Earlier this morning, environmental activist started trending. Curious because I have not seen what she’s been up to for a while, I clicked on it. And damn, to say I was shocked, pleasantly so, would be an understatement.
For whatever reason, Andrew Tate had the big brain idea to tag Greta Thunberg in a post on twitter so that he could brag about the amount of cars he owns and so that he can brag about “their respective enormous emissions.”
For those who are unfamiliar with Andrew Tate, he is an influencer on social media who creates content for men who feel “left out” and “disenfranchised” by the current political climate, or, in other words, just another influencer who became a cog in the online alt-right pipeline for teenage boys and young adult men.
Of course, Greta Thunberg clapped back at him, but not in the way one might think. Instead of wasting her time on a man with the amount of audacity that would rival the amount of tourists flooding in to New York City to see the Rockefeller Tree lit up, Thunberg responding very simply with, “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at email@example.com.”
I personally think this should be the blueprint for grifters such as this going forward. What do you think?
