Andrew Tate supporter, Jack Calvert claims he has made thousands of pounds over two months after learning business skills from the former kickboxer.

Speaking on GB News, the 20-year-old denied allegations that Tate is “grooming young men” after attending the Hustlers University - an online course promoting get-rich-quick schemes for £39 a month.

He said: “I definitely wouldn’t say I have been groomed. I feel like I have been shown a particular way of making money.

“Things like retail arbitrage, e-commerce, stocks, marketing, crypto currency, those are the main ways.”

While talking Esther McVey, Calvert said he had made: “Roughly speaking between five and ten thousand pounds over the space of two or three months.”

The Tate brothers are currently in custody in Romania while police investigate allegations of rape and trafficking, which both men deny.

But Calvert says Tate is “innocent until proven guilty” as he added: “If I’m honest I think the strong, masculine side of him is something that a lot of young men look up to and you can’t lie, the supercars and all of the flashy money is something that is clearly appealing to lots of young men.”

Tate rose to notoriety in 2016 when he was removed from reality TV show Big Brother over a video that appeared to show him hitting a woman with a belt.

The 36-year-old has previously said he is “absolutely sexist and I’m absolutely a misogynist”.

Talking in response to Calvert’s claims, Jess Gill told GB News: “I still don’t support Andrew Tate, I don’t agree with this hedonistic attitude of just making money, just getting as many women as possible and it’s so surprising that many quote conservatives agree with him when his ideas are anything but conservative.

“I think that even though he does groom girls and it’s terrible what he does to women. He also ruins innocent boys, vulnerable boys.

“Many men feel like they can’t be ambitious in this society, that they can’t approach women and Andrew Tate has a solution for them because we’re taught by the British left and by progressives that women cannot be contacted because men are vile, men are terrible and that’s simply not the case.

“I think we need a more balanced discussion between both genders how to approach women respectfully.”
