The participation of Thunberg received huge criticism and she was all over Twitter on Wednesday.
Further Yashar Ali journalist and frequent Twitterati stated that: “What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall?”
Other like Ben Shapiro and Stephen L. Miller also tweeted in rage. Shapiro said: “Is there anyone at CNN with any level of self-awareness? Featuring Greta Thunberg on a COVID-19 expert panel is just beyond words. I actually cannot believe they are this insane/stupid.”
Stephen wrote saying: “She’s a virologist now? Amazing. Multiple science degrees at such a young age. An incredible inspiration to us all.”
Some others like Roxane Gay backed Thunberg stating: “Unqualified men appear on cable all day every day, bloviating endlessly, but Greta Thunberg is a bridge too far? Ok.”
Besides, Greta was the recipient of “Time’s person of the year 2019,” for her protests against climate change.
