Since December, Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan have been detained in Romanian custody on suspicion of sexual assault and complicity in people trafficking.
Despite their current predicament, “Cobra” has persisted in using Twitter to communicate with people all around the world.
The Tate brothers have gained notoriety online in recent years due to their strong and divisive views on a variety of subjects, including women and male-female interactions.
A report from BuzzFeed News seems to suggest that their father may have held the misogynistic opinions that have previously been associated with the duo.
According to the article, Emory Tate Jr., the father of Andrew and Tristan Tate, boasted on Facebook about beating a woman and “without leaving a mark” in 2011:
“The times I struck a woman [in passion] I never left a mark. No trace. Hyper control…. super-control of the human animal. They love me still.”
Also, in 2015, Tate Jr. claimed in a Facebook post that Bill Cosby’s rape victims were drug users.
“One pill and poke from Bill, and the whole story is of a damsel in distress. How is this, then, rape, when all of Hollywood was high as a kite.”
