Rock legend Meat Loaf has claimed that Greta Thunberg has been “brainwashed” and denies that there is a climate change emergency.
The teenager, Thunberg, has been vocal in the pursuit of action for the climate emergency and has seen her become a figurehead for a number of protests and the work of Extinction Rebellion.
It’s work that has seen her nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize and be named as Time’s Person Of The Year. Yet, the bellowing rock legend Meat Loaf has taken to a recent interview to argue against the 17-year-old.
“I feel for that Greta,” he told the Daily Mail. “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.”
It’s a differing opinion from some of the music world’s brightest stars who have all praised Thunberg and her efforts in raising awareness about the environmental challenge we face. Patti Smith, Billie Eilish, The 1975 and Björk have all voiced support for the youngster.
Recently Great Thunberg ‘met’ with iconic environmentalist David Attenborough which you can see below.
