Controversial online celebrity Andrew Tate strongly refuted accusations of misogyny and other major crimes in a heated interview with the BBC.

Tate rejected specific allegations of rape, human trafficking, and exploitation of women that are currently the subject of an investigation by Romanian authorities.

He asserted that he was a “force for good” and that he was carrying out God’s command to take constructive action.

Since being placed under house arrest in April after being detained by Romanian police, this interview was Tate’s first appearance on a major television outlet.

He dismissed the testimony of the women who were a part of the probe during the interview and called a lady who had previously given an anonymous interview to the BBC “imaginary,” claiming that the BBC had created her.

“By speaking to you, I’m doing you a favor as legacy media and giving you relevance. And I’m telling you right now about Sophie, who was created by the BBC and has no face. She is unknown to anyone. I know.”

According to the woman, she accompanied Tate to Romania because she thought he had feelings for her. She said that she was forced to work on webcams and get Tate’s name tattooed on her body.

Sophie is at the moment supporting the investigation of Romanian prosecutors.

Tate also downplayed worries about the impact of his ideas that were expressed by educators, top police officers, and rights activists. Tate called these allegations “absolute garbage” and denied being behind the rise in girl assaults or the harassment of female teachers.

Tate additionally declined to take responsibility for his remarks made on the Hustler’s University website, where he said that his goal was to “meet a girl, go on a few dates, sleep with her, get her to fall in love with me to the point where she’d do anything I said, and then get her on a webcam so we could become rich together.” The page has been deleted.

He said. “I’ve never said that.”

The Tate brothers are currently under judicial supervision, and as the inquiry nears its conclusion, an indictment is anticipated in the upcoming weeks.
