On the latest episode of the “IMPAULSIVE” podcast, released Aug. 9, Logan’s brother, Jake — a social media personality and professional boxer — joined to talk over his latest career moves and how the brothers are taking over their respective rings. During a discussion about social media, the attention turned to controversial figure Andrew Tate.
Jake revealed that Tate had at one point attempted to DM him on Instagram, only to delete the message before Jake was ever able to read it. Upon revealing that Tate had supposedly spoken ill about him, Logan jumped in.
“Jake, I know he’s been talking s*** about you, bro, but with your blessing, can I beat the s*** out of Andrew f***ing Tate?” Logan asked his brother, to which Jake replied, “100 percent.”
Tate is a controversial figure who first came into the public eye on Season 17 of “Big Brother,” which he was reportedly kicked off of after beating a fellow star with a belt. After, he gained notoriety as a kickboxer in Europe. However, it’s his more recent comments and behavior online that has people paying attention at the moment.
“If you don’t know, Andrew Tate is the bald guy, kinda looks like a penis from the neck up,” Logan explained. “His takes are hot, he has a lot of misogynistic, real sexist takes that some people actually see the validity in.”
White Ribbon, a charity focused on ending male violence against women, recently called for TikTok to ban Tate from the platform due to the “extremely misogynistic” content he posts, which has come under fire due to their viral nature. Videos of his opinions — which range from thinking rape victims need to “bear responsibility” for being attacked to only dating women aged 18-19 so he can “make an imprint” on them — have garnered 11.9 billion views in recent weeks, per “The Guardian.”
“Men and boys regularly watching and listening to negative presentations of masculinity may begin to adopt these attitudes and behaviors, believing that they are acting as the ‘ideal man,’” a representative for White Ribbon told MailOnline.
“Andrew, if my brother doesn’t f*** you up, I will, and it has to go down, but I don’t think he gets in the ring with one of us,” Jake said. “I think it’s too big of a risk for him… because he’s ‘alpha male,’ right? That’s his whole, entire thing and when he loses — he will lose to us, either one of us that he fights — he will lose and his whole schtick, and all the women will be like, ‘Yeah!’ and his whole schtick goes out the window.”
Logan responded that his advisors aren’t sure Tate will remain relevant for long enough to warrant setting up a match. Whether or not either of the Pauls will issue a formal challenge has yet to be seen, but Logan’s fans can rest assured that he’ll enter the ring again soon with or without Tate. During an Aug. 3 interview on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Logan revealed he’ll be taking a brief break from WWE to focus on boxing.
