Joe Rogan recently discussed the arrest of controversial former kickboxer Andrew Tate. The UFC commentator also shared his thoughts on the Twitter feud between Tate and environmental activist Greta Thunberg, labeling her response to his arrest as the best tweet of the year.
Speaking to guest Dave Portnoy on episode #1920 of The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE), Rogan stated:
"He's making fun of Greta Thunberg and then he gets f**king arrested right afterwards. It's kind of hilarious. The way it happened - like people said, it's the biggest self-owned 'L'... It's kind of funny when she said that's what happens when you don't recycle your pizza boxes. That s**t's hilarious. You gotta give it to her. Also, why are you going after some 19-year-old autistic girl that's really into like climate change?"
Rogan went on to discuss Tate's social media ban, adding:
"I don't think banning people is the way. I think this exchange with Greta Thunberg is the perfect example of how to counteract that. She just mocks him, and then he gets arrested and she has the f**king tweet of the year making fun of his arrest, and a perfect f**king one liner - 'That's what happens when you don't recycle your pizza boxes.' It's genius."
Tate is currently incarcerated as he faces charges of human trafficking. Romanian authorities have denied that his tweet had anything to do with his arrest. However, the timing of the arrest made many believe otherwise.

Joe Rogan shares his thoughts on Andrew Tate's message
During episode #1920 of JRE, Joe Rogan and guest Dave Portnoy discussed the human trafficking allegations brought against controversial social media personality Andrew Tate.
The UFC commentator shared his thoughts on Tate's message, stating:
"I don't know him. If I did know him, I would tell him all the boastful s**t and the s**t about him being the Top G and all that stuff - all that s**t's great, but the misogynistic stuff - like, if you have daughters or if you have a wife or if you have sisters, you don't want that. That narrative, putting that out there, that's negative - to everybody. It's not even positive to him. It's like, it's not necessary."
Tate came under fire for comments he made that many found misogynistic. The backlash led to him being banned from social media platforms.
