Andrew Tate has defended himself for ‘mum-shaming’ Amanda Holden after she posted a racy picture of herself in a bikini by insisting he’s a ‘feminist’.
The disgraced influencer, 36, who is currently under house arrest in Bucharest over sex trafficking charges, appeared in the first of two ‘explosive’ interviews with Piers Morgan on his TalkTV show earlier today.
The Heart FM presenter, 52, had tweeted a racy image of herself enjoying a poolside shower in a black two-piece, which ignited a vile response from the former Big Brother contestant, dubbed ‘the king of toxic masculinity’.
Replying to Amanda’s tweet featuring her snap, Tate wrote: ‘You are a wife and a mother and you’re far past a teenager. There is no need for this post.’
During the TalkTV interview Tate accused the Britain’s Got Talent judge for ‘thirst trapping’, a slang term used to reference a social media post that is supposedly intended to attract attention.
He said: ‘You can call me crazy, you can call me misogynistic, but I think once a woman reaches the rip age of 50 any woman should not be interested in thirst trapping on instagram.’
He then went on to compliment Mrs Holden, saying: ‘I think she has bigger responsibilities. I’m sure she is a very intelligent lady, she has done amazing things.
‘She is famous, she’s obviously very capable and I think she can do things more interesting than standing around trying to thirst trap on instagram like she’s 18.’
