Andrew Tate’s complete controversy with xQc
After an argument with broadcasters xQc, Adin Ross, LosPollosTV, and others on Twitch, Andrew Tate is back in the spotlight. Their argument, which has now gone viral, was, on balance, a muddled jumble.
Tate has earned the moniker of “King of Toxic Masculinity,” due to his chauvinism and takes it very seriously. The professional kickboxer first gained notoriety for his inflammatory tweets during the early days of the #MeToo movement, which led to the suspension of his account by Twitter.
Tate, a British-American kickboxer, has made a name for himself with his penchant for outrageous claims. As reported by The Daily Beast, Romanian authorities conducted a raid on his home a few months ago while investigating him for human trafficking.
Perhaps Tate’s most notable trait is the level of controversy he generates with his online writings. Tate’s defence of Harvey Weinstein throughout the scandal’s public uproar amounted to victim blaming.
The following is an excerpt from a tweet by Tate that has since been deleted, which was included in an article published by The Independent.
“If you put yourself in a position to be raed, you must bare [sic] some responsibility… with seual assault they want to put zero blame on the victim whatsoever.”
Tate has disavowed these beliefs and others like them since then. But after saying he is not sexist in a recent interview with Adin Ross, he proceeded to play up discriminatory tropes about women in the argument.
The kickboxer and xQc got into it initially over xQc’s views on women drivers. Tate asked xQc the following question throughout the course of their discussion:
“So when you see the worst parking you’ve ever seen in your life, you don’t think it’s a female, it’s just as equally likely to be a man in your view?”
Andrew Tate disagreed with Felix’s opinion that a person’s gender has no bearing on their ability behind the wheel because of his or her own experience. As time went on, Tate began to liken his girlfriends to parked cars.
Andrew Tate made a crazily sexist case for why women should not be allowed in nightclubs. When asked about nightlife establishments, Tate compared them to a parking lot. It was no secret that in his eyes, women served no purpose other than as things, like a car would. Here is how he put forward his argument while discussing couples involving females:
“The fact is it is irresponsible for me to put her in a scenario where people will attempt it.”
Andrew Tate shared his strategy for preventing partner theft in a nightclub. On, he elaborated:
“If I walk out to a carpark and someone’s trying to break into my car. Even if the locks to my are secure. I would still decimate the said individual for attempting to steal my property.”
xQc responded appropriately to this. As he put it:
“It doesn’t make sense in the real world. Because you don’t park your f*ing girl on the curb at the club. They move, they talk, they do sh.”
Yet another bizarrely restricted take on why women “naturally prefer older men.” came from Andrew Tate. His argument was that men are inherently more reliable and secure partners.
“If you are a man with a woman, you are likely older, a lot older. So you are wiser by default. You are probably, if you are a successful man, more successful than her. You’ve seen a lot of things, you’ve seen a lot more violence than she has, etc, etc, etc. You are very qualified to have.”
Felix may be one of the most popular streamers, but his words often come out jumbled and confused. Many people have made comments online about how poorly he can respond to questions. The argument lasted for several hours, and Felix did not particularly stand out in any of his participations.
As a team, he and TrainwrecksTV were continually cutting off their opponent. Andrew Tate pretended to be the type of public speaker who effortlessly wins every argument. Since the individual has established himself as a “motivational speaker” who promotes conservative ideology, this would make perfect sense.
It did not look well for Felix when xQc apologised to Tate for pointing out valid concerns with his line of questioning. After Andrew Tate abruptly left the call, xQc made a valid argument regarding the need for greater responsibility when providing a platform to controversial figures like Tate. Following in the footsteps of Fate, he remarked:
“You think that you are sayin, ‘Oh dude, women can’t drive. Haha.’ Chat says haha, but you know for a fact that there is a decent portion of people out there like, ‘Yeah!!! F*** they can’t drive, fing women.”… You are literally empowering people that are dogst.”
