Andrew Tate, a 35-year-old former kickboxer, reality show participant, and podcaster, calls himself an “alpha male” and “absolute misogynist” and has already been banned from social platforms such as TikTok, Facebook and Instagram due to his attacks on women. The last “victim” of Tate was supposed to be the famous eco-activist Greta Thunberg, but everything turned out the other way around.
In his Twitter, Tate decided to troll Greta. He published a photo of his Bugatti and wrote that the car has an 8-liter engine, and in total, the influencer allegedly owns 33 cars.
“Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions,” Tate added.
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.

Thunberg was unimpressed by Tate’s provocation. In her quote tweet, she wrote: “yes please, do enlighten me. email me at [email protected],” insinuating that Tate compensates for the size of his penis with the number of cars.
Greta’s reply received more than 3.3 million likes, so her tweet is already in the Top-10 by the number of likes for the entire history of the social network.
In response, Andrew Tate recorded a video in which he said he “is not mad at Thunberg”, captioning the post with the message:
Thank you for confirming via your email address that you have a small penis @GretaThunberg
The world was curious.
And I do agree you should get a life ❤️”
However, the last word in this feud of influencers came from the Romanian police, who searched Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan in the case of organized crime, human trafficking, and rape. As it turned out, the police had been investigating for some time, but couldn’t get any further because Tate was out of the country.
Thanks to Tate’s video response to Greta Thunberg, where he accidentally showed pizza boxes from a Romanian pizzeria chain, police were able to establish that the suspect had returned to Romania.
In the published statement, the Romanian Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) stated that six people had been identified as having been sexually exploited by a group of attackers.
In addition, the attackers used a so-called “lover” scheme, in which British nationals pretended to be romantically involved with victims, transported them to Romania, and then used a combination of physical violence and psychological manipulation to force the victims to create pornography. It was then sold online, bringing in money that the suspects used to buy cars, houses and cryptocurrency.

On video, shared by Romanian newspaper Gândul, Tate can be seen being escorted out of a luxury villa that appears to be the same one featured in some of his videos.
