Tate reportedly complained that he couldn’t shave his head because disposable razors are not allowed in the prison and demanded that a barber be brought in, which was turned down.
Tate and his brother also allegedly asked prison officials to buy them a PlayStation so they could play games in the cell they share.
When the British-American citizen demanded to know where the video game machine was, officials allegedly told him that in custody, “prisoners don’t play, they pray.”
The divisive influencer will now be held for another 30 days, according to Ramona Bolla, a spokesman for the Romanian anti-organized crime organization DIICOT.
Bolla said prosecutors also won an appeal on Monday against a court’s decision last week to place two women held in the case under house arrest instead of full custody. None of the four has yet been formally charged.
It is the third separate appeal the brothers have lost against decisions to extend their detention while the investigation is ongoing. All four will now remain in prison at least until March 29, Bolla said
Tate, known for his misogynistic views and 5.2 million Twitter followers, arrived at the appeals court in Bucharest on Monday handcuffed to his brother.
In a document explaining an earlier decision to keep them in prison, the judge took into account the “particular danger of the defendants” and their ability to identify victims “with heightened vulnerability, seeking better life chances” .
Tate, who has been living in Romania since 2017, was previously banned from several social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.
He has repeatedly claimed that Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and claimed that their case is a “political” conspiracy designed to silence him.
After the court ruled on Monday, a message appeared on Tate’s Twitter account, saying: ‘They are using lies to keep me in here. But you can’t hide the sun forever.’
DIICOT said in a statement following their December arrests that it had identified six victims in the human trafficking case who suffered “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” and were sexually exploited by members of the alleged crime group.

The agency said victims were lured with pretenses of love and later intimidated, placed under surveillance and subjected to other control tactics while coerced into committing pornographic acts for the crime group’s financial gain.
Last month, Romanian authorities descended on a site near Bucharest associated with the Tate brothers and towed away a fleet of luxury cars, including a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari and a Porsche.
They reported seizing assets estimated at £3.24 million.
Prosecutors have said that if they can prove that the owners of the cars made money from illegal activities such as human trafficking, the assets would be used to cover the costs of the investigation and compensate victims.
Tate also unsuccessfully appealed the asset seizure.
