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.
This gave away Tate‘s location as the brand was located exclusively in Romania, which supposedly finally gave the authorities the proof he was in the country.
Before it emerged that this was untrue, Twitter’s eccentric new owner, Elon Musk, looked to poke some fun at the 38-year-old, clearly enjoying someone else being in the headlines for a change.
“Sometimes it’s just better to make pizza at home,” Musk posted on Twitter.
