Fighter Takes On Anime And ‘Funimation’ Responds

MMA fighter Andrew Tate has gone on the offensive. In a blatant and opinion oriented tweet, he slammed Anime and the fans who enjoy it. It read as the following:

This comment was met with lots of negative feedback. Most notable was a follow up by Funimation replying to him with Dragonball Z’s character Son Goku giving a response:

Additional comments justifying the love of anime came as Ben Nguyen one of the top 10 UFC fighters in the world chimed in and expressed his love for the media.

Andrew Tate has been living up to his Twitter description of “toxic masculinity” lately. He has often been using his account to spread his unique philosophies on life. Considering the fighter’s accusation of depression simply being a state of mind and not an actual mental disease his most recent comments seem to be almost timid nature. Hopefully, this most recent comment is just another misguided and ill informed statement will finally help Mr. Tate see things and in less broad terms.

Nevermind. After the initial release of his tweet against Anime and its fans, Mr. Tate has continued to be offensive. Apparently this situation is not going to be resolved anytime soon. Luckily, Funimation hasn’t let up themselves and still continues to make an effort to prove the fighter wrong.
