Controversial influencer and self-proclaimed misogynist Andrew Tate has taken a firm stance against Israel's retaliation in Gaza, characterising it as a "genocide" and expressing strong disapproval. During an interview with Piers Morgan on Piers Morgan Uncensored, Tate didn’t hold back on his candid views on the Israel-Hamas conflict, emphasising the gravity of the situation.
In response to Morgan's inquiry about Israel's actions in Gaza, Tate asserted that the issue transcends political affiliations, describing it as "disgusting" and a "genocide". His condemnation of the events suggests a vehement rejection of the military actions taken by Israel in the region.
Tate made it clear that he doesn't need a political compass to recognise what he sees as a moral mess in the Middle East. By avoiding alignment with any specific political spectrum, Tate positions his critique as a ‘moral’ objection to the actions unfolding in Gaza, emphasising the human toll of the conflict.
There’s plenty of actual Palestinians with insight and valuable things to say about what’s going on in Gaza and y’all choose to boost Andrew Tate like how dumb are you https://t.co/OeOgRT2MsT— Comandante Feeney 🎣 (@yungxOsama) November 20, 2023
This isn’t the first time Tate has spoken up about Gaza though.
He and his brother Tristan took a swing at Jordan Peterson, labelling the Canadian psychologist a "hypocrite" for cheerleading destruction while reportedly having a tough time dealing with Twitter haters (the pot calling the kettle out for not handling heat well).

During a livestream on Rumble, the brothers discussed Peterson's call for action, particularly his tweet urging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to "Give 'em hell”, pointing out the irony of someone advocating for war when they're seemingly allergic to online criticism.
Tate has seemingly put his money where his mouth is - literally.
Tate expressed concern for the civilian casualties in the Israel-Hamas conflict, particularly children. Promising to take tangible action, he pledged a donation of $200,000 to aid Palestinian civilians affected by the ongoing hostilities in Gaza.
Both Andrew and his brother Tristan are currently awaiting trial in Romania on allegations of sexual assault, human trafficking and exploitation.
In a world often mired in political jargon, Tate brings a surprisingly refreshing dose of unapologetic candour to the table, though one couldn’t have asked for a worse spokesperson criticising the Israeli retaliation.
