On Twitter on Wednesday, controversial social media celebrity Andrew Tate and environmental activist Greta Thunberg hurled insults in a conversation that quickly went viral.
Tate started the argument by tagging Thunberg in a tweet about his 33 automobiles and their pollution-causing emissions. Tate is well-known for his numerous misogynistic remarks.
He asked the 19-year-old campaigner, “Please offer your email address so I can send a detailed list of my automobile collection and their respective massive emissions.”
Thunberg responded with a stinging jab.
“Yes, enlighten me, please. She responded with a quote tweet, “Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The self-described “success coach” just responded with “How dare you?!”
Many comments delighted in the influencer’s demise.
George Conway tweeted, “This may well be the greatest tweet of all time,”
You have 33 vehicles. Greta is the owner of one Andrew Tate, a Twitter user account.
Another retorted, “If this could be twitter’s last tweet, I’d walk away with a smile,”
Tate was suspended from Twitter until he returned last month. He is well-liked by some far-right supporters and so-called incels.
He has received criticism for his comments that women should “bear responsibility” for being sexually attacked, denigrating the IQ of the entire sex, and comparing women to property.
Because of his offensive statements, he has been banned from multiple social media platforms, including Instagram and Facebook.
