Controversial internet personality Andrew Tate has now claimed that Elon Musk copied his hand gesture in a BBC interview.
Tate, who was recently released from Romanian jail and put under house arrest, responded to a Twitter fan who wrote: "@elonmusk doing the @Cobratate hand sign while destroying a reporter with logic and facts. Gotta love this."
The 36-year-old quipped: "Its [sic] the symbol of truth."
Diehard Tate fans chimed in on the action, with one writing: "It’s the symbol of those who no longer accept the Matrix as being their ruling arbiters."
Another passionate Twitter user wrote: "Truth Prevails. ALWAYS," while a third added: "The symbol of the new revolution."
