“The four suspects … appear to have created an organised crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialised websites for a cost,” prosecutors said. “They would have gained important sums of money.”

The two brothers have been under investigation for criminal activity since April, Reuters reported.

Tate spoke to Fox’s Tucker Carlson in August after Tate claimed big tech de-platformed him because he “had large swaths of the population agreeing to the very traditional masculine values”

“…I have a very traditionally masculine life. I have fast cars and a big house and a lot of money and a beautiful girlfriend, and they thought this was very, very threatening,” Tate told Carlson. “And for some reason, they decided that it’s better if they annihilate me from the internet and replace me with somebody who’s more aligned with whatever they’re trying to purport.”

Tate has been accused of sexism and drawing criticism from the Left after advocating for traditional gender roles.

Tate also got into a spat with climate activist Greta Thunberg this week on Twitter after boasting that he had 33 cars with “enormous emissions.” Thunberg responded by telling Tate to get a life.
