The 36-year-old had skyrocketed to fame recently after videos of his views and opinions on current and social events started being shared around the internet. Tate is also an ex-martial artist who started his fighting career in 2005 and retired in 2013 after winning his second ISKA world title.

The controversial figure had previously been banned from all social media platforms due to his views, but was reinstated on Twitter after Elon Musk had become the new CEO.
