Andrew Tate has responded after he became the latest subject of ridicule on South Park.
The controversial influencer was released from prison yesterday (31 March), having spent months behind bars in Romania on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone's animated comedy series roasted 'toxic masculinity coach' Tate in typical fashion, and the 36-year-old has now offered his take on it.
In a tweet shared with his 5.6 million followers, Tate said: "When I will be proven innocent. I look forward to help create the greatest South Park episode of all time."
And in another tweet, he added: "I met one of my lifelong heroes, Randy Marsh."
Tate and his brother Tristan were detained along with two Romanian women - Georgiana Naghel and Luana Radu - in late December in Bucharest.
But yesterday the divisive internet personality won an appeal to replace his detention with house arrest.
Speaking following his release, Tate said: "I have no resentment in my heart for the country of Romania, or for anybody else.
"I just believe in the truth. So I believe in God and I think that the fire of truth will eventually destroy all lies and anybody who lies in a long enough timeframe will feel the sting of regret.
"I truly believe that justice will be served in the end. There is 0 percent chance of me being found guilty of something I have not done. I maintain my absolute innocent innocence.
"I think most people understand this and I look forward to being home, so thank you so much."
He added: "When I was in jail, I did 7,417 push ups."
The Bucharest Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Tate’s appeal, which challenged a judge's decision last week to extend his arrest for a fourth time, Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson for Romania’s anti-organised crime agency, DIICOT, said on Friday.
He will now remain under house arrest until 29 April, the spokesperson said. No one has yet been formally charged.
The professional kickboxer who has resided in Romania since 2017 was previously banned from various social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.
Throughout, Tate has claimed Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and alleged their case is a 'political' conspiracy designed to silence him.
His team have previously argued there was no need to keep him in custody in the current circumstances.
A spokesperson for the Tate brothers told MailOnline: "The court has decided to extend the Tate brothers’ preventative arrest. We have been rendered speechless by the news.
"The interaction with the judge was extremely dynamic and the brothers were offered for the first time the opportunity to present all legal guarantees that they are not a flight risk.
"They are the first ones who want light to be shed on this case. The substantial material damages they have suffered are nothing compared to the moral ones.
"Their image has been irreparably harmed and it will take years to rebuild the reputation, trust and connection with the general public."
