Following Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan being detained by Romanian authorities on suspicion of human trafficking and forming an organised crime group, some people are comparing the controversial social media star's downfall to AJ Soprano's pizza bust in The Sopranos.
On Thursday (29 December), the former kickboxer and internet personality and his brother Tristan were arrested, which prompted people to try and figure out how it all went down.
Attorney Alejandra Caraballo took to her Twitter to assume the duo was arrested because Andrew shared a video of himself online with a pizza box from Romanian pizzeria chain Jerry's Pizza.
"Romanian authorities needed proof that Andrew Tate was in the country so they reportedly used his social media posts," Caraballo tweeted, in part.
\u201cRomanian 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.\n\nThis is absolutely epic.\u201d
Although AJ's situation was a reality for him in the show, that may not be the case for the Tates.
Many thought Caraballo's tweet was correct, which led to more assumptions that he was arrested for a pizza box.
However, Caraballo later admitted that her tweet was made with some assumptions and not verified facts.
\u201cI've gotten quite a bit of pushback about my pizza box tweet. I want to explain my thought process and acknowledge the fair criticism. I had no idea this would go this insanely viral.\n\nFull thread behind why I tweeted this: \ud83e\uddf5\u201d
