Andrew Tate arrested: How influencer was ‘caught out by a pizza box & his war of words with Greta Thunberg’

ANDREW Tate’s social media spat with Greta Thunberg may have led to his arrest as a pizza box gave away his location, it is claimed.

The influencer and his brother Tristan were last night arrested over rape and human trafficking allegations after their luxury Romanian villa was raided by cops.

The pair have reportedly been under investigation for the alleged kidnapping of two young women in their villa in the town of Voluntari.

It is suggested the sting may not have happened if Tate had not posted a video on Twitter mocking eco-warrior Greta.

The clip featured a stack of boxes from Romanian pizza chain Jerry’s Pizza – seemingly revealing his location.

Sources close to the investigation told local news outlet Gandul that anti-mafia prosecutors realised Tate and his brother were in the country because of their social media.

Tate also posted scenic footage on Twitter on Christmas Day with the caption “Romania”.

Civil rights attorney Alejandra Caraballo claims the pizza box likely gave away Tate and his brother’s location.

She tweeted: “Romanian authorities needed proof that Andrew Tate was in the country, so they reportedly used his social media posts.

“His ridiculous video yesterday featured a pizza from a Romanian pizza chain, Jerry’s Pizza, confirming he was in the country.”

Tate was on Wednesday blasted for having “small d**k energy” by Greta after he attempted to troll the 19-year-old with a list of his car collection.

The kickboxer tried to taunt the climate change campaigner by bragging about the “enormous emissions” of his vehicles.

He offered to send her a list of his 33 cars – including a Bugatti – if she gave him her email address.

Greta however responded by offering up her email address of “smalld**[email protected]”, to which he responded with the video featuring the pizza box.

The following day, Tate’s Romanian home was raided by the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DICCOT) in Bucharest, reports Libertatea.

He and his brother were detained over warrants issued in relation to forming an organised criminal group, international human trafficking, and rape.

Cops say so far six victims have come forward claiming they were sexually exploited by the organised criminal group. 

Pictures and video show the pair being accompanied out of the house in handcuffs by cops.

Tate is seen with his hood up as armed police dressed in balaclavas led him away.

It is the second time his home was raided as part of the investigation, after cops arrived at his door back in April.

Rapper Cardi B reacted to news of Tate’s arrest by tweeting “well well well” followed by a photo of Greta looking smug.

Controversial Tate initially gained fame after a short-lived appearance on Big Brother.

He was dumped from the reality show over alleged footage of him beating a woman emerged online.

Since then he has sparked revulsion and outrage with a wave of content online.

The Washington DC-born Tate was accused of spreading hate towards women as he built his profile.

The influencer was banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating its terms of service with his controversial comments.

He has previously referred to women as “property” and said they should bear “some responsibility” if they are sexually assaulted.

In August, Tate was banned from a range of other social media sites.

TikTok banned him for misogyny, while Meta said he violated their policies around “Dangerous Individuals and Organisations”.

He is also banned on YouTube.

Tate has denied accusations of misogyny and claimed that many of his clips are “taken out of context”.

Tate’s Twitter official account has now been reactivated after the takeover by Elon Musk.

A spokesman for Andrew and Tristan told The Sun: “We cannot provide any details at the moment regarding alleged reports that they have been detained; however, Andrew and Tristan Tate have the utmost respect for the Romanian authorities and will always assist and help in any way they can.”
