Climate Denying Misogynist Finds Out – Don’t Mess with Greta

December 29, 2022

One of the most epic examples of a social media self-own ever.

Toxic internet “influencer” Andrew Tate made an insulting reference to Greta Thunberg, the 19 year old Swedish climate activist, taunting her about his fleet of cars and enormous greenhouse emissions.
Her epic response drew millions of likes and retweets.
He didn’t know when to shut up, and responded with a childishly immature video – which featured some pizza boxes that lead police, who had been looking for him, to pick him up on human trafficking charges.

Greta remains a legend.

Leading Britain’s Conversation:

The self-styled misogynist internet celebrity Andrew Tate has reportedly been arrested in Romania on human trafficking charges.

British-American Tate, 36, has amassed a huge following of young men via Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.

He and brother Tristan were arrested in Bucharest and will be detained for 24 hours, according to Romanian newspaper Gândul.

It reported that the US Embassy received a complaint that a woman with American citizenship was being held at their home without consent.

A former policewoman also accused of involvement in the alleged trafficking has also been arrested on the same charges.

Former Big Brother contestant Tate has almost 3.5 million Twitter followers.

He recently got into a social media spat with climate activist Greta Thunberg.

After bragging about the carbon emissions of his supercars, Thunberg replied that Tate had “small d*** energy”.

Her roast got almost three million likes.

Tate has gained further notoriety online for a number of comments about women, including suggesting that they “bear some responsibility” for being assaulted – an incident for which he was banned from Twitter.

A number of campaign groups have criticised Mr Tate for his views and warned he was a danger to young men and boys who see his content online, urging the various platforms on which he is active to remove him.

Domestic abuse charities have called his content “extreme misogyny”.

n one YouTube video, Tate described himself as “absolutely a misogynist”. 

He said: “I’m a realist and when you’re a realist you’re sexist. There’s no way you can be rooted in reality and not be sexist.”

In another clip he said: “I will state right now that I am absolutely sexist, I am absolutely a misogynist and I have f*** you money so I’ll say what I want. […] There is no way you can be rooted in reality and not be sexist.”

Videos of and about Mr Tate have also become popular on both YouTube and TikTok – videos using a hashtag of his name have been viewed more than 13 billion times on TikTok alone.

In a statement, a TikTok spokesman said: “Misogyny is a hateful ideology that is not tolerated on TikTok. We’ve been removing violative videos and accounts for weeks, and we welcome the news that other platforms are also taking action against this individual.”

UPDATE:

Following the communique no. 1 of 12.04.2022 and the interest shown by media representatives, the Office of Information and Public Relations within the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism is empowered to bring the following to the attention of public opinion:

On 29.12.2022, the prosecutors of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism – Central Structure together with police officers from the Bucharest Organized Crime Brigade implemented 5 home search warrants in a case in which investigations under the aspect of committing the crimes of constituting an organized criminal group, human trafficking and rape.
In the case it was noted that, at the beginning of 2021, 4 suspects (two British citizens and two Romanian citizens) constituted an organized criminal group with a view to committing crimes on the territory of Romania, but also of other countries, such as the United States of America and Great Britain, of the crime of human trafficking.
Victims were recruited by British citizens by misrepresenting their intention to enter into a marriage/cohabitation relationship and the existence of genuine feelings of love (the loverboy method). They were later transported and housed in buildings in Ilfov county where, by exercising acts of physical violence and mental coercion (through intimidation, constant surveillance, control and invoking alleged debts), they were sexually exploited by group members by forcing them to perform demonstrations pornographic for the purpose of producing and disseminating material of such a nature through social media platforms and by submitting to the execution of a work, in a forced manner, in order to obtain important financial benefits consisting of the sums of money obtained as a result of accessing the materials by users.
So far, 6 injured persons have been identified who were sexually exploited by the organized criminal group.
With regard to the crime of rape, it was noted that, in March 2022, an injured person was forced, on two different occasions, by a suspect through the exercise of physical violence and psychological pressure to have sexual relations.
At the headquarters of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism – Central Structure, 4 people who are reasonably suspected of being involved in criminal activity were taken for questioning. Following the hearings, the prosecutors of the Directorate for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism – Central Structure ordered the 4 persons to be detained for a period of 24 hours.
The activities were also attended by police officers from the Ilfov Organized Crime Service and the Service for Combating Human Trafficking, as well as gendarmes from the Special Intervention Brigade of the Gendarmerie.
We make it clear that during the entire criminal process, the investigated persons benefit from the procedural rights and guarantees provided by the Code of Criminal Procedure, as well as the presumption of innocence.

    Random tangent: Unless AT is just running the cars while he isn’t driving them, owning all of those high-priced gas guzzlers for himself means that fewer of them are on the road. (I’m sure he lends them out to his fellow traffickers from time to time, but it looks like they’re used as props in his videos more than anything else.)

    “My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo. My two Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s.”

    In case anyone was wondering why Romania has only 1 paved road in it…
