Andrew Tate, the controversial social media influencer, has denied taking steroids, and testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). In a recent Twitter post, Tate showcased his ripped physique and underscored that he’s never touched steroids or TRT.
Andrew and his brother, Tristan Tate were arrested last December in Romania, Bucharest for alleged human sex-trafficking crimes until the end of March. Following a number of appeals to be discharged from an initial 30-day detention, Romanian authorities released the Tate brothers on March 31. Tristan and Andrew deny all allegations.
I preach a lot with @Cobratate.
– Mental strength
– Dealing with adversity
If you think I am foolish enough to do this for years and think God wasn’t going to come along and test me you’re wrong.

Having been released, Andrew Tate’s following has only swelled online. He boasts 6.2 million Twitter followers despite being banned from other social media platforms. He was able to document most of his time in prison and shared that he was allotted just one meal a day. Tate still trained while incarcerated, which he credits for preserving his mental focus. Currently under house arrest with two women related to his court case, Tate showed off his ripped physique.

Tate isn’t the only popular influencer whose ‘natty or not’ status has been under the microscope. Bodybuilder and model Mike O’Hearn has come under fire for suspected steroid use. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has also been accused of using such substances, as podcast host Joe Rogan pointed out a few months ago.
Perhaps the most notorious ‘natty or not’ case belongs to Brian Johnson, who is well known as the Liver King. After claiming to be natural for more than a year online, Johnson came clean after Derek from The More Dates More Plates YouTube channel exposed his cycle in a leaked email.

The last time bodybuilding fans heard from Andrew Tate, he took issue with the sport, suggesting that athletes only pursue the endeavor because they don’t have the skills to participate in a real fight. He went as far as to say that ‘all bodybuilders are pussys afraid of combat sports.’
