Greta Thunberg has swiftly dealt with a tweet from the shamed media personality Andrew Tate, leaving fans declaring that 2022 has "peaked" thanks to the activist's reply.
Andrew – a former kickboxer and one-time Big Brother star – started the spat by tweeting Greta to boast about the "enormous emissions" from his 33-strong super car collection.
After reeling off information about the car engines, the 36 year old asked 19 year old Greta: "Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions."
Perhaps unexpectedly, the Swedish star soon replied, retweeting Andrew's post with the scathing words: "Yes, please do enlighten me. email me at smalld**[email protected]"
Greta's tweet swiftly proved popular with fans and as of Thursday morning, the post had amassed more than 2.4 million likes and plenty of replies.
"And there was me thinking 2022 had peaked," wrote one fan.
Another added: "Whew, EPIC reply. You created quite a carbon footprint from that burn you dished out."
Andrew also couldn't resist replying again, writing: "How dare you?!" before posting a alongside the caption: "Thank you for confirming via your email address that you have a small penis @GretaThunberg.
"The world was curious. And I do agree you should get a life [red heart emoji]."
The video saw Andrew say: "I'm not actually mad at Greta, right? Because she doesn't realise that she's been programmed, she doesn't realise that she's a slave of the Matrix. She thinks she's doing good."
He then attempted to claim the many reactions to Greta's post were down to "bots".
This war of words didn't just receive attention from fans, as plenty of famous faces weighed in too.
Star Trek icon George Takei told Andrew: "This is just sad. Just fold, my man. Just fold and beg forgiveness."
"You don’t sound triggered at all. Totally normal stuff," replied another Twitter user.
"First time I've seen a kickboxer get knocked out without any thrown punches or kicks," quipped another.
Andrew's first brush with fame came when he appeared on Big Brother in 2016. In the years since, he has become an internet personality, sharing content including videos promoting violence against women.
His comments saw him labelled the "king of toxic masculinity" and banned from platforms including TikTok, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – though the latter recently reinstated his account.
He also ran the now-defunct 'Hustler's University', a service offering paid members advice on cryptocurrency. The business shut down this month amid pyramid scheme accusations.
