Andrew Tate left a lot of people confused with his comments about “The Matrix” after his recent arrest, and it turns out even his lawyer doesn’t quite get it.

The controversial influencer sent out a cryptic tweet when he and his brother Tristan Tate were in custody in Romania after being detained on human trafficking and rape charges.

The tweet read: “The Matrix has attacked me. But they misunderstand, you can’t kill an idea. Hard to kill.

Elon Musk was among the people who mocked Tate for it, while Logan Paul also posted a message about “The Matrix.”

Nexus’ Matthew Moore spoke to Tate’s attorney, Eugen Vidineac, about the Matrix’s comments, who said he “didn’t know” the meaning behind the comments, later denying the same belief as Tate after it was explained to him. .

“I do not know either. I heard the story of The Matrix, but I don’t know,” Vidineac said. “I have a serious profession and I didn’t ask my client about this Matrix story, because I think it’s something on media platforms or internet platforms. . I don’t know about this story with [the] Matrix.”

Moore explained: “He thinks there is a global system that includes big tech and governments etc. that is trying to control and inhibit the way almost everyone lives and that he has been targeted by them.

“Some people might even call it the ‘deep state’ if you like… it’s been targeted by them because it’s trying to ’emancipate the youth.’ Do you believe that as his lawyer?

Vidineac responded: “I don’t believe that… I think that if you are talking about my client’s beliefs, you should ask him at the appropriate time about this matter. This issue has nothing to do with my activity as [his] attorney.”

Meanwhile, Tate’s bodyguard claimed that his boss believed “someone wanted to hurt him”.

In an interview with the BBC, Bogdan Stancu said Tate’s behavior was “somewhat similar” to paranoia, but the influencer did not know where the threat was coming from.

“I wouldn’t say ‘paranoid’ but maybe something similar. He wanted to have a normal life and he couldn’t, maybe it’s normal to be a little more paranoid,” Stancu told the news outlet.
