Controversial online figure, Andrew Tate, confirmed he has converted to Islam.
Tate, who is notorious for his radical anti-women beliefs, was banned from social media platforms more than two months ago due to a number of alleged statements he made. Earlier today, he announced on his Gettr account that he is Muslim.
The Muslim community has reacted to this news in a variety of ways, especially considering his prior opinions and remarks toward women.
Muslims across social media are having mixed reactions. Read ahead for what they had to say.
You can have your personal opinion on andrew tate but gatekeeping religion is extremely weird. we don’t know what his intentions are. people far worse than him have reverted, for Allah guides whom he wills. may Allah guide us all.@12nnimxo VIA TWITTER
Hearing news that Andrew Tate has converted to Islam. Everyone knows he didn’t do it for spiritual reasons but because being a Muslim shelters you from criticism by woke liberals and makes you immune to cancel-culture.@mxtaverse via twitteR
If andrew tate changes his ways, good for him, but it doesn’t excuse him of the charges against him. yes converts are forgiven, FOR THEIR SINS. not their crimes, not until the people they’ve hurt have forgiven them. please stop trying to glorify a sex offender misogynist.@HYSTWHOREIC VIA TWITTER
Converting to islam absolves you of your personal sins but it does not absolve you of your crimes towards others which you refuse to take accountability for. i don’t care if andrew tate is muslim. i care whether or not this community cares that he’s an unrepentant sex trafficker.@fatimasflavors via instagram
There’s a certain sinister undertone that Muslim men want to convert the likes of Jordan Peterson and Andrew Tate. To me, it’s the hopes that these men will accept Islam while being able to religiously justify their sexism Muslim men cling so dearly too.@AMIRMW VIA TWITTER
