Ridvan Aydemir, better known online as Apostate Prophet, is an Ex-Muslim, Turkish-German YouTuber known for critiquing Islam.
Ridvan was formerly a devout Sunni Muslim who was born to a Turkish family in Germany. Ridvan moved to Turkey as a teenager where he went to high school and served his mandatory military service. During his time in Turkey, he became interested in Islam and decided to practice it devoutly. Although raised in a conservative Muslim environment, his study of Islam led him to doubt the religion, and eventually, he left it altogether. This severely destabilized his relationship with his family, his friends, and the Turkish government.
Ridvan eventually immigrated to the United States, to live freely in the West. He started publishing videos on his YouTube channel on Nov 10, 2017.
