Jeremy Clarkson Calls Out Greta Thunberg In Latest Column – “Spoilt Brat”

Jeremy Clarkson of The Grand Tour and previously Top Gear is no stranger to calling someone out on Twitter on in his column. He’s also no stranger to a bit of controversy resulting from his writing. But when the presenters called out 16-yer old Greta Thunberg a ‘spoit brat’, his account blew up.

Thunberg had just finished her speech in front of the United Nations where she scalded them for ruining her childhood with climate change.

‘I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ the Swedish girl remarked with tears in her eyes.

Clarkson has a different opinion, though, and believes that it isn’t in her best interest to be an activist at her age. He says how science will be what solves the problem ‘not scowling and having screaming ab-dabs every five minutes’.

‘So be a good girl, shut up and let them get on with it,’ Clarkson says. But Emily Clarkson, his daughter, was quickly making her side known on Twitter.

She wasn’t afraid to bat back at her dad, either.

Do you support Greta Thunberg? Let us know what you think in the comments, but please keep things civil and polite. I know this can be a fiery subject for some.

  6. This is the man who was fired from the BBC for punching a producer because there wasn’t a hot meal for him one evening. He has no ground to stand on to call even a child a spoiled brat.

    1. For most (not all) the negative responses about this young lady come from fear or jealousy; there’s almost no objective criticism about her; it’s fear and jealousy.

      1. She’s done nothing of the sort. She’s being used like a sock puppet. If you can’t see the theatre here you’re just as blind and histerical as those that literally think the world is going to end in 12 years.

  7. He’s too right. Get back to school, her parents should be ashamed. This is just another paper doll we aren’t allowed to argue with. Stop this bullshit already, clearly you don’t have enough evidence to curtail freedom in the name of Euro trash science so this little girl is given a script to make us feel terrible. I’d have said worse than Jeremy and his own idiot daughter does not change the state of the facts.

  10. sorry jezza, you’ve gone off the rails on this one. your point of view is not funny, appropriate, or correct. if it was an attempt to get some cheap laughs you whiffed hard. if you actually have those sentiments you need to do some soul searching as wel as a bit of reading on the characteristics of leadership. chirping insults from behind your screen at a child is astonishingly asinine and pathetic. what Greta T has done with the past year of her life shodul be inspring to all us fools who are the ones responsibole for the damage her generation will need to live with. so drop the imbicilic anti scinece schtick and grow up. this is coming from a fan of yours for over a decade.

  11. Clarkson for Prime Minister! Minority groups and militant activists are reaching their opinions down our throats. Politicians should be ashamed of how they behave, Vegans and Radical Environmentalists need to get real, whit not engage with the rest of us and bring forward practical solutions instead of throwing stones and puking hatred

  12. It’s all a ploy the left has been using children for decades. If don’t believe me look up Severn Cullis-Suzuki the 12 year old from Vancouver in 92!!

  13. I’m of the opinion that no one should give an obvious mentally defective 16yr old girl an audience no matter what nonsense is spewing out of her mouth. She’s not an adult, so her opinions matter not one iota, she needs to sit down and stfu already.
