Elon Musk taunted controversial influencer Andrew Tate Saturday — after the billionaire Tesla founder praised Greta Thunberg.

The dig referenced the theory that Tate, 36, was discovered hiding out in Romania after he posted a video holding a pizza box from Jerry’s Pizza, a chain popular in the country.
Tate had attempted to use the box as a prop to clap back at the 19-year-old eco-warrior, whom he had engaged in a viral Twitter spat with just one day earlier.
Tate told an off-screen person in the clip to make sure they didn’t recycle the boxes as he told Thunberg she was a “slave of the matrix.”
Tate, often referred to as the ‘Top G’, was arrested Thursday shortly after the video was posted on kidnapping and rape charges. He and his brother had allegedly formed an organized crime group and “sexually exploited” women and forced them to make pornographic films.
On Friday, Musk, 51, tweeted that Thunberg was “cool” for taking on the internet provocateur.
