Bolsonaro called Greta Thunberg a brat, so obviously she made it her Twitter bio

Oh how we've missed a classic Greta trolling moment. Luckily for us all, she's back.

It all began when 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg tweeted about the appalling treatment of indigenous communities in Brazil.

Clearly the far-right Brazilian president disagreed with her analysis, but instead of calmly disputing the facts, he just sarcastically smirked while saying:

Greta’s been saying Indians have died because they were defending the Amazon.

It’s amazing how much space the press gives this kind of 'pirralha'.

Pirralha translates to "pest" or "brat", which may or may not be worse than his previous attempt to address her, in which he referred to her simply as "that girl".

It seems Thunberg was made aware of the latest insult, because as she has done previously to Putin and Trump, she responded in the best possible way – by changing her Twitter bio.
