The former kickboxing champion had decided to stand behind the Tesla, Inc. CEO in the highly anticipated "cage match" against his Facebook rival. Tate has even offered to train Twitter's controversial owner as he prepares for the epic showdown.

The influencer also used the opportunity to express his grievances with Zuckerberg's company. This comes when the former athlete is facing legal charges in Romania for alleged rape, human trafficking, and forming an organized crime group. Taking to Twitter, he wrote:

"Meta banned me everywhere for telling the truth about vaccines. But now we can restore honour with a strike at the enemy clans leader. I will train you @elonmusk. You will not lose."

The highly publicized clash between the tech giants has escalated on social media as the two engage in a back-and-forth banter over their supposed agreement to face off in a fight in Las Vegas. 

The online feud ignited when a Twitter user mentioned Meta's rumored product that is said to rival Twitter, sparking a series of exchanges between the influential figures. 

Musk did not hold back in responding to a tweet stating, "I'm sure Earth can't wait to be exclusively under Zuck's thumb with no other options. At least it will be 'sane.' I was worried there for a moment ?."

Another user jokingly cautioned him about Zuckerberg's martial arts skills as the online exchange continued, saying, "Better be careful, @elonmusk. I heard he does the jujitsu now ?????????." 

At this point, the 51-year-old issued the challenge, writing, "I'm up for a cage match if he is, lol." In response to Musk's suggestion, the computer programmer wasted no time joining the playful challenge. 

Zuckerberg shared a screenshot of their Twitter exchange on his Instagram Story, boldly stating, "Send me location" in large letters. The Boring Company founder then indicated that the "Vegas Octagon" would be ideal for their hypothetical showdown.

While the seriousness of the proposed cage fight between the duo remains uncertain, a statement from a Meta spokesperson reads, "The story speaks for itself."

Andrew Tate Embroiled In Yet Another Legal Battle

Following his arrest in December 2022 and subsequent imprisonment in a Romanian jail, the controversial individual has now faced additional grave allegations. The social media personality faces charges of rape, human trafficking, and involvement in a criminal gang for the exploitation of women.

In a significant turn of events, prosecutors have also brought charges against Tate's brother, Tristan, and two Romanian women. The Blast reported that Romania's anti-organized crime agency officially filed the charges in a Bucharest court.

The Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism released a statement stating that the four defendants, including Andrew and Tristan Tate, allegedly formed a criminal group in 2021 "to commit the crime of human trafficking."

The alleged criminal group, operating in Romania, the United States, and Britain, is facing accusations of luring and transporting seven female victims. These women were supposedly subjected to sexual exploitation and physical violence. 

Additionally, one of the defendants is accused explicitly of committing rape on two separate occasions in March 2022. However, the 36-year-old, residing in Romania since 2017, denied the charges, claiming that the case is a political conspiracy to silence him.

In a statement, his spokesperson, Mateea Petrescu, expressed the firm determination of Andrew and his brother to "demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation." With the court hearing in Bucharest scheduled for Wednesday morning, all eyes were focused on the outcome of the legal proceedings, eagerly awaiting the case's resolution.

It was also revealed that despite their best efforts, the legal team representing the brothers was unsuccessful in appealing the multiple extensions to their prison sentences.

During his court appearance on March 14th, Andrew had held onto the hope of a favorable outcome that would result in his release. However, his bail plea was dismissed by the court in Bucharest, shattering his aspirations of immediate freedom.
