In Andrew Tate’s shoes! Meet Sneako - most recently banned YouTuber

August 3, 2023

Sneako was born as Nico Kenn De Balinthazy in September 8, 1998, in USA. At age of 24 his net worth is estimated at $1.5 million. Before being banned, he had 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube, which made this young influencer one of the most popular social media stars.

The beggining of Nico Kenn De Balinthazy aka Sneako

Believe it or not, but this youtuber hasn’t been in Tate machismo mode from the start.

Sneako began his career in 2013. by posting a Call of Duty gameplay. He was 15 years old when he started his first YouTube channel.

At the time, he appeared to be an ambitious and curious kid with social awareness. Sneako discussed topics such as “Should the US intervene in Syria” and  “The Definition of Racism.”

However, in the meantime he figured out how to make more fuss, which caused more views and more subscribers, which made more publicity, which eventually led to more money. And 9 years later, Nico Kenn De Balinthazy is a worldwide celebrity, millionaire, living a dream.

As a result of “evolving” as an entrepreneur in 2022, Sneako published videos called “Why Ugly Girls Think They’re Beautiful” and “How Women Manipulate Men”. If these headlines remind you of Andrew Cobra Tate, it’s not coincidence.

Sneako didn’t hide his relationship with TopG, Andrew Tate, and it is believed to be his role model. He recently was in Bucharest, Romania, in Andrew’s house, just before he was banned. His appearance with Cobra in Fresh & Fit is, according to him, closely related to the ban.

His narrative, before and after this incident, is very similar to Andrew’s. You can often hear words such as: the matrix, red pill, the truth, waking people up, conspiracy, etc. And no, it’s not Keanu Reeves, it’s Sneako. Repeating Andrew’s words.

Social media cancel culture continues

Unfortunately, Sneako wasn’t the only one who got burned by the Tate fire. Just a few weeks before G2 former CEO Carlos Rodriguez was forced to resign his position due to social media outrage. The cause was releasing a video with Andrew and Tristan Tate at a celebration party. Now Sneako was banned just after shaking hands with Andrew.  

Apparently social platforms seem to be more restrictive than before, or maybe public awareness regarding narrative has risen and the pressure to censure is bigger than ever. If you ask red pillers what is going on, they will all tell you that their bann is part of a great conspiracy against them.  

As Sneako said, in Rhino’s video “...they want me to be broke. They froze my google ads account….it is a little bit heartfull….”

It was probably more than a little bit heartfull. In his last message he sounds very hurt, disappointed, sad. He even said he’s been wrong by Google, by social media, by his peers etc.

Sneako describes his YouTube content as artistic, creative funny videos, where people ”seek truth through funny”. The theme of his live streams was labeled as red pill, which was misinterpreted, he said. His description of his content and work  is so far from what the public understood as troubled. It seems Sneako doesn't fully understand why he’s banned, or what he’s done wrong. There is a huge discrepancy between these two points of view.

The official information is that YouTube decided to remove both of Sneako's channels, due to repeated violations of Community Guidelines. The point is that he didn't do anything new and appalling, but rather accumulation of his disputed videos sealed the ban. Maybe the message for Sneako was if you want to be Andrew Tate, then receive Tate treatment.

After all, opinions are divided regarding canceling people’s channels, deleting videos, cutting their source of income on social platforms. Recent events raised some questions about freedom of speech, pushing the limits, digital violence, misogyny,  influence on young people and many more. While one part of the public welcomes such decisions, the other part is concerned about the abuse of power by the owners of social networks.
