Greta Thunberg has an unlikely new supporter, none other than Elon Musk.
On Wednesday (28 December), Tate, 39, decided to tease Thunberg by bragging about the pollution caused by his collection of cars.
“Hello @GretaThunberg I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo. My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s," he tweeted.
"This is just the start. Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions."
The youngest Time magazine person of the year recipient tweeted back: “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at smalld**[email protected]."
The former kickboxer thought it would be a good idea to film a response video to Thunberg, however the pizza boxes featured in the odd clip which he boasts he won’t recycle, have now seemingly led to police raiding his house as part of a human trafficking investigation.
On Friday (30 December), Musk responded to a satirical article posted by The Babylon Bee with the headline, “New Greta Thunberg Thermostat Scowls At You When You Turn The heat Up”.
“The sheer amount of brand awareness achieved by Greta within a few years is astounding,” Musk gushed in a tweet shared with his 124 million followers. “I think she’s cool tbh.”
Following her savage response to Tate earlier this week, Thunberg returned to the social media platform today (30 December) following Tate's arrest.
She tweeted: "This is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes."
Tate and his younger brother Tristan were taken into custody on Thursday (29 December) after seemingly revealing his location accidentally to Romanian authorities due to the pizza boxes seen in his response video on Twitter.
He is now being questioned over alleged involvement in human trafficking.
According to the Daily Mail, Romanian prosecutors believe an alleged criminal group 'sexually exploited at least six women'.
A spokesperson for Andrew Tate told the news outlet: "We cannot provide any details at the moment regarding alleged reports that they have been detained; however, Andrew and Tristan Tate have the utmost respect for the Romanian authorities and will always assist and help in any way they can.
Tate was banned from Twitter in 2017 however he returned to social media a few weeks ago after Twitter was bought by Elon Musk, who decided to revoke his ban.
