Former kickboxer and social media personality Andrew Tate is well-known for his controversial opinions. His latest take concerns climate change and Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
Tate took to Twitter to mention the number of cars he possesses and proceeded to list them along with their powerful engines. His prized Bugatti and Ferraris were featured in the tweet that demanded Thunberg's email address so Tate could furnish her with further details.
Attaching an image pouring gasoline into his Bugatti, he assured that he had up to 33 vehicles that pollute. "This is just the beginning. Please provide your email address so I can send you a full list of my car collection and their respective huge releases," she requested of the young woman.
In addition, it also made fun of the speech he gave at the United Nations, where he criticized world leaders for being to blame for climate change. He has wanted to point out himself as one of those who has polluted the most in recent years.
However, it seems that Thunberg has not felt very threatened by his 'attack' and has responded loud and clear to the influencer: "Yes, please enlighten me. Email me at email@example.com". An email address that translates to 'small penis power' and 'get a life'.
And no, it's not an innocent. In barely an hour, her and her response has garnered far more interactions than Tate's initial tweet, plus thousands upon thousands of mocking comments.
"Global temperature has dropped leaving Tate absolutely freezing ," one user replied. "Imagine being so in need of attention that you find the need to attack a young woman on social media because she believes in a better world," others have complained.

The Daily Mirror interviewed the two brothers in March. Tristan said in the interview that the business was a "big scam to sell sad stories to desperate men."
In 2016, after joining season 17 of Big Brother, Tate was forcibly removed from the pageant after a violent video of the athlete was shared on Facebook. This short clip showed Tate beating a woman with a belt, prompting Tate's immediate eviction from the house.
This would be just the first of many controversies to follow Tate over the years. Although the woman in the video has clarified that Tate's actions were consensual, his actions only sullied his name, drawing even more negative press as time went on.
