Marjorie Taylor Greene was mocked on social media after claiming Bill Gates wants people to eat "fake meat that grows in a peach tree dish."

Greene, who won her Republican primary last week, made the remarks during the latest broadcast of her social media streaming show 'MTG Live'. The 48-year-old congresswoman said the government wanted to monitor every aspect of life in the US. However, the clip became popular due to her mispronunciation of the petri dish as "peach tree dish." The Republican firebrand, who has a degree in business administration from the University of Georgia, caused widespread amusement with her gaffe.

"You have to accept the fact that the government totally wants to provide surveillance on every part of your life," Greene told her followers in the latest episode of 'MTG Live.' "They want to know when you are eating, they want to know if you are eating a cheeseburger - which is very bad because Bill Gates wants you to eat his fake meat that grows in a peach tree dish." She continued, "So you will probably get a little zap inside your body and that is saying 'no, no, don't eat a real cheeseburger, eat the fake burger,' the fake meat from Bill Gates. They probably also want to know when you go to the bathroom, and if your bowel movements are on time or consistent. I mean, what else do these people want to know?"



Greene was referring to new meat alternatives such as 'Impossible Burger' and 'Beyond Meats'. Gates, 66, is an investor in several companies working to produce meat alternatives, including Beyond Meats, Carbon Engineering, Impossible Foods, Memphis Meats, and Pivot Bio. According to the UN, livestock rearing constitutes more than 14 percent of all man-made greenhouse gases and that beef is the largest contributor, the Daily Mail reported. "I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef," Gates told MIT Technology Review in a February 2021 interview. "You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they're going to make it taste even better over time."

Greene, who represents Georgia's 14th congressional district, was heavily mocked on social media for her comments.

"I’ll have a beyond burger on a peach tree dish, please," actress Rosanna Arquette quipped.

"If someone serves me meat Bill Gates grew in a peach tree dish, I will *immediately* call the Gazpacho Police. Don’t even think about it," podcaster Rachel Vindman added, referencing Greene's February invocation of the 'gazpacho police' when she meant the Gestapo. The congresswoman said at the time, "Not only do we have the DC jail which is the DC gulag, but now we have Nancy Pelosi's gazpacho police spying on members of Congress, spying on the legislative work that we do, spying on our staff and spying on American citizens."

"Sorry. I can’t sleep because I’m trying to imagine the image @RepMTG conjures in her mind when she says @BillGates has a peach tree dish with fake meat growing in it. And people vote for her? If they really cared about her they’d put her in a hospital," 'Thirtysomething' star Ken Olin wrote.

"I owe @RepMTG an apology. I have been mocking her intellect using example after example of her stupidity, not realizing that she’s actually someone who thinks things are made in a “peach tree dish.” Yes. She’s…THAT stupid…and deserves our profound sympathy. Apologies," singer Richard Marx chimed in.

"We’re all making fun of peach tree dish but until I was well into 1st grade I thought my dad was saying 'doggy dog world' and I thought that sounded lovely," author Lauren Hough offered.
