Despite the serious charges he faces in Romania for rape, human trafficking and creating an organised crime group to sexually exploit women, influencer real world andrew tate has a huge following among young men and boys worldwide. His platform, Real World (TRW), teaches members how to make money online, and the site is flooded with content from people in their early teens claiming they’ve already made millions.
Which is the best international course?
On the surface, it appears that TRW is a legitimate business, with a team of expert tutors (called professors) who offer step-by-step courses on how to build and grow an online business. But a deeper dive into the platform, and its cultlike following, uncovers some big skeletons in the closet.
During his 2023 interview with Vice, Johal revealed that he used to post controversial things on online kickboxing forums in the past to stir up attention for his bouts. He even created a mystical backstory for himself, saying that he came from a mystical land called Wudan and was trained by a figure named Master Po. This fanciful story would later be incorporated into his misogynistic training materials, and adopted by his followers.
During the video, he also referenced his controversial tweets about climate activist Greta Thunberg and his car collection. It’s clear that Tate uses his platform to promote himself, but many of the people who follow him are not trying to overthrow the “matrix”. They simply want to know how to make enough money to pay their medical bills or rent.
