Greta Thunberg has completely owned the controversial online personality, Andrew Tate with a single tweet which unfolded into the arrest of the man.
Earlier this week, he tweeted Greta Thunberg, asking for her comments on the carbon emissions of his 33 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.
“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.”
Greta was quick to respond:
“yes, please do enlighten me. email me at smalld*[email protected].” [sic]
This tweet quickly became one of the 25 most liked tweets on the social media site with 3.3 million likes at the time of writing this article, prompting a response from Tate.
He waxed lyrical with a cigar in front of a couple of pizza boxes for a few minutes, not realising that the pizza boxes gave away his location within Romania, and now both Tate and his brother Tristan have been detained as part of a human trafficking and rape investigation. In fact, he was detained within 24 hours of posting the video to Twitter.
Greta tweeted her final tweet about the scenario: “This is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes.”
Both brothers will be detained for 24 hours after six women have claimed to be sexually exploited by the men. The video of both men being taken by the Romanian police has also since gone viral.
Tate’s actions in this have been deemed “cringe”, with many now naming him the “Dollar shop Vin Diesel”.
