Thunberg takes a dig at Tate. And the activist's jibe garners 2.2 million likes on Twitter. Renowned Climate activist Greta Thunberg has proven that she's not afraid to take on trolls who have a go at her online.

The 19-year-old climate activist clapped back at controversial personality Andrew Tate, who started the exchange by directing a tweet at Thunberg where he boasted about having a large collection of cars.

In his tweet, the 36-year-old Tate said that he has 33 cars that cause ''enormous emissions''. He wrote : '' Hello, Greta Thunberg. I have 33 cars, My Bugatti has a w16.8, oL quad turbo. My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s. This is just the start.

Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions.''

In her response, the teen activist quipped, ''Yes, please do enlighten me'' before asking Tate to email her at the made-up address we've censored, smalld*ckenergy [at] getalife.com.

Her response garnered 2.2 million likes at the time of writing this story. Numerous commentators showed support for Thunberg, calling her comment an ''immense burn'' and variations thereof, and also drawing references to a kickboxing match, given Tate's former career as a kickboxer.

''How dare you?'' the misogynist responded angrily.

Tate gained infamy with his intentionally provocative and often misogynist views that include comparing women to property and saying that women belong in the home. He was banned from social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and YouTube in August for violating community guidelines. 

His Twitter account was reinstated in late November after Elon Musk took over the platform, and he now has 3.4 million followers.

Tate has since responded to Thunberg's burn with a video of him smoking a cigar and mocking Thunberg's made-up email address that you have a small penis, Greta Thunberg,'' he wrote in the caption. ''The world was curious.And I do agree you should get a life.''

''I'm not actually mad at Greta because she doesn't realize that she's been programmed,'' Tate claims agitatedly in his video. He continued : ''She doesn't realize she's a slave of the matrix, she thinks she's doing good.

Someone has sat her down and convinced her to try to convince you to beg your government to tax you into poverty to prevent the sun from being hot.''

Tate's video has been largely ridiculed by fellow tweeps.
