The Internet Is Mercilessly Mocking Julian Assange For His 'Male Secret' Tweet

'Women, I will let you in on a male secret...'

Infamous whistleblower and controversial embassy-dweller Julian Assange is getting mocked left right and centre on Twitter for a, quite frankly, bonkers Tweet.

The founder of WikiLeaks, who has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012, penned a strange Tweet on Saturday.

He wrote on his account in the afternoon, 'Women, I will let you in on a male secret. Men know that constantly self-proclaiming male 'feminists' are often predatory sleaze bags. They are intensely disliked by other men because of their manipulative qualities and not, in general, because they are viewed to be sex traitors.'

He then went on to point out the hypocrisy of a Swedish Policeman who was a public and vocal feminist, yet has been revealed as a sex trafficker and rapist.

People jumped onto this Tweet's oddness quickly, each stating their own 'male secret' that they had to tell the ladies:

A couple of people were also quick to point out that the Australian-native has handily placed a blue emoji next to his name, perhaps in lieu of a certified tick?

Though, what many people pointed out was the apparent irony that Assange is, himself, in hiding due to the fact he was accused of rape and assault in Sweden.

Though the charges have now been dropped (many people think due to Sweden's inability to extradite him from the Embassy), Assange still has not left the Embassy for fear of being arrested for breaching his bail conditions in the first place, as well as the possibility of then being extradited to the U.S. for his alleged role in the leaking of classified information.

The claims against Assange include rape and molestation - claims which Assange has strenuously denied, insisting that the woman 'made it very clear that she wanted to have sexual intercourse with [him]' and that nothing was forced.
