Andrew Tate trolled by Greta, Musk and British police after his detention

Right-wing influencer Andrew Tate is being hounded by Greta Thunberg, Elon Musk and, bizarrely, British police following his arrest by Romanian authorities.

Tate, a 36-year-old British-American former kickboxer who made a huge following for himself online by adopting a somewhat comedic alpha male persona and dispensing life and relationship advice, was arrested by Romanian authorities on Friday as part of an investigation into allegations of human trafficking.

The movement against Tate closely followed a high-profile spat between Tate and Greta Thunberg, the Swedish climate activist and establishment media darling, over the carbon emissions of Tate’s car collection and which of them has a small penis.

Tate, after Thunberg advised him to email him at “[email protected]”, posted a video response arguing that the Swede, not him, had the small penis, as evidenced by the email address being his, in which he at one point received pizza and asked the supposed delivery guy to “make sure that these boxes are not recycled”.

After Tate was detained, Twitter was full of seemingly unsubstantiated claims that it was the name of the pizzeria appearing on the screen that helped authorities track him down, with Thunberg among those looking into the rumour.

“[T]This is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes”, the Swede joked.

Elon Musk, who restored Tate’s previously purged Twitter account after taking it over, also got in on the action, suggest this “[s]sometimes it’s just better to make pizza at home”.

Perhaps the most bizarre was an intervention by the British police in Essex, who tweeted this “[v]Violence against women and girls takes many forms. Is it time to #Reflect on your misogynistic and abusive behavior? with the captions #pizzatate and #pizza.

This was accompanied by a crude “How did it start/How are you doing” meme featuring a pizza box on one side and a pair of handcuffs on the other.

Why Essex Police chose to weigh in so partisanly on the spat between Sweden’s Thunberg and Romania’s Tate, especially since the latter has yet to be convicted of a crime, is unclear and suggests his priorities might be a little confused, given violent crime, sexual assault and rape are all on the rise in areas of his responsibility such as Colchester.

Romanian authorities insist the pizza boxes were not a factor in their raids on Tate, his brother Tristan and others.
