Nowadays, anyone famous can theoretically get a future Fortnite skin. When the title first came out, nothing of the sort was imaginable. However, today, people like Bruno Mars, Ninja, LeBron James, Harry Kane, Ali-A, Travis Scott, Bugha, and many other celebrities have been added to the game as skins.
There is a good chance that many other famous figures like Eminem, Billie Eilish, and Tom Cruise could eventually become part of the metaverse. One concept artist took this idea and ran with it. They created a skin concept for one of the most famous (or perhaps infamous) people today: Andrew Tate.
Many fans love the skin concept. The post itself has received over 45,000 likes since being posted.
However, not all fans were impressed with the concept, given Tate's controversial status.
Tate is one of the most divisive figures today. Thanks to social media, he's developed an almost cult-like following. His fans will be thrilled to see him in Epic Games' hit battle royale someday.
Could Andrew Tate come to Fortnite?
There was once a viral meme about Andrew Tate being banned from Fortnite. It wasn't accurate since he probably didn't even play the game.
However, it's incredibly unlikely for him to get a skin of his own. Epic Games is a pretty inclusive developer that doesn't tolerate contentious elements.
Tate has been under fire for a long time for controversial comments he routinely makes about women. His entire brand is built around men being superior and how they can use women to their advantage, which doesn't sound very Fortnite-friendly.
Additionally, Tate has been accused of rape and other sexual crimes. Some of the victims reportedly have proof of the incidents, including messages from the internet personality himself. He was also arrested in Romania and is currently under investigation for human trafficking. None of this is something Epic Games will likely want to be associated with.
Tate has developed a huge fanbase despite all these controversies. His skin might be popular if it were ever added, but Epic Games is unlikely to promote him due to all the controversy and divisiveness in opinions about him.
While Tate may never get a Fortnite skin, there are plenty of other famous people who probably will.
