Andrew Tate, a controversial internet personality, had an argument with climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter that may have resulted in his arrest the next day.
Their internet feud began after Tate mentioned Greta in one of his tweets, prompting Thunberg to brutally insult him in response. Greta’s tweet went viral, and everyone praised her gutsy response.
In 2016, the former kickboxer began portraying his bizarre lifestyle on the internet. Since then, he has made a number of hateful and misogynistic comments in order to gain popularity among the younger generations.
He was banned from various social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, TikTok for expressing his contradictory ideology. Since Elon Musk’s takeover, he has regained access to Twitter.
Tate recently uploaded a photo of himself driving an expensive car while emitting carbon gases. This is where he mentioned Swedish climate activist Greta, as he has long believed that climate change is a scam. He also asked for Greta’s email saying ”please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions.”
I have 33 cars.
My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo.
My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s.
This is just the start.

Greta replied to Tate with a tweet where she shared an email address which is most definitely not hers. Both tweets went viral, causing quite a stir among internet users.
”yes, please do enlighten me. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org” Greta replied.
Tate did not stop after Greta’s statement; instead, he posted a video of himself wearing a robe, smoking a cigar, eating pizza, and criticizing the climate activist.
“She doesn’t realise she’s been programmed. She doesn’t realise she’s a slave of the Matrix.” Tate said in the video.
Thank you for confirming via your email address that you have a small penis @GretaThunberg
The world was curious.
