Willfully ignorant jackass attacks teenage girl, film at eleven:
Greta Thunberg has responded to Meat Loaf’s claims that she has been “brainwashed” into believing in climate change.
The hard rock veteran argued last week (January 3) that the 17-year-old activist’s time would be better spent on something other than working to reverse climate change.
“I feel for that Greta,” he said. “She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t. She hasn’t done anything wrong but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true.”
Thunberg, who has become a figurehead for the global environmental movement and inspired a number of protests, strikes and the continued work of Extinction Rebellion, has now responded to the musician. “It’s not about Meatloaf. It’s not about me. It’s not about what some people call me. It’s not about left or right,” she tweeted.Meat Loaf is, essentially, just an old man trying to stop the world from changing. This is why he is a failure. It has nothing to do with his music, his art, his ability to perform. It is because he has entered the public space and attacked someone else because they represent a changing world he does not comprehend. No one needs to do that. You disagree, fine. But don't expect to be taken seriously anymore. Don't expect to get away with this shit.
In other words, fuck this guy.
