Greta Thunberg hits back at Andrew Tate in viral Twitter exchange
British boxer Andrew Tate sparked controversy on Twitter when he attacked Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. In a tweet, Tate boasted about his collection of high-emitting cars and challenged Thunberg to provide her email address so he could send her a list of his collection. The tweet was seen as an attempt to mock Thunberg’s activism and her speech at the United Nations calling out world leaders for their inaction on climate change.
In response, Thunberg hit back with a tweet that quickly went viral, writing, “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at email@example.com.” The tweet sparked a backlash against Tate, with the hashtag #IStandWithGreta trending globally as users expressed their support for Thunberg and condemnation of Tate’s comments.
Andrew Tate is a British boxer and self-proclaimed “pick-up artist” who has gained notoriety for his controversial views and behavior on social media. He was banned from Twitter in 2017 but was recently reinstated on the platform.
Greta Thunberg is a Swedish climate activist who has gained international recognition for her activism and efforts to raise awareness about the dangers of climate change. She rose to prominence in 2018 when, at the age of 15, she started protesting outside the Swedish parliament to demand stronger action on climate change. Since then, she has become a leading figure in the global youth climate movement and has addressed world leaders at the United Nations and other international forums.
