South Park mocks influencer Andrew Tate in episode featuring a gun-toting ‘toxic masculinity coach’ who cops accuse of being a ‘Romanian sex trafficker’
- A bearded gun-toting and cigar-smoking character appears in the latest episode
- Tate is currently being held in a Bucharest jail on suspicion of human trafficking
Andrew Tate has become the latest target of South Park parody in an episode featuring a ‘Romanian sex trafficker’ and ‘toxic masculinity coach’.
A bearded gun-toting and cigar-smoking character that appears to show a resemblance to Tate is depicted in the latest episode of the adult cartoon.
Tate is currently being held in a Bucharest jail with his brother Tristan and two Romanian women on suspicion of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized crime group to exploit victims.
He was initially arrested on December 29 last year, before being repeatedly denied bail as Romanian officials investigate his alleged trafficking operation and exploitation of women.
In recent years, the self-proclaimed misogynist has gained a significant following online where he has been accused of sexism and encouraging violence against women.

Tate has responded to the clip on Twitter, writing: ‘When I will be proven innocent. I look forward to help create the greatest South Park episode of all time.’
The latest episode entitled ‘Spring Break’, which aired last night in the U.S., shows dad Randy Marsh as he attempts to spend his holiday drinking and partying.
During the episode, Randy tries to show his ‘nerdy’ son and friend ‘what a real party is’.
Drawing a gun, the character with a beard and sunglasses named ‘Alonzo Fineski’ starts to get angry with the dad before talking to him.
Randy tells the character: ‘Look, I’m just trying to combat the messages that the liberal left is putting out to young men about their male instincts being toxic.
‘I’m trying to show my son and his nerdy little friend what a real party is because society wants them to be ashamed of their masculine natures.’
Looking rather puzzled with a cigar between his lips and a gun in hand, the bearded character responds: ‘You want real party?’ before saying: ‘I will call some friends.’
In a later scene ‘Alonzo Fineski’ is told to freeze by police as they burst into a party.
One shouts: ‘That’s Alonzo Fineski, the Romanian sеx trafficker.’
He is then shown engaging in a gunfight.
Tate responded to the clip on Twitter earlier on Friday morning

South Park airs disclaimers after each episode, stating: ‘All characters and events in this show—even those based on real people—are entirely fictional. All celebrity voices are impersonated… poorly.’
The adult cartoon has a history of taking aim at well-known personalities and celebrities like Ben Affleck, Brittney Spears, and Tom Cruise.
Recently it took aim at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in an episode depicting the ‘Prince and Princess of Canada’ – a young royal couple who loudly beg for privacy while drawing attention to themselves.
In one episode, a red-headed prince and his wife, are seen promoting the prince’s book – Waaagh – the cover of which strongly resembles Prince Harry’s memoir Spare.
The couple storm off during a TV show after being challenged about their motives, before moving to South Park, with the princess declaring: ‘If we moved here, people would think we’re really serious about wanting to be normal.’
