One of the most recent controversial figures to hit the internet is former kickboxer and social media star Andrew Tate. He is an extremely wealthy man, owns a $30 million home and drives 28 supercars. But he is facing serious charges. And he may be unable to retain his previous influence.
After Tate was booted from the popular video platform TikTok, Facebook and YouTube, Rumble has offered him a platform to make his mark. During his first week on the site, its users spiked by 45.3%, according to Sky News. The company is trying to build a network of live shows. It has also partnered with Donald Trump Jr., who will be hosting a biweekly livestream show on Rumble.
Rumble’s deal with Tate comes after a long list of right-wing celebrities have signed lucrative deals with the company. It is also worth noting that Rumble has a huge market cap, which means that any exits by a popular figure will have a significant impact on the company’s stock price.
