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

Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan are escorted by police officers outside the headquarters of the Court of Appeal in Bucharest, Romania, last Tuesday.
Tate responded to the clip on Twitter, writing: “When my innocence is proven. I look forward to helping create the greatest episode of South Park ever.”
The final episode, titled Spring Break, which aired last night in the US, shows Father Randy Marsh trying to spend his vacation drinking and partying.
During the episode, Randy tries to show his son and his “nerdy” friend “what a real party is”.
Drawing a gun, the character with a beard and sunglasses named “Alonzo Vinsky” begins to get angry at the father before speaking to him.
Randy tells the character, “Look, I’m just trying to fight the messages the liberal left is giving young men about their male instincts being toxic.”
“I’m trying to show my son and his little friend what a real party is because society wants them to be ashamed of their masculine nature.”
Looking puzzled with a cigar between his lips and a revolver in his hand, the bearded figure replies, “Do you want a real party?” Before saying, “I’m going to call some friends.”
In a later scene, Alonzo Finsky is ordered to freeze by the police as they storm a party.
Someone shouts: “This is Alonzo Vinci, the Romanian drug dealer.”
He is then shown participating in a gunfight.

Randy says to the character: “Look, I’m just trying to fight the messages the liberal left is giving young men about their male instincts being toxic.”
South Park broadcasts a disclaimer after each episode, stating, “All characters and events in this show – even those based on real people – are completely fictional. All celebrity voices are impersonated… badly.”
Adult animation has a history of targeting famous personalities and celebrities such as Ben Affleck, Britney Spears, and Tom Cruise.
Recently, I targeted The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in an episode depicting “The Prince and Princess of Canada” – a young royal couple loudly pleading for privacy while drawing attention to themselves.
In one episode, a red-headed prince and his wife are seen promoting the prince’s book – wag – whose cover strongly resembles Prince Harry Spear’s diary.
Challenged about their motives, the couple stormed out during a TV show, before moving to South Park, where the princess declared, “If we moved here, people would think we were really serious about wanting to be normal.”
