True Geordie has vowed to “do better” after being binned by Twitch and Gymshark following Islamaphobic comments he made about Andrew Tate.
The YouTuber and podcast host, whose real name is Brian Davis, faced heavy criticism for cracking an offensive joke during a live stream.
Geordie was asked whether he’d get in the ring with Tate to settle the bad blood between the pair. Co-host Laurence McKenna said he wouldn’t win that fight because Tate has ‘God on his side’ now, in reference to the recent revelations about Tate’s Muslim faith.
Riled by the mention of the former kickboxing champion, Geordie said ‘I would gladly blow myself up if I could take that f**king s**tbag with us’.
McKenna tried to save Geordie from his jibe by saying it was a problematic stereotype about Islamic people – but he quickly doubled down.
“I’m just saying if he really wanted to prove it, do the right thing,” he said while laughing to himself.
Now, Geordie has released a groveling video on YouTube in which he has promised fans he will “improve”.
He said: “I’ve taken the time out the last few days to come to terms with just how much my words have upset people. The first step was to just listen to all of you – the tweets, the comments, the messages, and all my friends – and just communicate with as many people as I could that were affected by my comments on the lives stream.”
He added: “I know for some of you out there I’m a role model, and I want to try to set the best example I possibly can. I know I was wrong, and I want to stand up, not hide away, and I want you to see that I’m truly sorry for what I said.”
Geordie said his subscribers can look forward to the return of his podcast, football, and fighting content “at the right time”, but first insisted he had to apologise to people personally and ‘work on himself’.
