Former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Meat Loaf believes, just like his ex-boss, that climate change is not an actual thing! That being said, he did not hesitate to slam Greta Thunberg for campaigning for the opposite, calling the young 17 year old activist ‘brainwashed!’
As you can imagine, social media was not happy to hear this so a lot of users took to their accounts to clap back at the Bat Out of Hell singer.
It all started with the 72 year old saying that he feels bad for Greta, who even won Time’s Person of the Year title for her activism.
During the interview with MailOnline, he went on to explain why he felt that way, telling the news outlet that ‘she had been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t’.’
While he agrees with Donald Trump in that aspect, he insisted that, (unlike the president,) he was not actually trying to slam the teen.
‘She hasn’t done anything wrong, but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true,’ he went on to dish, adding that he really ‘feels bad for her.’
Not only that but as far as Meat Loaf is concerned, she was probably ‘forced’ into becoming a climate change activist.
It did not take long for people online to clap back at the rock star!
Here are a few of their reactions: ‘Mr. Loaf’s a talented singer and songwriter, but not an intelligent person. I guess 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.’ / ‘He will probably be dead before the worst effects of climate change occur. So he just ignores it… Greta’s trying to get the rest of us to think about the future survival of humans.’ / ‘Meat Loaf calls Greta Thunberg brainwashed. Greta should call Meat Loaf well done.’
