A mental health expert he’s not.
Andrew Tate, a kickboxing champion and former star of “Big Brother UK,” continued to post misinformed comments about depression on Twitter Monday after starting a firestorm last week by asserting “depression isn’t real.”
Depression isn't real. You feel sad, you move on. You will always be depressed if your life is depressing. Change it. Thread.— Andrew Tate (@Cobratate) September 7, 2017
1. False. 2. You're not "sad." You're insane & can't move on & need help. 3. False. 4. Energy drink tagline/bullshit. 5. Fuck you/no thread https://t.co/RnFdzeMi6e?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) September 8, 2017
This thread will teach you a lot about the defence mechanism of projection, but zero about the real mental illness that is depression. https://t.co/PqP1n1DMnT?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 8, 2017
Model Chrissy Teigen chimed in, as well.
"Depression isn't real" "you will always be depressed if..." so confusing ahhhhh— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 9, 2017
But instead of considering himself down for the count, Tate continued to tweet on the subject into Monday:
MY DEPRESSION INBOX. Is hilarious. Full of crybabys. Maybe I should read them all out pic.twitter.com/cOIkWP7akb— Andrew Tate (@Cobratate) September 11, 2017
The depression thing is boring to tweet about now. I was proved right. - losers keep the cry stories. Let winners win— Andrew Tate (@Cobratate) September 11, 2017
Over 1000 messages just like this. pic.twitter.com/AEjSU30jE6— Andrew Tate (@Cobratate) September 11, 2017
Tate has been able to grab Rowling’s attention before, so this likely won’t be his last high-profile Twitter match.
