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.
Andrew Tate’s Twitter account shared an article suggesting he or his brother were taken to the hospital on Sunday while in Romanian jail.
It wasn’t clear who made the post, since Tate is incarcerated. Though the account suggested Tate had been “attacked,” Romanian media suggested a more mundane reality.
Tate’s post linked to news from the Romanian outlet Spy News which stated one of the brothers had been sent to the hospital following a routine health checkup in prison. It did not specify whether it was Andrew or his brother Tristan.
Spy News in turn cited a report from Romanian CNN affiliate Antena 3, where journalist Carmina Pricopie is quoted describing the brother getting referred to a hospital expert after his medical exam. There were rumors he was attacked in jail.
“The Matrix has attacked me,” the account tweeted. “But they misunderstand, you cannot kill an idea. Hard to Kill.”
