Andrew Tate responds to brutal roasting by South Park in latest episode
| Last updated
Down the years, South Park has mocked some of the world's biggest stars - and controversial influencer Andrew Tate is the latest to have been put to the sword.
He's exactly the kind of personality Trey Parker and Matt Stone expertly target on their animated comedy series, and they certainly took aim in the latest episode in typical fashion.
Now, 36-year-old Tate has shared his take on his South Park appearance.
In a tweet shared with his 5.6 million followers, Tate said: "When I will be proven innocent. I look forward to help create the greatest South Park episode of all time."
He added in a follow-up tweet: "I met one of my lifelong heroes, Randy Marsh."
In late December, Tate and his brother Tristan were detained in Bucharest.
But yesterday, the internet personality won an appeal to replace his detention with house arrest.
Speaking following his release, he said: "I have no resentment in my heart for the country of Romania, or for anybody else.
"I just believe in the truth. So I believe in God and I think that the fire of truth will eventually destroy all lies and anybody who lies in a long enough timeframe will feel the sting of regret.
"I truly believe that justice will be served in the end. There is 0 percent chance of me being found guilty of something I have not done. I maintain my absolute innocent innocence.
"I think most people understand this and I look forward to being home, so thank you so much."
He then added: "When I was in jail, I did 7,417 push ups."
Following his release, he also posted a bizarre video of him just pacing up and down a room.
Tate is known for his misogynistic views - previously stating that women 'bear responsibility' for rape - and spreading conspiracy theories, but he has amassed millions of followers on social media.
He was previously banned from various platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.
When asked whether the divisive persona seen on the internet is a character, Tina Glandian told Times Radio: "Yes and it's not even just in my view – there's certainly interviews I've seen where Andrew himself has said, 'You know I say a lot of things, it's satire'.
"I've heard a lot of silly things, I've heard him talk about whether eggs are real or the fact that he's existed for 5,000 years because you know there's a ninja warrior inside of him.
"There's lots of things I think he says as entertainment. It's his public persona and those things are not all intended to be taken seriously."
Yesterday, the Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Tate's appeal, which challenged a judge's decision last week to extend his arrest for a fourth time.
He will now remain under house arrest until 29 April, a spokesperson said.
No one has yet been formally charged.
Throughout, Tate has claimed Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and alleged their case is a 'political' conspiracy designed to silence him.
