Andrew Tate says he's pointing out 'uncomfortable truths' as he defends misogynistic comments
| Last updated
It all kicked off when Andrew Tate appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored this week, with Morgan calling the controversial influencer out on his misogynistic rhetoric.
The issue in question was whether or not Tate saying that 18 and 19 years old are more desirable than 25 year olds was misogynistic (spoiler alert: pretty much everything that comes out of Tate’s mouth is).
Check out a snippet of the discussion below:
Morgan asked Tate: “Do you think that 18, 19-year-old women are more attractive than 25-year-old women?” to which Tate replied: “That’s a loaded question.”
Morgan then said: “It’s not really, is it?” before elaborating: “For the benefit of viewers who don’t know why I’m asking, you [once] said this: ‘The reason 18 and 19-year-olds are more attractive than 25-year-olds is because they’ve been through less d**k.
"‘A 19-year-old is more attractive than a 26-year-old woman because that 26-year-old has talked to more guys, been to the club more times, been f**ked and dumped more times, more arguments, more mess, more for me to clean up.'”
Morgan then told Tate: “That is misogyny, because you are encouraging a mindset about 25-year-old women that makes them sound to be infinitely less desirable than 18 and 19-year-olds.”
Tate fired back: “Firstly, even if that was the case, that wouldn’t be misogyny. That’s not misogyny because it’s not anti-women.
“I’m saying that an 18, 19-year-old will be more desirable. Ageist perhaps, but misogynistic, absolutely not.”
As Morgan continued to press him, Tate then remarked: “My content existed because I tried my very hardest to be an absolut[ist] and not a realist, especially with uncomfortable truths.”
Tate added: “I was pointing out that very uncomfortable [truth]. It’s an uncomfortable truth in many parts of the world [and] it’s not an uncomfortable truth that I’m happy about.”
The clip was shared on TikTok, and many pro-Tate commentators pointed out that Morgan interrupted him numerous times. Peak Tate fanbase, that.
Comments like: “This interviewer is extremely unprofessional!”, “I think Tate handled that very well considering the amount of interruptions he had” and “Piers Morgan has no chance against Tate” quickly racked up in the comment section.
It's a shame there wasn't a third person on hand to talk over the both of them.
