BUCHAREST, ROMANIA: Piers Morgan is facing criticism for a recent interview with Andrew Tate, the self-proclaimed misogynist influencer known for his controversial and provocative views.
The TV presenter sat down with the Tate brothers (Tristan and Andrew) last week for an interview which aired on Monday 20 November. Tate was arrested in December 2022 on allegations of rape, human trafficking and organized crime.

The decision to give a platform to Tate and his brother Tristan, who also participated in the interview, sparked serious anger on social media platforms like Instagram and X (formerly Twitter).
Dr Charlotte Proudman, lawyer and gender equality campaigner, wrote on Twitter: “Just learned that Piers Morgan is apparently on a flight home from Romania after interviewing Andrew Tate, a self-proclaimed misogynist. Who the hell would give a platform to a man awaiting trial for rape and sex trafficking? It doesn’t matter what he has to say. Let’s listen to the voices of survivors.
