Andrew Tate news live: Influencer held for 30 more days in Romania jail

Andrew Tate news live: Influencer held for 30 more days in Romania jail.

 

Social media influencer Andrew Tate will remain in prison in Romania for another 30 days, an official said, after he was arrested on charges of human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group.

Prosecutors had asked a Bucharest court to extend his detention by 30 days.

Tate, a British citizen who previously was banned from social media platforms for his misogynistic views and hate speech, was arrested on Thursday together with his brother Tristan and two Romanian suspects, according to officials who raided their properties in Bucharest.

All four will be held for 30 days during an investigation after a judge extended their initial detention period of 24 hours, said Ramona Bolla, of anti-organised crime agency Diicot. She said the decision was not final and the suspects may appeal.

“The four suspects … appear to have created an organised crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialised websites for a cost,” prosecutors said.

Prosecutors say they found six women who had been sexually exploited by the suspects.

Tate’s arrest sees Romanian pizza company overwhelmed with positive reviews

ICYMI: A Romanian pizza company that featured in Andrew Tate ‘s viral response video to Greta Thunberg was inundated with positive reviews online following his arrest.

The fast food chain, Jerry’s Pizza, is rated 4.3 stars on Google and is said to be “worth doing time for”, plus it tastes “so good you’ll dox yourself to get a slice”.

Reports suggested local authorities could have used Tate’s video, featuring pizza boxes from the prominent Romanian takeaway, as proof he was in the country.

But did the pizza box really give away his location?

Elon Musk appears to once again taunt Andrew Tate over his arrest.

Musk tweeted on Saturday evening: “Sometimes it’s just better to make pizza at home” – an apparent reference to Tate’s detention after a widely shared image of him eating from a pizza box in a social media video response to climate activist Greta Thunberg drew speculation that the local pizza place gave away his location.

But the arrest of the social media personality followed a months-long investigation and the “hard job” of “gathering all the evidence,” Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIIOCT) spokesperson Ramona Bolla told The Washington Post.

Andrew Tate proves once again that he is the ultimate loser

“It was the ultimate clash of good versus evil, like Gandalf against Saruman, or Obi-Wan battling Anakin, or the Avengers vs Thanos; like when Taylor Swift was proved right over Kanye West, or when Meghan Markle’s point was made by a Jeremy Clarkson own goal.

It was a moment of pure, unadulterated, snort-Diet-Coke-from-your-nose joy. It was Twitter at its very best.

Nineteen-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg, four times Nobel Peace Prize nominee and youngest ever Time person of the year, slapped down controversial influencer Andrew Tate in the most supremely careless and perfect way.”

Opinion This is what Andrew Tate’s arrest means for Muslim women like me

“Is it him? That shiny bald head, manicured beard, and gradient “I’m a celebrity” sunglasses are unmistakeable. A four-minute clip of Andrew Tate, a controversial figure who is known for making vulgar and inflammatory statements about women, has infiltrated the intimate boundaries of my smartphone through a forwarded WhatsApp video. Prior to this, I’ve actively avoided researching or discussing Tate, despite his notoriety on social media – I’d hate to give any more airtime to the self-proclaimed misogynist who is already one of the most frequently googled people on the internet.

But this time I give in, and a quick search leads me to the original video, posted on YouTube a year ago by a “male self-improvement” podcast that hosts “Womanizer Wednesdays”. In the three-hour interview, Tate spews some twisted and simplistic statements about Islam in his apparent attempt to praise the religion.

Those sharing his content – particularly older men who aren’t on social media – may be oblivious to the fact that Tate is a controversial and notorious misogynist, and that he was arrested on Thursday in Romania on suspicion of rape and human trafficking (after a very satisfying Twitter exchange with Greta Thunberg). Along with his brother, Tate has been under investigation for the kidnapping of two young women and participation in a criminal group that sexually exploits women.”

Andrew Tate’s kickboxing record edited on Wikipedia to show Greta Thunberg Twitter defeat

ICYMI: Andrew Tate was detained in Romania on suspicion of human trafficking, less than 24 hours after the kickboxer turned controversial influencer hit out at climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter.

Following the pair’s heated Twitter exchange, an edited Wikipedia entry has gone viral showing Tate was knocked out by Thunberg in a kickboxing match located on the “Twitter streets”.

The saga began on 29 December when Tate – who was recently reinstated on Twitter after Elon Musk took over the platform – directed a tweet at Thunberg, in which he attempted to bait the 19-year-old climate campaigner into a debate about the carbon emissions of his “33 cars”.

Charity calls for TikTok to ban Big Brother star Andrew Tate over ‘misogynistic’ videos

Here’s a reminder of the harm that Andrew Tate’s content is doing online. Tate was permanently banned from Tiktok this summer for his hateful videos.

The former kickboxer has previously said that women “belong in the home”, are a “man’s property”, “can’t drive” and he has also said that he thinks rape survivors must “bear responsibility” for their attacks.

Some of his most viral videos see him expressing opinions such as “women can’t drive”, that 18-year-old women are “more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’ve been through less d***”, and that women should “shut the f**k up, have kids, sit at home, be quiet and make coffee”.

Opinion: Why are so many British Muslims getting seduced by Andrew Tate?

Here is an opinion piece Rabbil Sikdar wrote earlier this year about Andrew Tate’s notoriety:

“Online notoriety is easy to attain these days. One moment someone exists in obscurity, and in the next, they’re all over Instagram, Tiktok or YouTube.

One of the latest fixations is a man called Andrew Tate. Almost overnight, Tate has become a cult-like figure to young men and boys across many English-speaking countries. A former kickboxer, now an online personality, his appeal to disillusioned men is unsurprising: he spends a lot of his time discussing how men can improve themselves. But just as often, content for men quickly becomes entangled with views on women, relationships, and feminism. And for many young men who find the dating world to be a story of rejections, Tate’s criticisms of women sound valid.”

Andrew Tate’s Twitter account tweets about The Matrix again

Pizza box didn’t lead to Andrew Tate’s arrest in Romania, authorities said

A pizza box did not tip Romanian law enforcement agencies to the whereabouts of misogynist influencer Andrew Tate before his arrest on human trafficking charges, according to officials.

Memes and a widely shared image of Mr Tate eating from a pizza box in a social media video response to climate activist Greta Thunberg drew speculation that the local pizza place gave away his location.

But the arrest of the 36-year-old misogynist social media personality and his brother on Thursday followed a months-long investigation and the “hard job” of “gathering all the evidence,” Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIIOCT) spokesperson Ramona Bolla told The Washington Post.
