It was certainly something different to watch the sinking Andrew Tate unfold in the last few days. It all started with the former kickboxer trying to troll 19-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter for reasons known only to him, and ended with his arrest just two days later in Romania.
In fact, the twists and turns were so wild it was hard not to draw comparisons to Rian Johnson’s hugely popular series Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mysterywhich arrived on Netflix in time for the spectacle.
But first a recap. On Tuesday, Tate Thunberg unprovokedly tweeted to brag about his 33 cars. “Please include your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions,” he wrote. The 19-year-old reacted unimpressed a day later.
“Yes, please enlighten me,” Thunberg quoted back, adding that he could reach her at “[email protected]”
Well, men like Andrew Tate aren’t exactly complicated, and it didn’t take long for him to take the bait.
Later that day, the 36-year-old responded with a two-minute “I’m not even mad bro” video in which he had pizza delivered just so he could celebrate his plans not to recycle the boxes. Which is honestly the weirdest flex because pizza boxes usually can’t be recycled anyway as the fat doesn’t make them recyclable anymore. Wasn’t there some batteries he could have flushed down the toilet or something?!
In any case, those smoking pizza boxes deftly led authorities to Tate’s location in Romania as he is currently wanted for human trafficking and subsequently arrested. Welcome to a new episode of the clown show!
But the fact that Tate, previously banned from Twitter, and only got unbanned by Twitter’s new boss jerk Elon Musk, who was Edward Norton’s character glass onion is clearly inspired is too much irony to endure. And while Rian avoids the idea of basing knife out 3 In terms of the unfolding drama, everyone else has no problem drawing parallels.
“Well, the villain in question had the audacity, the hubris, to publicize his whereabouts by posting his pizza box online,” he quipped New York Times Culture reporter Dave Itzkoff doing a perfect Benoit Blanc impersonation.
Many others had similar observations!
If anything, a few people have pointed out that the Tate saga only does glass onion to appear more realistic.
Although some point out knife out already did Andrew Tate if Dave Bautista’s character is based on him.
As they say, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction – let’s take more of it in 2023, please!
