Elon Musk mocked influential arsonist and suspected sex trafficker Andrew Tate on Saturday after the billionaire Tesla founder praised Greta Thunberg.
“Sometimes it’s better to make pizza at home,” the Twitter boss. tweeted on New Year’s Eve.
The dig referenced the theory that Tate, 36, was discovered hiding in Romania after he published a video holding a pizza box from Jerry’s Pizza, a popular chain in the country.
Tate had tried to use the box as a prop to applaud the 19-year-old eco warrior, with whom he had had a viral Twitter spat with just a day earlier.
The self-proclaimed misogynist told an off-screen person in the clip to make sure not to recycle the boxes, as he told Thunberg that she was a “slave to the matrix.”
Tate was arrested on Thursday the video on charges of kidnapping and rape was released shortly after. He and his brother had allegedly formed an organized crime group and “sexually exploited” women and forced them to make pornographic films.
Musk’s New Year’s Eve tweet was the third dunk at the Tate since his arrest abroad.
On Friday, Musk, 51, tweeted that Thunberg was “great” for taking on the internet bully.
“The sheer amount of brand recognition Greta has achieved in just a few short years is amazing. I think she’s great tbh.” musk said from the Swedish activist in response to a satirical site post about Babylon Bee’s Thunberg-themed thermostat, which “frowns at you when you turn on the heating”.
Musk is the founder of Tesla, a maker of electric cars.
musk too tweeted a picture from the movie “The Matrix” referencing Tate’s doomed video: “What if I told you that the only way to escape the Matrix is to unlearn everything you’ve been taught and rebuild your entire belief system based on the analysis and critical thinking.
Musk shot down rumors that he and Tate were friends on Friday, stating they never met.
Musk also said that he had never been in a Halloween party in Romania.
