Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg has responded to a graphic cartoon appearing to depict her being sexually assaulted after a wave of social media backlash against a Canadian oil company whose logo appears on the image.
A torrent of online outrage was sparked when Michelle Narang of Rocky Mountain House, posted the image on social media Wednesday night. The girl's hair is in two braids, a style often sported by Thunberg, and they're being pulled back by a pair of hands.
The promotion came to light last week when someone who works at the company, X-Site, sent a picture of it to a friend who later shared the image on Facebook.
The company adds that management takes full responsibility and organizational changes have been made to reflect this.
Narang said she called Sparrow on Wednesday and he told her he was aware of the stickers being distributed and that he stood by them.
Stevie Ralph-Taylor said "she should be burnt at the stake" and Max Poncho Morgan said "milkshakes at the ready" ahead of the protest.
She said the image was so jarring and hurtful that she cried. Someone has done this.
As per a report in the Huffington Post, the cartoon appears to have originated as a hard hat sticker on a job site.
James was flummoxed, "I have not succeeded in coming to any nuanced or sophisticated analysis of why this young woman, who subscribes to precisely the same world view as David Attenborough, excites such vile responses from people who, mostly one has to presume. must know better".
X-Site said it is discussing a code of conduct with its employees and that it will hold sessions on respect in the workplace with all staff. "But just as we are committed to help reduce our industry's environmental footprint, we are committed to learn from and correct our mistake", it said.
These ghouls wouldn't let the fact that Thunberg is A CHILD deter them from ridiculing and threatening the Swedish activist, because these people are disgusting.
The image reportedly did not include components necessary for it to be child pornography, nor does it show "a non-consensual act that would be a direct threat to the person". "This shows that we're winning", she captioned a retweet of an article about the sticker.
