(NewsGlobal.com)- While sitting in his Romanian cell, Andrew Tate issued a message to Logan Paul, according to Newsweek. The controversial figure reportedly looked to “ramp up beef” with the Youtuber and boxer.
Tate, 36, was a former professional kickboxer put in jail for allegedly being a part of an organized crime group and human trafficking. He was to remain in prison for 24 hours to 30 days while authorities concluded their investigations into him. He has since maintained his innocence.
A fight between the two figures was speculated to take place, but that had become less likely after Tate’s arrest. Nevertheless, his detainment did not stop Tate from raising the conflict with his millions of followers on social media, including Twitter, which had reinstated his account after Elon Musk took over the company.
Paul, 27, has recently been accused of scamming his followers with a cryptocurrency game he reportedly produced in 2021. He had touted CryptoZoo as a “really fun game that makes you money,” but it was revealed that the game was a scam, according to a series put out by YouTube investigator Stephen “Coffeezilla” Findeisen in December 2022.
The part-time boxer had said that he was going to sue for defamation but Findeisen reportedly said that Paul had called him to say he was “dropping the lawsuit threats.” Paul then took the Youtuber’s side, writing in the CryptoZoo Discord group that he was “grateful [Findeisen] brought this to light.”
“I will be taking accountability, apologizing, and coming forward with a plan in the future…I know it’s been bumpy, but your support is everything to me and I will make this right,” Logan continued.
Findeisen has offered his own solution to the fiasco, calling on Paul to refund the victims of the scheme.
But that did not stop Tate, who took to Twitter to mock Paul, saying that people even talk about him being a scammer in prison.
