The former kickboxing fighter, who was dedicated to spreading misogynistic messages to his millions of followers, was expelled from several platforms in the past for his hate speech, on Twitter he managed to return when Elon Musk bought it. Tate had come back to the news because of the forceful response he received from environmental activist Greta Thunberg. He sent him a message from her to tell her about her huge fuel expense for the cars she has: “Hello, Greta Thunberg. I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a 16 8.0L turbo. My two Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s. It’s just the beginning. Please give me an email address so I can send you a complete list of my collection of cars and their huge emissions.”

To which she replied: “Yes, please enlighten me. Send me all the information to energíadepenepequeñ[email protected]ú”. Thunberg’s tweet has more than three million ‘likes’.

The Tate brothers, British nationals, have been under investigation since April. His lawyer has confirmed the arrest.

The investigators’ statement reports that six women allegedly sexually exploited by the criminal organization have been identified. “The four suspects would have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting and exploiting women, forcing them to create pornographic content on paid web pages,” they point out. They had the objective “of obtaining significant financial benefits”.

According to the investigators, the victims were lured by the two “British citizens”, who wanted to start a love relationship with them and then take them to a house in the outskirts of Bucharest where they were forcibly detained and exploited.

Thunberg’s response to the arrest

Tate responded to Thunberg’s message again with a video of her sitting in a room and smoking a cigar. “Releasing greenhouse gases”, she would say when expelling smoke when smoking. “I am angry with Greta. please bring me pizza [a una persona fuera de cámara], but make sure the cardboard hasn’t been recycled,” he says. The pizza box is from the Jerry’s Pizza chain, an indication that he was in Romania at the time.

The Swedish activist has reacted with irony to the arrest, alluding to the clue that would have been key in her arrest, indicating that she was in Romania: “This is what happens when you don’t recycle pizza boxes.”
