Andrew Tate has recently defended his comments directed at Amanda Holden, claiming he's a 'feminist' in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.

Tate, 36, is under house arrest in Bucharest over sex trafficking charges but took to the airwaves to address the backlash he received for criticizing the British TV personality and actress, Holden, 52.

The controversy began when Holden shared a racy bikini picture on Twitter, showing her enjoying a poolside shower in a black two-piece. Tate responded with a tweet stating, "You are a wife and a mother, and you're far past a teenager. There is no need for this post,' igniting a social media storm and accusations of 'mom-shaming."

During the TalkTV interview, Tate defended his comments, stating that he was not insulting Holden but was "reminding her of her worth" as a "feminist."

He accused her of "thirst trapping," a term used to describe social media posts intended to attract attention. Tate stated, "I think once a woman reaches the ripe age of 50, she should not be interested in thirst trapping on Instagram."

He also suggested that Holden should focus on her "bigger responsibilities" and utilize her intelligence and fame for more substantial endeavors.

Despite the criticism he faced, Tate maintained his position, asserting that he was advocating for female empowerment. He stated, "As a feminist, we're all feminists here, right? We all believe in women empowerment. I am reminding her of her worth."

However, his claim to be a feminist was met with skepticism by Morgan, who questioned Tate's commitment to the feminist cause.

Holden, who was enjoying a sunny getaway with her husband Chris Hughes, was defended by numerous individuals on social media.

Loose Women star Charles White tweeted, "Attention-seeking by attempting to troll @AmandaHolden?! Someone ought to take up crochet and stop entering grown-up conversations."

Feminist barrister Charlotte Proudman condemned Tate's remarks as sexist and age/body shaming, labeling him "The king of toxic masculinity."

Twitter users also criticized Tate's own online presence, highlighting his shirtless profile picture and content on his social media pages. Despite the controversy, Tate maintains a substantial following on various online platforms.

Tate's current legal issues stem from his arrest in December 2022 on charges of rape, human trafficking, and organized crime. He spent several months in prison before being placed under house arrest, and he was ultimately released in August.

The 36-year-old influencer vehemently denies any wrongdoing and claims that Romanian authorities lack substantial evidence against him and his younger brother, who also faces charges.

While Tate continues to navigate legal challenges, his recent comments on Holden have sparked a larger conversation about feminism, ageism, and body positivity in the digital age, raising questions about the responsibilities and boundaries of influencers in the public eye.
