Old Video of Tucker Carlson interviewing Andrew Tate Shared as Tate’s Recent Interview After his Arrest in Romania…

International Misleading

American kick-boxer Andrew Tate who is notoriously known for his extremely misogynistic views is not new to controversies. This time he stirred up a new controversy after he poked teenage climate justice activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter. 

Displaying his fleet of 33 luxurious cars, Tate mocked Greta Thunberg and asked her to provide her email address. Greta responded by a sarcastic tweet that said, “yes, please do enlighten me. email me at [email protected].”

Greta is known for her sarcasm and her insulting reply didn’t go well with Tate. Tate later responded with a 2 minute video in which he can be seen smoking cigar and taking shots at Greta Thunberg. In the video, he pauses to demand some Pizza and asks not to recycle the Cardboard Cartons.

Later, reports of Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan have been arrested on charges of human trafficking appeared. According to Reuters, Tate was presented before a court in Romania and the prosecutors have asked for 30 day detention of Tate and his brother.

The prosecutors were quoted saying, “Anti-organised crime prosecutors have notified the rights and liberties judge with the Bucharest Court with a proposal to remand the four suspects for 30 days.

Amid all this, a video of conservative American Television host Tucker Carlson interviewing Tate started doing rounds on social media. Some shared this video and claimed Andrew Tate has been released. You can see a Facebook post making the claim below.
