Greta Thunberg has been praised for hitting back at Andrew Tate after he gloated about having 33 cars with “enormous emissions”.
The 36-year-old former professional kickboxer turned controversial media personality and self-professed misogynist took to social media yesterday to ask the prominent 19-year-old Swedish environmental activist to provide him with her email address so that he could send her “a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions”.
Tate – who has grabbed headlines several times this year due to his misogynistic comments, which have previously seen banned from Twitter, Instagram, and most notably TikTok – gloated that he currently has 33 cars and that “this is just the start” of his growing collection.
In a tweet direct to Thunberg, Tate wrote: “Hello @GretaThunberg. I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L 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.”
Tate – who has previously claimed that women should ‘shut the f**k up, have kids, sit at home, be quiet and make coffee’ – shared a picture of himself filling one of his Bugatti supercars with fuel alongside his tweet demanding Thunberg’s contact details.
But Thunberg was having none of it.
The teenage activist, who has been named on of the 100 most influential people in the world, and has received nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize for the past four years in a row, hit back at Tate and told him to “get a life” in what is a now-viral tweet.
In response to Tate’s demand for her email address, Thunberg wrote on Twitter this morning: “Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at smalld**[email protected],” – and it’s fair, people have been absolutely loving it.
Thunberg’s tweet response has already racked up over 53,000 retweets and nearly 220,000 likes in less than an hour since it was posted.
Fans have been praising Thunberg for her “amazing” response.
“Hello. Yes, police please. I’d like to report the murder of Andrew Tate,” one person wrote, while another person called it “a late entry for most devastating ratio of the year,” and a third said they “did not see that coming”.
Another fan said: “Who’d have thought 2022 Twitter would peak so late in the day?,” while another called the response “beautiful”.
“And there was me thinking 2022 had peaked,” one fan exclaimed.
“Immense burn. Thoughts and prayers to Tate’s manhood, or lack thereof. Wake up men, this is not the hero you are looking for,” domestic abuse campaigner David Challen wrote.
Writer Ian Boothby added: “If more historical figures had Twitter back in their time, there’d be a lot more quotes like this in books.”
Watch Ross from The 1975 pull a few pints at Bunny Jackson’s after sold-out Gorilla gig
Following his band’s sellout intimate gig at Gorilla, Ross from The 1975 decided to celebrate like any true rockstar would: by pulling pints behind the bar at Bunny Jackson’s.
Bassist Ross MacDonald has become somewhat of a cult figure in the band of late, with countless fans swooning over him and his understated manner on stage.
He comes across as just a normal, down-to-earth bloke — so much in fact that he could probably slip into your local bar without anyone really noticing. Well, almost.
Yes, after The 1975 wrapped up their much-talked-about charity set for War Child on Wednesday, Ross decided to head round the corner to everyone’s favourite dive bar and surprise some Manc faces by serving up a few drinks. Because why not?
Imagine getting up to order a pint and some wings only to see Ross fromThe 1975 serving you.
The beloved bar and wing spot on Jack Rosenthal Street is packed to the rafters most nights whether there’s a gig on or not, but with arguably one of the biggest bands in the world right now having played literally metres away at Gorilla, there were plenty of punters enjoy their usual rock-heavy playlist.
That being said, while many may have expected the Wilmslow band to come on shuffle at some point, very few of them would have been expecting to see the long-haired heart-throb himself behind the bar.
Again, so unassuming — just a tall guy in a hoody.

‘Grow up’ – Matty Healy urges Oasis to ‘stop messing around’ and reunite
Matty Healy has urged Oasis to “stop messing around” and get back together in a new interview.
In a video that’s already amassing tens of thousands of views online, the frontman of Manchester-based indie pop rock band, The 1975, has made his thoughts on the feuding Gallagher brothers known during an in-depth interview with on Q with Tom Power from Canadian broadcaster CBC this week.
During the interview, the 33-year-old singer touched on everything from the process of making the band’s latest record, 2022’s critically-acclaimed Being Funny in a Foreign Language, to his onstage antics, and why he’s decided to embrace sincerity and being earnest – but that doesn’t seem to be the main take-away of Manchester music fans.
It’s his opinion of iconic Britpop band Oasis that’s really got people talking.
In what he called a “public service announcement”, Healy claimed Oasis are still “the coolest band in the world” but questioned what the Gallagher brothers are playing at by continuing to fight with each other after all these years.
Telling them to “grow up”, Healy urged Liam and Noel to “get back together and stop messing around”.
Healy told the interviewer: “What are Oasis doing? Can you imagine being in potentially, right now, still the coolest band in the world, and not doing it because you’re in a mard with your brother? I can deal with them dressing like they’re in their twenties but being in their fifties, but acting like they’re in their twenties?
“They need to grow up.”
Healy continued: “Stop marding. They’re men of the people, and they’re sat around in, like, Little Venice and Highgate crying over an argument with their brother.
“Grow up. Headline Glastonbury. Have a good time. Have a laugh.”
The Wilmslow lad also took a second to speak on the popularity of both the Gallagher brothers’ post-Oasis solo projects and endeavours, and claimed fans aren’t as interested in seeing Liam Gallagher or Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds live as they would be going to an Oasis gig.
“There is not one person going to a High Flying Birds gig or a Liam Gallagher gig that would not rather be at an Oasis gig,” Healy claimed.
“There is not one person.
“Not one person is there going, ‘you know what? I loved Definitely Maybe, but my favourite thing is f***ing Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’.”
