Controversial influencer Andrew Tate endorses former PM Imran Khan, hails Pakistan's judiciary in latest tweet
Influencer Andrew Tate stirs up social media with support for ex-PM Imran Khan, praising Pak's judiciary after Khan's illegal arrest ruling.
Controversial influencer Andrew Tate has sparked outrage on social media once again, this time for showing support for Pakistan's former Prime Minister Imran Khan. Tate's tweet, in which he claimed that Pakistan has an honest judicial system, was in response to the news that the Supreme Court in Pakistan had deemed Khan's arrest as illegal.
This unexpected show of support from Tate, who has been in the headlines for his controversial views has left many scratching their heads. Earlier this week, Tate tweeted, "All the good guys go to jail," after the news of Khan's arrest was announced. It seems that Tate sees a kindred spirit in Khan, who has been embroiled in numerous scandals and controversies over the years.
The reaction to Tate's tweet was swift, with supporters and critics alike taking to social media to voice their opinions. One Twitter user, who seems to be a fan of both Tate and Khan, wrote, "Top G, my man, a much-awaited podcast with you, Khan, Trump, and Putin by an honorable and unbiased host would be a huge favor to this world." Meanwhile, another user wrote, "Not at all. It's one of the worst judicial systems. But this time they did well."
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's arrest on corruption charges by paramilitary troops sparked protests and deadly clashes. Pakistan's Supreme Court declared Khan's arrest unlawful, and he will appear again on Friday. Khan was held in a guesthouse inside police headquarters and remanded in custody for eight days by Pakistan's anti-corruption agency. His lawyers had filed a petition against holding judicial proceedings against their client in the police headquarters instead of a courthouse. Khan's arrest led to a wave of reactions on social media, including support from controversial influencer Andrew Tate.
Andrew Tate's involvement in this latest controversy is just the latest in a long line of scandals and legal troubles. In late 2022, Tate was arrested in Romania on charges related to human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized criminal group. Alongside his brother Tristan and two Romanian women, Tate was detained but later released from jail and placed under house arrest pending further investigation.
