She addressed online trolls in a recent interview.
Climate activist Greta Thunberg appears to have addressed the arrest of Andrew Tate, which came after she implied he had “small d*** energy” on Twitter.
Andrew and his brother Tristan are currently being held in custody by Romanian police after they were arrested on a suspicion of a number of crimes including human trafficking and rape.
Prior to his arrest, Andrew had targeted Greta in a video in which he boasted about his fuel-guzzling cars.
Now, in an interview with ABC News, Greta was asked about the misogynistic blogger.
She said: “There are many, many problems in the world that we need people dealing with.
“But it seems like they feel so threatened or they feel like their worldview is so threatened by people like me – climate activists and environmental activists – speaking up that they feel like they need to silence us and mock us.
“That should be seen as a positive sign because that means that we are actually having an impact.
“Otherwise, they wouldn’t be spending their time trolling us online.”
The Tates were arrested by Romanian authorities shortly after Christmas.
At the time of his arrest, a spokesperson for the misogynistic online personality said: “We cannot provide any details at the moment regarding alleged reports that they have been detained; however, Andrew and Tristan Tate have the utmost respect for the Romanian authorities and will always assist and help in any way they can.”
After his arrest, Greta joked that this is what happens when you don’t recycle your pizza boxes.
