Controversial influencer Andrew Tate has offered Elon Musk $1 million a month to advertise X, formerly known as Twitter.

Musk bought the social media platform in 2022 but has recently seen major advertisers jump ship after he wrote a post accusing Jewish people of pushing hatred and also faced criticism for allowing hate speech to flourish on X.

On Wednesday, the Tesla CEO replied with “the actual truth” to a post that read: “Jewish communties [sic] have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them.” He was then accused by antisemitism watchdog the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for promoting “antisemitic theories” at “a time when antisemitism is exploding in America and surging around the world.”

Major media companies such as Apple, Paramount Global, Disney, Lionsgate and Warner Bros. then pulled their advertising from X, as did technology corporation IBM.

But Tate, who had been previously banned from Twitter and other social media platforms, promised to stand by Musk.

“I will advertise X on X, I will literally promote your own platform on this platform. 1,000,000 USD a month. You dont [sic] need other advertisers. Simply let me know where to pay@elonmusk,” he posted on X.

Newsweek contacted Tate’s representatives by email for comment.

Tate, a former professional kickboxer, rose to notoriety as a contestant on the U.K. version of reality TV show Big Brother in 2016 where he became infamous for his misogynistic comments. He was later removed from the show after a video recorded before he entered the house showed him hitting a woman, which he claimed was consensual.

He was reinstated to Twitter when Musk closed the sale of the platform in October last year.

Tate was arrested in December 2022 at his compound in Bucharest, Romania, on charges of human trafficking, rape and tampering with evidence. Romania’s anti-organized-crime agency has accused Tate and his brother Tristan Tate of coercing six women into producing pornography through threatening “acts of physical violence and mental coercion.” They were arrested along with two Romanian women, but all four have denied wrongdoing.

The brothers were released into house arrest after three months in jail, and later released from that but were ordered to stay in Bucharest unless given consent by a court to leave the area.

Prosecutors in Tate’s trial also requested permission from the court to confiscate a number of physical assets which included 15 blocks of properties, 15 luxury cars, 14 luxury watches, and metal—it was not made clear what the metals were.

They also asked to confiscate shares held within four commercial companies, around $384,904,789 in cryptocurrency and ordered the defendants to pay the state’s advance legal expenses of around 300,000 Lei ($66,047).
