After partying with Andrew Tate, I party with whatever the f*** I want. G2 Carlos derides public outcry

After partying with Andrew Tate, I party with whatever the f*** I want. G2 Carlos derides public out ...

After posting a video of himself partying alongside controversial figures Andrew and Tristan Tate, the creator and chief executive officer of G2 Esports has faced outcry from the community.

Andrew Tate is a former kickboxer, reality TV star, and online businessman who gained notoriety and infamy in Aug. 2022. His often-favorable opinions about women, relationships, and the COVID-19 epidemic were viewed by millions as his content spread across social media platforms. He was also chastised for his misogynistic worldview during his Hustler University course series, which many creators considered a multi-level marketing scheme.

Tate became a household name as he developed. He was eventually banned from almost every major social media platform his presence was notably felt in. After initially being banned from Facebook and Instagram, the Tate brother was soon banned from YouTube and TikTok, and opted to take down his Twitch channel himself.

Andrew Tate was spotted on G2 founder Carlos Rodriguez's Twitter account, although he was unaware of them. In an eight-second clip, both Andrew and Tristan Tate were seen holding bottles in what appeared to be a club setting.

Carlos' video almost immediately elicited outrage from fans and outside observers alike. Many Twitter users in his replies expressed their disapproval of the esports figure platforming the infamous Tate brother. Others replied with far more devastating allegations against Tate, such as the figures being investigated for human trafficking.

You created a video partying with a well-known misogynist who claims women's property. It's ludicrous at worst, and engagement bait most likely. This is fucking low man, party with who you want, and expect people to judge you for it.

Carlos addressed the outcry that his video generated and defended his affiliation with the Tate brothers. I draw my line here, I party with anyone who wants the fuck.

The former League of Legends pros' decision to redouble down on his supposed friendship with the Tates only further exacerbated the conflict. Notably, Medic insinuated that Carlos likely anticipated the harsh community reaction, vehemently condemning the G2s owner for posting engagement bait.

Carlos' actions and words are still being reviewed and refuted by the immediate LEC community and the wider esports community.
