It seems as if there’s no end to the drama surrounding Andrew Tate. The controversial social media personality was arrested last month on suspicion of human trafficking and rape. He and his brother Tristan were also accused of kidnapping. A video has emerged that shows Tate and his brother being led into a waiting vehicle. They were then taken to a court in Bucharest.
While many fans of Tate have been calling for him to be freed, he has been under investigation since April. As a result, he was banned from numerous social media platforms. This, along with his misogynistic views, made him a target of hate speech.
Tate is known for his provocative posts on social media. But he was also a climate activist. His latest tweet was about Greta Thunberg, who was protesting in front of the UN. In this exchange, Tate took swings at the climate activist. One of the supporters of his campaign was former beauty queen Sameera Khan. When she tweeted about his case last year, Tate called her ‘wifey’. However, this was just a part of his ongoing campaign to smear women.
Tate was believed to have been in a relationship with Georgiana Naghel, a model and businesswoman. They had been dating for at least a year, according to reports. Their romance reportedly took place through online video chats. According to Tate, his girlfriend was the only woman who he would date. And the two often attended exclusive clubs in Bucharest.
Tate’s detention was initially supposed to last just 24 hours, but the judge ordered the detention to last for at least 30 days. All four suspects are appealing the decision. If Tate is not released soon, his career as an influencer may be over. After all, he is undrafted in the 2021 NBA draft.
The Romanian police reportedly suspected that Tate was involved in human trafficking. Although this is not confirmed, he has a strong reputation as a misogynist. In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Tate said, “I want to be the biggest sexiest person in the world.”
It’s unclear whether Tate and Naghel had a romantic relationship, or whether the arrest was connected to their relationship. Regardless, the situation is causing confusion among fans of the pair. Many have been calling for the former to be released, while others are calling for the police to reopen the investigation. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is clear: Tate is not the kind of person to be trusted.
