Tate became the a huge focus on Twitter earlier this week after he tweeted at environmental activist Greta Thunberg, mocking her efforts by listing off his collection of cars.
Thunberg responded with a burn of her own, writing, “yes, please do enlighten me. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org” and Twitter went wild.
