanian jail and instead put them on house arrest.

They will continue to investigate allegations of them being involved in organised crime and human trafficking while the Tate brothers are shacked up.

The siblings were released on March 31 after spending three months behind bars.


Funnily enough, The Matrix was released all the way back in 1999 on March 31 and supporters think there's a connection.


Andrew Tate talks a lot about the Matrix.

After his arrest in December last year, the controversial former kickboxer wrote on Twitter: "The Matrix sent their agents."

He warned others not to be a victim of the system and to open their eyes to see what the world is really like, according to ITV.

Tate believes 'politicians, the media, and large corporations' are all agents of the Matrix and you can escape it by earning money and achieving success.


However, Lilly Wachowski, who wrote and directed The Matrix, believes her movie should instead be seen from the lens of a transgender perspective.

She told Netflix Film in 2020 when people started joining the dots on this element: "I'm glad that people are talking about The Matrix movies with a trans narrative.

"The Matrix is all about a desire for transformation, but from a closeted point of view. The character of Switch was a man in the real world, and a woman in The Matrix."



Meanwhile, he has also posted a video of himself pacing around his house smoking a cigar while insisting that 'we must defeat Shaytan'.

He hasn't specified what this means for his followers.

According to prosecutors, Tate and his brother are part of an organised crime ring which trafficked at least six women who claim to have been subjected to 'acts of physical violence and mental coercion', as well as being sexually exploited by members of the group.


After Tate was arrested in December, Romania's Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) said they had identified six victims who had been lured with claims of love before being coerced into pornographic acts for the financial gain of the crime group.

Tate denies the allegations made against him, claiming that the Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and that their case is a 'political' conspiracy conjured up to silence him.
