The Internet Kicks Toxic Jerk Andrew Tate Off Funniest Places

This is fine.Image: EA / CmrTV Music / KotakuAndrew Tate, a former kickboxer-turned-misogynistic-internet-guru-for-incels, was recently kicked off every major website you could think of for being a piece of shit.

Now, with a rabid new audience who call themselves “Morbheads,” excited by 24/7 broadcasts of the Marvel film from rogue Twitch streamers, the fandom has reached its logical conclusion: memes.
