Joe Lampton is the alias of Vlad Obu (Vlad Cristian Obuzic), aka MrLottaHoes on Twitter, a Romanian martial artist, video chat studio owner and influencer with close ties to Andrew and Tristan Tate. Throughout the 2020s, Obu (who was one of the "professors" in Tate's Hustlers University program, also offering his own self-help programs on dating and making money) became increasingly prominent online in manosphere circles. His tweets about hooking up with women began to go viral online during the same span of time, often as the subject of mockery. In June 2023, Obu was reportedly arrested for allegedly forcing women to make adult content.

Online History

His tweets read like satire. I genuinely thought he wasn't for real. Saying things like you "EJACULATED inside WARM PUSSY" reads like you're either making fun of "alpha males", or you're the most deeply closeted homosexual on the planet because ordinary straight guys don't talk like that.

It's been said before that our society is experiencing a crisis of lost masculinity. If this what passes for masculinity these days, then there may be truth to that concern.
