Climate activist Greta Thunberg has slapped down controversial influencer Andrew Tate after he boasted about owning numerous supercars.
The teenager turned the tables on the 36-year-old former kickboxer when he tried to troll her on Twitter about the “enormous emissions” he was responsible for.
Thunberg, 19, questioned his confidence and suggested he had “small d**k energy” when he listed some of the 33 cars he owned and asked for her email to send a list.
She tweeted: “yes, please do enlighten me. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Tate had initially tried to rile up Thunberg by listing some of his supercars and tagging her in a mocking video.
He tweeted: “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.”
But Swedish activist Thunberg, who has previously embarrassed president Donald Trump on Twitter, responded with a putdown of her own, questioning his ego.
Tate has gained notoriety online for misogynistic comments about women, including suggesting they “bear some responsibility” if they are assaulted.
This comment led to him being banned from Twitter before he was recently reinstated by the social media firm’s new owner Elon Musk.
Tate has denied he holds misogynistic views and accused his critics of “twisting facts”.
Videos of and about Tate, often posted and re-shared by others, have become popular on both YouTube and TikTok, with more than 13 billion views on TikTok alone.
In August, YouTube permanently banned Tate for breaching its rules on hate speech.
The Google-owned video platform said channels associated with Tate had been removed for breaching its terms of service – a decision that followed similar moves by Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
TikTok previously said it had been removing videos and accounts linked to Tate and would continue to do so.
Several campaign groups have criticised Tate for his views and warned he was a danger to young men and boys who see his content online, urging the various platforms on which he is active to remove him.
