​Greta Thunberg Mocks Conspiracy Theorist Trolls In 18th Birthday Post

​Greta Thunberg Mocks Conspiracy Theorist Trolls In 18th Birthday Post

Greta Thunberg has taken a swipe at conspiracy theorists in a social media post marking her 18th birthday, sharing a photo of herself wearing a 'Flat Mars Society' top while giving two thumbs up to the camera.

Thunberg, who turned 18 today, thanked fans for their birthday wishes, before joking that she'd be popping down to her local boozer to chat conspiracy theories.

"Thank you so much for all the well-wishes on my 18th birthday!" she wrote.

"Tonight you will find me down at the local pub exposing all the dark secrets behind the climate - and school strike conspiracy and my evil handlers who can no longer control me! I am free at last!!"

One person said her post was 'brilliant', adding: "The conspiracy theories about you are hilarious. I'm glad you can see the funny side of it all, rather than letting it stop you. Most of them are ableist because they think your autism stops you from being able to think for yourself, but they're obviously wrong."

Someone else wrote: "You are WONDERFUL Greta! A fantastic tweet."

In an interview with the Sunday Times to mark her birthday, the climate change activist revealed that she asks to borrow clothes from friends if they have garments they don't need anymore, rather than purchase something brand new.

She told the publication: "I don't need new clothes. I know people who have clothes, so I would ask them if I could borrow them or if they have something they don't need anymore.

"The worst-case scenario, I guess I'll buy second-hand."

While Thunberg said she's made many changes to her life, she added that she didn't judge others who lived differently to her - though understood why celebrities could come under fire for apparent hypocrisy.

She said: "I'm not telling anyone else what to do, but there is a risk when you are vocal about these things and don't practise as you preach, then you will become criticised for that and what you are saying won't be taken seriously."
