In a surprising turn of events, controversial influencer Andrew Tate has found himself in a public altercation with YouTube star KSI despite recently expressing respect for him.
Tate, known for his divisive online persona and kickboxing prowess, has had a long history of clashes with KSI. The two have repeatedly exchanged heated words and have even hinted at the possibility of settling their differences in a boxing ring1.
However, on May 20th, Andrew Tate took to Twitter for a Q&A session with his fans. When asked about his feelings towards KSI, Tate responded that he doesn’t harbor any ill will against the YouTuber. “No. I don’t know him,” he admitted. “He does some cringe bullsht but most ‘influencers’ who haven’t found god do. He talks a bunch of sht about me but again, I don’t care. Truthfully, I respect any man who steps into the ring”2.
I don’t know him.

KSI, however, did not reciprocate the sentiment. Responding to Tate’s comment, the YouTube star posted a meme with the caption, “Nah the d**k eating is crazy”3.

The response from KSI prompted a change in Tate’s attitude. When a fan highlighted the disparity between their behaviors, noting how Tate showed respect while KSI continued to act “childish”, Tate replied: “Ok I’ve changed my mind. Yes. He’s proved himself a clown”4.
Adding another layer to the ongoing feud, KSI’s mother, Yinka Olatunji, reportedly posted a tweet earlier this month that seemed to express support for Tate, which left fans shocked and puzzled5.
As the dust settles from this most recent clash, fans and observers of both internet personalities are left to wonder what the future holds for their ongoing feud.
