J.K. Rowling and Patton Oswalt to the rescue.
On Sept. 7, 2017, kickboxer Andrew Tate tweeted that "depression isn't real."
"You feel sad, you move on," he wrote to his 26,000 fans and followers. "You will always be depressed if your life is depressing."
Andrew Tate is not a medical doctor, mental health professional, nor expert in any related field that would add weight to his (seemingly unsolicited) opinion on the subject. Yet, in a combative 13-part Twitter thread, the athlete argued his assertion is correct because he believes that people living with depression are simply "lazy" and will find any excuse to "absolve responsibilities" to feel better.
