Kangana calls activist Greta ‘spoilt brat’ for backing farmers’ protest

Kangana Ranuat

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday called Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg dumb and a spoilt brat for tweeting in favour of the farmers’ protest in India.

“We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India,” Greta tweeted early on Wednesday, according to India time.

Greta’s tweet came in reaction to a news piece on the CNN website that reads: “India cuts internet around New Delhi as protesting farmers clash with police.”

Replying to Greta’s tweet, Kangana wrote on Twitter: “No fancy activists will talk about genuine environmentalist our own grandma… but they will definitely promote dumb and a spoilt brat ?@GretaThunberg? who is being used by entire left lobby and in return she gets to skip her education and school.”

By “grandma”, Kangana refers to the 105-year-old R Pappammal, an organic farmer from Coimbatore, who was honoured with the Padma Shri for agriculture this year.

Earlier, according to an IANS report on Tuesday, the CNN news piece had prompted international pop sensation Rihanna to write: “Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest.”

Kangana had immediately retorted by calling Rihanna a fool and a dummy.
