Greta Thunberg responded to Andrew Tate on Twitter after the professional kickboxer and social media gadfly tweeted at her, boasting about his collection of 33 cars.

“Hello @GretaThunberg,” Tate tweeted, tagging the 19-year-old Swedish activist. “I have 33 cars,” he added before listing the specifications of their engines.

“This is just the start,” Tate continued before saying, “Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions.”


Thunberg answered by tweeting, “Yes, please do enlighten me. email me at”

Thunberg has openly criticized famous people in the past for their hypocrisy. She previously took aim at President Joe Biden for championing green policies to achieve “net zero” by 2050. At the Youth4Climate summit in September, she stated, “This is all we hear from our so-called leaders. Words that sound great but so far have not led to action. Our hopes and ambitions drown in their empty promises.”

Tate replied to Thunberg with the following tweet:

Tate has been well-known among far-right communities for years, but he began earning mainstream attention this year after clips from his appearances on podcast episodes and Twitch streams went viral.

He attracted attention due to his extreme statements on social media that have been labeled as misogynistic. Many of his accounts have been shut down for violating content policies. In August, he was banned from Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and YouTube.

He received backlash in 2017 during the #MeToo movement when he tweeted that women should “bare some responsibility” for being sexually assaulted. Twitter had permanently suspended his account that year, but he returned to the platform last month when Elon Musk took over the platform.
