Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the circulating claim and found it to be fake. “The Simpsons” did not predict the rise of Andrew Tate. In fact, the show has never mentioned him or made any reference to him. 

Misbar’s team found that the character featured in the circulating video is called Stark Richdale.  According to the show’s popular fan pages, Stark Richdale is the teacher of the extension class "Successmanship 101" and author of the book “Megatronics, The 48 Tips to Corporate Success.”

The character is a parodical satire of all motivational speakers who downplay life’s struggles and make success seem effortlessly withing reach. 

Can The Simpsons Predict the Future?

“The Simpsons” is a long-running animated television show that has been on air since 1989. Throughout its many seasons, the show has become known for its witty writing.

“The Simpsons” has been known to make several predictions about future events in its episodes. These predictions are often made through the use of satire and parody.

Examples of the show’s famous predictions include the episode that aired in 2000, which predicted that Donald Trump would become President of the United States. 

However, it should be noted that many of these predictions are coincidental, and not necessarily made with the intention of being accurate.

In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Al Jean, the showrunner of “The Simpsons,” commented: "There is the kind of prediction, where we reference something that has happened, happening again — we hope it wouldn’t, but sadly, it does.”

Misbar has debunked several other claims related to “The Simpsons” being a predictive TV show.

Who is Andrew Tate?

The claim was shared after Tate was detained in Romania for a human trafficking and rape investigation.

Andrew Tate is a British kickboxer and businessman who is known for his provocative views. Despite his controversial online persona, he has managed to build a sizable following on platforms like YouTube and Twitter.
