The gloves are off.
Noted climate activist Greta Thunberg and former lightweight kickboxing champion Andrew Tate are engaged in a Twitter war — and the internet is swallowing it up.
The skirmish started yesterday Tate tweeted a picture of herself next to his gas-guzzling Bugatti. While tagging Thunberg, he boasted about his 33 cars, writing, “Please provide your email address so I can send a full list of my car collection and their respective massive releases.”
Tate was banned from Twitter in 2017, but reinstated last month.
Hey @Greta Thunberg
I have 33 cars.
My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo.
My TWO Ferrari 812 competitive have 6.5L v12s.
This is just the beginning.
Please provide your email address so that I can send a full list of my car collection and their respective massive emissions. pic.twitter.com/ehhOBDQyYU

Thunberg responded the next day with a tweet questioning Tate’s manhood. She wrote, “Yes, please inform me,” and shared the fake email address: “email@example.com.”

Andrew Tate and his brother were arrested in Romania earlier today on charges of sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape, according to the Romanian News Center Liberatea.
According to the Daily mailtoday’s arrest was triggered by Tate’s tweet to Thunberg earlier this week, who may have tipped off his location.
Police raided his villa in April where the brothers allegedly held an American and Romanian woman against their will.
A video of the arrest was posted on Twitter.

After retiring from kickboxing, Tate made millions from various ventures, including reportedly setting up a webcam company in Romania.
Tate has previously told his followers that he moved to Romania because police there were less likely to press charges of sexual assault against him.
This is a breaking story.
