Andrew Tate’s Twitter account has been used to protest the influencer’s innocence after being arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.
of Tate The account, which is followed by more than four million people, tweeted on Saturday: “God is with us, so the matrix will not win.”
It comes after the controversial “self-help” social media influencer, who calls himself “the king of toxic masculinity.” Arrested in Romania. Along with his brother Tristan on suspicion of human trafficking, rape and organized crime.
Two other suspects, who are from Romania, were also in custody.
On Friday, Romania’s anti-organized crime agency confirmed the four would be detained for 30 days after a judge extended their initial detention period to allow them to be investigated.
Despite Tate’s detention, his Twitter account has remained active, including sharing several tweets regarding “The Matrix.”
The 1999 science fiction film sees humans fighting against agents inside a virtual reality used to trap people and harness their energy.
At the end of the first film, the protagonist is given a choice between a red pill, which will awaken him from The Matrix, and a blue pill, which will leave him in blissful ignorance of its existence.
In recent years, the film has been adopted by conspiracy theorists and self-proclaimed “self-help” influencers, such as Tate, to encourage their followers to try to break free from society’s constraints—the so-called “red Bullet” option.
The concept of the red pill has also been adopted by online communities, such as followers of the “involuntary celibacy” (uncel) group, who believe that men are being “coerced” by feminism.
But Tate’s reference to The Matrix was mocked by Twitter owner Elon Musk, who shared his own tweet referencing the film.
Sharing a photo and a quote with the face of “Neo,” the film’s protagonist, Musk tweeted: “What if I told you the only way to escape the Matrix is to learn everything you can. have been taught and rebuild their entire belief system. based on critical thinking and analysis.”
Along with a reference to The Matrix, Tate, a former kickboxer and contestant on UK reality show Big Brother, ended his recent tweet with the phrase “Inshallah” – an Arabic word meaning “if God willing.”
Tate, who was born in the US to an African-American father and an English mother, but spent most of his young life in Luton, said last year that he had converted to Islam.
Along with his own tweet, two hashtags are now being used by Tate’s supporters on Twitter to protest his innocence, one being “Tateisinnocent” and the other being “FreeTopG”.
Tate has previously shared videos claiming she was about to be arrested in an attempt by authorities to “silence” her.
In one video, shared under the hashtags, a teenage boy protested Tate’s innocence and said he had taken an Islamic oath in solidarity with the controversial influencer.
Tate, who brags on social media about his expensive lifestyle and is often accused of promiscuity because of his views on women, has a strong fan base among young teenage boys, giving him influence. Fear arises about influence.
Tate was Ban on Facebook and Instagram in August for violating parent company Metta’s “dangerous persons” policies. He had 4.7 million Instagram followers before his official account was deleted.
He was banned from YouTube a few days later for violating hate speech rules – but fan channels have filled the void, posting videos that have racked up millions of views.
TikTok has banned him from having an account, but content posted under the hashtag Andrew Tate has been viewed billions of times.
In November, an analysis by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) identified more than 100 TikTok accounts that frequently promote Tate’s content, with a total of 250 million video views and 5.7 million followers.
Twitter also banned him in 2017 for misrepresentations and hate speech, but reinstated his account late last year after Musk took office.
