Jerry’s Pizza reacts to Andrew Tate’s arrest in Romania

Jerry’s Pizza tweet on Andrew Tate was viewed by millions of people after he was arrested in Romania.

“At Jerry’s Pizza, we deliver swift justice,” said a Tweet posted by official account of the brand.

The move came just days after Tate had a heated Twitter exchange with Swedish environmentalist Greta Thunberg, which internet users have speculated helped Romanian police to locate and arrest him.

Viral Twitter exchanges between Tate and Thunberg this week on subjects ranging from cars with “enormous emissions” to pizza boxes, fuelled speculation on social media.

Some internet users argued that Jerry’s Pizza featured in a video posted by Tate in his angry exchanges with Thunberg had helped police confirm Tate’s presence in Romania.

“This is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes,” Thunberg quipped on twitter following Tate’s arrest.

Meanwhile, a Romanian court on Friday ordered the 30-day-detention of controversial influencer Andrew Tate following his arrest for alleged human trafficking, rape and forming a criminal group.

Ramona Bolla, a spokeswoman for Romania’s anti-organised crime and terrorism directorate (DIICOT), told AFP Friday that four suspects had been placed in pre-trial detention for 30 days following their arrest late Thursday.
