Piers Morgan, 56, has today responded on Twitter to a video of Greta Thunberg, 18, singing along to a crude song while attending COP26 climate summit. The teenager belted out the lyrics “shove climate change up your a**” while standing alongside fellow eco-warriors in Glasgow.
Piers retweeted the video and typed: “I like @GretaThunberg and think she’s a very effective campaigner – but she can also be very very annoying.”
In response, fans were left divided over the former Good Morning Britain presenter’s comments.
@Mountainlady7 typed: “@GretaThunberg I don’t like her at all. She is never mentioned in Norway.”
@mmhiggins7 responded: “Why doesn’t she have a one on one debate with a climate scientist. Love to see it. She is to climate as Jake Paul is to boxing… only relevant because of social media”
@StuartM93716044 commented: “I love the way she’s so relevant at a young age, you could only dream eh?”
While TauTao said: “It seems that she would know where to tell you to shove this comment.”
Greta denounced world leaders for failing to act on climate change in a foul-mouthed tirade at COP26 today, alongside protestors.
Government representatives have gathered in Glasgow to discuss green issues this week, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson using his opening address to compare the situation to James Bond trying to defuse a “doomsday device”.
US President Joe Biden, Germany’s Angela Merkel, and President Emmanuel Macron of France are among those gathering at the event in an attempt to foster international cooperation on climate change.
Antonio Guterres, the UN secretary-general, today accused countries of “treating nature like a toilet” as he warned of a looming “climate catastrophe”.
Naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough asked attendees: “Is this how our story is due to end – a tale of the smartest species doomed by that all-too-human characteristic of failing to see the bigger picture in pursuit of short-term goals?”
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said the outcome of the climate summit would be “life or death for millions of people”, suggesting that failure to act could be worse than leaders who ignored warnings about the Nazis in the 1930s – a comment he later apologised for.

Speaking at a demonstration at Festival Park, Glasgow, on the first day of the COP26 summit, Greta said that heads of government were not doing enough to save the planet from disaster.
She said: “No more blah blah blah, no more whatever the f*** they are doing inside there.
“Inside Cop, there are just politicians and people in power pretending to take our future seriously, pretending to take the present seriously.
“Change is not going to come from inside there, that is not leadership – this is leadership… We say no more blah blah blah, no more exploitation of people and the planet.”
Greta arrived in Glasgow on Sunday by train and will take part in two large protests through the city later in the week. Her stark warning comes as Mr Johnson warned COP26 delegates that the longer it takes to tackle climate change, the higher the cost will be when a “catastrophe” forces world leaders to act.
Addressing world leaders including US President Joe Biden, India’s Narendra Modi and German chancellor Angela Merkel, Boris said the world was in the same position as James Bond as he tries to deactivate a doomsday device in his films.
But he said: “The tragedy is this is not a movie and the doomsday device is real.”
Greta recently chastised Britain and other nations for giving “empty words and promises”, instead of offering any real action.
