Greta Thunberg delivered another blow to Andrew Tate in the Twitter spat that exploded this week, taunting him after his arrest in Romania.

Following the news, the controversial influencer had been detained thursdaythe climate activist said in a post: “This is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes.”

Ms Thunberg was referring to the video Tate posted of him sitting at a desk wearing a dressing gown and smoking a cigar, in which he told her to “take a life”.

In the footage, Tate says to someone off camera, “Please bring me a pizza and make sure these boxes don’t get recycled.”

He then received a stack of boxes that appear to be branded with the Romanian chain Jerry’s Pizza.

With Tate’s arrest coming soon after the video, social media buzzed with the theory that the pizza boxes revealed his location to police.

The theory spawned the trending hashtag #PizzaTate, although others pointed out that Tate had posted information about his location in Romania before the row.

Romanian authorities have not commented on the video or whether the pizza boxes played a role in their investigation.

Tate and his brother Tristan have been under investigation since April alongside two Romanian nationals.

His home in the capital, Bucharest, was reportedly raided, with a lawyer for the brothers confirming their detention.

“The four suspects (…) appear to have created an organized criminal group with the aim of recruiting, harboring and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content intended to be viewed on specialized sites for a fee,” said Romanian prosecutors.

The row between Tate and Ms Thunberg started when he shared a photo on Twitter of himself standing next to a Bugatti and saying he owned 33 cars.

“Please provide your email address so I can send a full list of my car collection and their respective huge shows,” he tweeted, tagging Ms Thunberg.

The Swedish activist responded by saying: “Yes, please enlighten me”, adding a fake email address mocking him and ending with the words “getalife.com”.
