Andrew Tate and his younger brother Tristan were arrested on the 29th of December at their home in Romania on suspicion of human trafficking.
If you are unaware of this, you’ve either been hiding under a rock or simply don’t care. Even my grandparents have asked me about my opinion on this highly controversial influencer.
For the time being, all of his assets have been seized. You will understand that these assets are considerable if you are familiar with the tweet he sent out to climate change activist Greta Thunberg shortly before his arrest.
According to the tweet, he has 33 luxury cars! Both of the brothers have maintained their innocence through his team of lawyers.
They have, in fact, gone one step further, suggesting they are victims of an extraordinary attack.
Andrew Tate has been quite prolific on Twitter, considering he is currently detained.
Many people think that he is sending out the Tweets by himself, but the truth is that his team are most likely the ones tweeting on his behalf.
Nuanced opinions are not the order of the day regarding the Andrew Tate situation. Social Media appear to be split into two camps. The first camp being those who are happy about the allegations as they view this man as a toxic influencer whose words could be very damaging for the young boys and men who digest his content. There are also those who believe he is being silenced for promoting traditional masculinity.
The theories of how and why he would be silenced vary drastically but revolve around the elite wanting to keep men unambitious. If all men had the same mindset as the Tates, the world would be very different, and this so-called elite wouldn’t be able to maintain such control. There are so many theories on this that it would be impossible to give you a coherent overview of all of them now.
As you can see from the Tweet below, he doesn’t have much respect for people who are willing to wait for the findings before making their judgment.
Anyone who believes I am a human trafficker may as well go and take their 10th vaccine.
There are 0 victims, 0 proof of any crime in our case file.
They have arrested me to “look” for evidence,
Which they will not find because it doesn’t exist.

The following tweet illustrates the narrative he is trying to paint to make himself appear the victim of a matrix attack. In other words, he is sarcastically telling people to go about their everyday lives believing everything they are told.
Anyone who believes I’m a human trafficker is genuinely a moron.
Anyone smart enough to understand the American System is unfair would be mind blown by the injustice of the Romanian System.

Romania authority DIICOT claims to have identified six victims in total, but as of yet, we know very little about the claims being made. The law in Romania states that suspects can be held in a criminal investigation for up to 30 days. However, this can, in exceptional cases, be extended 30 days at a time. Although this amount cannot exceed 180 days. Tates lawyers appealed against this 30-day detention but were unsuccessful and will undoubtedly be hoping extended time is not needed.
We are nearing the end of this initial period, and it will be fascinating to see what will eventually be the outcome. Either way, the story will take many unexpected turns, and we will be here to bring you any updates.
