‘Toxic’ social media influencer Andrew Tate arrested in Romania

Prosecutors have confirmed that Andrew Tate, a social media influencer, was arrested in Romania for human trafficking, sexual assault and forming an organized crime group.

According to prosecutors, the British-American-born Tristan, 36-year-old Tristan and Tristan were both arrested Thursday evening. They are currently being held for 24 hours with two Romanian suspects.

Prosecutors stated that the four suspects “appear to have established an organised crime group with a purpose of recruiting and housing women, exploiting them by forcing them into creating pornographic content to be seen on specialised sites for a fee.”

They would have gotten significant sums of money.


Although the brothers have not commented on their criminal case since April, their lawyer confirmed that they were detained.

Six people were identified by the prosecution as having been sexually exploited in a “organised crime group”, according to Prosecutors.

They claimed that victims were being recruited by British citizens who misrepresented their intentions to enter into a marriage, cohabitation relationship, and the existence genuine feelings of love.

The group members then took them to Romania’s Ilfov County where they “exercised acts of physical violence, mental coercion, through intimidation and constant surveillance, control, and invoking alleged loans – they sexually exploited them by making them perform demonstrations pornographic to produce and disseminate through social media platforms material of such a nature and by submitting for the execution of a force labour.”

Tate was a former kickboxer who was banned from Twitter in 2017 due to his hate speech and misogynistic views. However, he was reinstated last month.

His presence is still present on other social media platforms, such as TikTok. However, content posted under the hashtag Andrew Tate was viewed billions upon billions of times.

Tate was first famous for his removal from Big Brother in 2016. He had a clip that showed him attacking a woman wearing a belt. Tate claimed the clip had been edited.

He suggested that rape victims should “take some responsibility” for being attacked, and he called women “property” of men.

He also said that he would brutally assault a woman who accused him of cheating.

Concerns have been raised about his impact on young people, especially young men.

Tate denied having misogynistic views, and accused his critics “twisting facts”. However, he also called himself the “king of toxic masculinity”.

Tate shared an earlier in the week a photo of himself next to a Bugatti, and claimed he owned 33 cars. This caused a row on Twitter with Greta Thunberg, a climate campaigner.

He tweeted “Please give me your email address to send you a complete list my cars and their enormous emissions” and tagged Ms Thunberg.

Ms Thunberg replied by saying “Yes, please enlighten us”, adding a fake address mocking him and ending the sentence with “”.
