Greta Thunberg changes Twitter bio in dig at Boris Johnson
The environmental activist is well-known for mocking world leaders on social media
Greta Thunberg hit back at the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Twitter after he made a comment about 'bunny hugging' in attempt to get other countries across the globe to take action against climate change.
Speaking virtually at this year's Leaders Summit on Climate, hosted by the US President Biden, Johnson said: "It’s vital for all of us to show that this is not all about some expensive politically correct green act of ‘bunny hugging’ or however you want to put it. Nothing wrong with ‘bunny hugging’ but you know what I’m driving at."

In response to the PM's speech, the 18-year-old environmental activist took to Twitter in her usual style to mock yet another world leader on social media.
Thunberg changed her Twitter bio to include "bunny hugger" in a reported dig to the Prime Minister, following his speech at this year's climate summit.

In January 2020, Thunberg comically changed her Twitter name to 'Sharon' after Amanda Henderson wrongly said on Celebrity Mastermind that 'Sharon' was the name of the Swedish climate change activist that wrote Greta's famous book No One is Too Small To Make A Difference.
People have found the activist's new Twitter bio hilarious.
On Twitter, one user, who shared an image of Greta's new bio, said: "Just brilliant Twitter game by Greta #bunnyhugger."
Another person said: "Greta Thunberg has changed her bio to "bunny hugger" and I am here for this."
Leaders from China, Russia, Canada, Japan and Brazil also attended the two-day-long virtual summit, which coincided with Earth Day.
Addressing the world leaders, Johnson said: "I want to leave you with the thought that we can build back better from this pandemic by building back greener.
"Don’t forget that the UK has been able to cut our own CO2 emissions by about 42% on 1990 levels and we’ve seen our economy grow by 73%, you can do both at once. Cake have eat is my message to you."
He added: "Let’s work together on this."
