Internet controversy-prone persona Twitter user Andrew Tate has returned, writing in favour of the platform’s new owner Elon Musk, but his return has caused some online scepticism.
A compilation of climate activist Greta Thunberg‘s well-known speech to the United Nations was published on the platform on Monday by former kickboxer Tate with the message, “Go to school.” It appeared to be mockery.
The 2019 UN Climate Action Summit speech by Ms. Thunberg is blended with fast vehicles, luxury flights, and cigar smoking in the film.
The video shows Tate chuckling in reaction to Ms. Thunberg’s remarks about how aspirations are stolen as she makes her impassioned appeal for change.
The Swedish activist gained notoriety in 2018 after organising school strikes and taking on the role of the movement’s spokesperson for young people taking climate action.
Tate, 35, has also gained notoriety online, but in 2017 Twitter banned him for breaking its terms of service by stating that rape victims “carry some blame.”

He was expelled from YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok in August of this year for breaking the networks’ hate speech standards.
He has since returned to Twitter, boasting that he is the “final super hero of masculinity” and promising to save everyone.
It is astounding that Twitter has lifted the ban, according to Allan Ball, national director of White Ribbon Australia, a group that works to end male violence against women and children, who was speaking to The Feed.
Concerned about the effects of making similar remarks, he stated, “I am anxious about what message this is sending, especially to Australian males and young guys.”
Tate recently posted on social media that he was travelling to Twitter’s headquarters to inform Elon Musk that “he’s a legend.”
While some of his followers are happy to see him back on Twitter, others are dubious about it.
Tate has a history of divisive internet statements, and his writing has drawn criticism.
What White Ribbon Australia does know is that young guys are particularly interested in what he has to say, according to Mr. Ball, who spoke to The Feed.
