Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, has been arrested by paramilitary officers outside the High Court in Islamabad. Khan was appearing in court on corruption charges that he claims are politically motivated. Reports state that he was detained by forces in armoured personnel carriers after entering the court compound.
Many Pakistani celebrities have come out in support of Khan, angered by the arrest. However, given that the issue was basically breaking news globally, an unlikely crossover has taken place. Andrew Tate has come out and tweeted in favour of Khan.
“All the good guys go to jail,” stated Tate, responding to a tweet that had shared the news.
All the good guys go to jail.

Unsurprisingly, many came to support Tate’s statement, while also inadvertently speaking up for the former premier of Pakistan. “The matrix wants everyone with influence jailed,” tweeted one user.
“He is [a] Top G like you,” wrote another user of the microblogging site.
However, there were also those who were quite taken aback by Tate’s support, given his recent arrest and the circumstances surrounding it. “Girl, this man literally went to jail for human trafficking. What the hell is he talking about?” questioned one Twitter user.
One user seemed to find the whole thing hilarious. “MashAllah, Andrew Tate joins PTI,” they tweeted, with a morphed image of Khan and Tate.
Tate, a former professional kickboxer and online personality, was arrested in Romania on allegations of human trafficking, rape, and forming an organized criminal group, reports The New York Times. He was detained along with his brother Tristan and two Romanian women. They were released from jail and placed under house arrest while the investigation continues.
Some of the allegations against Tate include promoting misogynistic views, making offensive comments about women, and portraying men as victims of feminism and false rape accusations. He has denied the allegations.
