Elon Musk praised activist Greta Thunberg after she hit back at controversial influencer Andrew Tate .
The Tesla CEO tweeted that “the sheer amount of brand recognition Greta has achieved in just a few short years is staggering,” in response to a satirical Babylon Bee article titled ” Greta Thunberg ‘s new thermostat frowns at you when you turn on the heat .” “.
“I think she’s great, really,” Musk added.

Greta wins over the internet
Elon Musk ‘s comments come as part of Thunberg’s response to Tate’s teasing about her car collection earlier this week.
The influencer, who has made misogynistic comments online, asked Thunberg for her email address so she could send her a “full list” of her 33 cars “and their respective huge emissions.”

Thunberg’s tweet has had 3.9 million likes, making it one of the most popular ever.
An answer that landed him in jail
Tate and his brother Tristan were arrested in Romania on Thursday in connection with allegations of human trafficking and rape, which they deny. They and two Romanians will be detained for 30 days.
Musk’s comments could be seen as a reaction to a suggestion this week by economist Paul Krugman that Musk’s turn to the political right has put him at odds with Tesla’s main customer base of wealthy and environmentally conscious liberals.
