Former kickboxer Andrew Tate recently faced backlash on Twitter. Tate was recently detained by Romanian authorities on suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized crime group, according to Reuters. According to several reports, a pizza box helped cops narrow in on Tate’s location. Tate had posted a video clip of himself in a Versace robe, smoking a cigar, while an off-camera person hands him two boxes of Jerry’s Pizza, a popular Romanian chain.
It has been noted that his arrest, merely a day after posting the video, could have been due to the pizza boxes, reported 9News. The report stated that the boxes may have helped the Romanian police zero in on his location. The authorities reportedly used the video “as proof he was in the country”, stated a report in The Independent.
In the video a pizza box was visible, which had the name of the company that had made and delivered the Italian delicacy.
According to Digi24, the Romanian police successfully wiretapped Andrew Tate and his brother, during which they admitted to a number of crimes. Translated into English, Andrew Tate reportedly said:
“You’re not stupid and you can probably guess how I make so much money. I have to hide what I’m really doing… I’ve been doing this for a long time with a team of girls working on video chat. The company was fake, but this is how I laundered my dirty money. Some of the girls who worked for me… I used them to do other things. To move money or illegal things, documents, etc.”
