Brazil’s President Bolsonaro calls Greta Thunberg a ’brat’

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsaro on Tuesday questioned the coverage media has given to climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, and called her a ’brat’ after she tweeted that indigenous people are ’being murdered’ in Brazil for trying to protect the forest from deforestation. ’It’s impressive that the press is giving space to a brat like that,’ Bolsaro said, using the Portuguese word ’pirralha.

For being an app that aims to spread honest discourse, it’s amazing how people only read the titles of articles and then write comments instantly based on how they feel about, say, a 16 year old girl. With just one click, you can see that Bolsonaro was responding to a Thunberg’s tweet about her concern over the murder of indigenous civilians who are demonstrating against the deforestation of their land and vital resources. I think regardless of how you feel about Thunberg, we should be really concerned over the murder of innocent people and a the fact that the Brazilian president doesn’t care about violence against the civilians of his own country!
