BBC Viewers Angered Over New Greta Thunberg Series. How Dare You?!
The BBC recently announced a new documentary series that will follow teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg around the world.
Some Brits aren’t happy about it since they are paying fees to fund BBC broadcasts, and that’s where the problem lies.
Some took to Twitter to voice their outrage over the series.
One person wrote, “More reason to ditch the tv tax!!!”
Another responded by asking, “What are her qualifications to be interviewed for anything at all? Zero. This is yet more BBC propaganda and misinformation being presented as if it was factual. Another reason (if one was needed) to AxeTheTVtax”
“Let me guess: we only have 10 years to save the universe,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Desperate bbc. Good luck with your lefty doomster audience,” one person tweeted.
But there are just as many who are enthusiastic about Thunberg’s new travel series.
The 17-year-old Swedish teen’s “international crusade” will be documented as she travels to the “most extraordinary places on earth,” to meet with “world leaders, leading scientists, and business heavyweights.”
Viewers will get the opportunity to learn more about Thunberg’s journey into her adult years and see how she deals with obstacles. It will be interesting to see what mode of transportation she uses to travel the world in her new series.
The little girl who claimed to have her dreams and childhood stolen looks like she’s doing quite well now.
Thunberg spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last month and warned world leaders that “our house is still on fire.” Thunberg made headlines a few weeks ago when she announced she filed paperwork to trademark her name.

I really don't want to pay for the doom cult brainwashing our kids and giving them mental health issues. This is madness.
If you are paying this child - or her parents or other "sponsors" - for this appearance then this is just another reason to #DefundtheBBC— GotBrexitDone! #BritishIndependence. Stand Fast. (@simongrant61) February 10, 2020
