We all know by now that Andrew Tate isn’t a particularly ‘nice’ person. So much so that, recently, top social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube have decided to ban him from using their services, and TikTok has even gone as far as to remove any video of his that promotes sexist and misogynistic views—so most of them, really.
Thanks to major websites bringing the ban hammer down on Tate and his questionable content, the move has given netizens so much meme ammo that they don’t know what to do with all of it. Thankfully, some clever souls have started ‘banning’ Tate from all kinds of places online, namely video games, and each meme is funnier than the last.
With Nintendo’s latest addition to the Splatoon franchise just weeks from its release, Twitter user @wifflewaffle_ has created a masterful meme banning Tate from the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere. This shouldn’t be too much of a blow to the self-proclaimed ‘Top G’ considering the fact that he gives off strong ‘video games are for babies’ energy.
Instead of catching ‘mons, Pokémon GO has told Tate to catch these hands because they’re rated E for everyone. I guess he’ll never fulfil his dream of being a Pokémon master. Sorry, not sorry.
The Sims is such an iconic life simulation game that it needs no introduction. Though Tate’s ‘banning’ from The Sims 3 feels like something that could actually happen in the game, what makes this a top-tier meme is that The Sims 3 Store, which Tate has been creatively ‘banned’ from, has actually been shut down by Electronic Arts for years. The offensive character would never make it on there anyway—that would require some original ideas and his controversial ravings all sound like Simlish to me.
Taking the meme in a different direction—and possibly the funniest one yet—Tate has been ‘hired’ by the American video game holding company due to his misogynistic comments and recent allegations. Arguably, he would be right at home at Activision Blizzard, as its toxic work culture has prompted many women across multiple studios to come forward with sexual assault accusations.
Oh dear, of all the places the man could be banned from, this one will probably hurt the most. Time for you to sashay away, queen.
This is it. This is the one that takes the cake. Not only has he been banned from The Sims but now iBeer too? Tate, you’ve officially hit rock bottom. Why don’t you go get an actual pint to help you chill out?
