Much like Black, it turns out Tate once had a profoundly cringe music career himself.
Unlike Black, his flopped and never bounced back whereas Black has gone on to enjoy success, a loyal following and even some critical acclaim in her second act.
Amid the furor over his arrest for alleged sex trafficking after his attempted video clapback at Thunberg allegedly revealed his location to the relevant authorities, Tate's disastrous music career has come back to light.
And Black had the perfect summation after one of his deeply embarrassing music videos went viral last week, as seen below.
Quote-tweeting a clip of Tate's wildly cringe music video for his non-hit song "Sugar Daddy," Black wrote:
"I was 13 this man is 36."
Black was of course referencing her own entry into the cringe hall of fame back in 2011, when she was just a Southern California tween who made a song for YouTube for fun that inadvertently became a point-and-laugh viral sensation.
Tate, on the other hand, made his video last summer as a fully grown man.
Of course this music video, horrendous as it is, doesn't hold a candle to the allegations against Tate who has spent his post-UFC career spouting far-right, misogynistic rhetoric and picking fights on Twitter with Greta Thunberg only to wind up in jail on sex trafficking charges among others.
He is currently in custody in Romania on charges of human trafficking, rape and forming an organized crime group, allegations Tate chalked up to "the matrix" attacking him.
Black on the other hand is very much not in jail or facing international criminal charges and just wrapped up a tour and announced a forthcoming album.
But even without all that, she still handily won this fight and people on Twitter are loving her shady response.

Black's new album comes out later this year.
Meanwhile, Tate's beloved collection of cars that started this entire furor was seized by Romanian authorities.
Black: 1 – Tate: negative infinity.
