Elon Musk poked fun at firebrand influencer and alleged sex trafficker Andrew Tate on Saturday — after the billionaire Tesla founder praised Greta Thunberg.
“Sometimes it’s just better to make pizza at home,” the Twitter boss tweeted on New Year’s Eve.
The dig invokes the theory that Tate, 36, was discovered hiding in Romania after posting video holding a pizza box from the nationally popular Jerry’s Pizza chain.
Tate had tried to use the box as a prop to clap back at the 19-year-old eco-warrior, with whom he had been embroiled in a viral Twitter spat just a day earlier.
Tate was arrested Thursday shortly after the video was released on allegations of kidnapping and rape. He and his brother 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 Tate’s third jab since his arrest overseas.
On Friday, Musk, 51, tweeted that Thunberg was “cool” for taking on the Internet provocateur.
“The sheer brand awareness that Greta has achieved in just a few years is astounding. I think she’s cool tbh,” Musk said to the Swedish activist in response to a post by satirical site Babylon Bee’s Thunberg-themed thermostat that “frowns you when you turn up the heat.”
Musk is the founder of Tesla, an electric car maker.
Musk too tweet an image 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 abandon everything you’ve been taught and rebuild your entire belief system based on of critical thought and analysis.’
Musk denied rumors that he and Tate were friends on Friday, claiming the two had never met.
Musk also said he had never been on Halloween party in Romania.
