The pizza place that led to Andrew Tate’s arrest in Romania is being flooded with positive reviews for its role in taking the divisive public figure down. Boxes from Jerry’s Pizza could be clearly seen in a video Tate posted in response to Greta Thunberg’s epic burn against him the previous day. Incidentally, those boxes confirmed authorities’ belief that Andrew Tate was in Romania, and they soon raided his home and placed him and his brother under arrest. As a result, Jerry’s Pizza is reaping the rewards.
- Some of the reviews being left are hilarious. “Ordered this pizza for a video project I was working on and now I’m in Romanian Prison. Will NOT be ordering again,” one person joked. Another wrote, “Pizza so good you’ll dox yourself to get a slice.” A third posted, “Pizza so damn good, they’ll have to send the cops.”
- We need to thank Greta Thunberg. While ultimately, an unrepentant misogynist targeting a teenage girl half his age to taunt her about caring for the planet is inappropriate and ridiculous, Thunberg was able to brush it off. The fact that Tate couldn’t leave it alone from there (because God forbid a woman get the last word) ultimately screwed him over in the end. Thanks, Greta!
- Less than 24 hours after Tate posted the video, he was in cuffs. “After seeing, including on social networks, that they were together in Romania, the DIICOT prosecutors mobilized the special troops of the Gendarmerie and descended, by force, on their villa in Pipera, but also on other addresses,” Romanian newspaper Gândul said of the incident.
- Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan were arrested in connection with some pretty serious charges. They are suspected of ties to human trafficking, rape, and even the formation of an organized crime group. They’ve been under suspicion for a while now, but authorities couldn’t be sure they were actually in the country… until a few days ago. Per the Atena Observer, police wanted both Tate brothers to be arrested together, hence the delay.
- The Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) released a statement following the arrests. “The prosecutors of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism – Central Structure together with police officers from the Bucharest Organized Crime Brigade implemented 5 home search warrants in a case in which investigations under the aspect of committing the crimes of constituting an organized criminal group, human trafficking, and rape,” it said (via The Guardian). “The four suspects … appear to have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content meant to be seen on specialized websites for a cost.”
