Cristiano Ronaldo and Andrew Tate are both very familiar names to people. However, the reasons might be completely different. Although they are two very different personalities, there are definitely some similarities between these two.
Andrew Tate is a former professional kickboxer. In 2009, he won the ISKA Full Contact Cruiserweight Championship in Derby. He also took the number one position in his division in Europe. However, the reason he is very well-known is quite different.
Since his retirement, he has started selling memberships for his course in the “Hustler’s University” and his misogynistic antics in the Big Brother house made him famous overnight. Since then his social media accounts have been banned multiple times and he was arrested with his brother as well, very recently.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, is one of the most influential personalities in the world. However, he has been at the center of controversy not so long ago. During his second spell at Manchester United, after a few unsettling mishaps with Erik ten Hag, he did an explosive interview with Piers Morgan criticizing the club’s higher-ups and manager harshly. His contract was terminated as a result of the turmoil.
