André identifies as an agnostic atheist, and he practices Transcendental Meditation. In 2020, he endorsed Bernie Sanders in the presidential election and phonebanked for the Sanders campaign.
In April 2021, Eric alleged that he had been the victim of racial profiling at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport after agents stopped him and asked if they “could search [him] for drugs” as he was attempting to board his flight. André said that he was the only person of color in line at the time, and after the offending party, the Clayton County Police Department, issued a response on social media (that was “full of misinformation,” according to Eric), he tweeted, “I did NOT volunteer to a search and I did not volunteer to talk. You guys flashed your badge and detained me with no probable cause except for racism.”
