Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has updated her Twitter biography to describe herself as a "bunny hugger".

The change comes after remarks made by the prime minister, Boris Johnson, to US President Joe Biden's virtual climate summit on 22 April.

In his speech, Boris Johnson described "the politically correct green act of bunny hugging".

The remarks made were met with bemusement from some on social media.

It is not the first time the Swedish climate activist - who's also changed her Instagram profile - has used her Twitter bio to make a joke.

She changed her Twitter bio to feature the words "currently chilling" after former US President Donald Trump told her to "chill" in 2019.

In the same year, she also changed her description on the site to "pirralha" (the Portuguese word for brat) after Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro used the word to describe her.

She also responded to Russian President Vladimir Putin calling her "a kind but poorly informed teenager" by putting the quote into her social media biography.

Or she could just rise above it all and concentrate on her goals? Rolling Eyes

I wish someone would tell her face it's a joke.

A young girl should be happy and smiling not so angst ridden.

Here I thought she had faded into the obscurity that would be better for her and the rest of the planet.

I've always wondered why women smile more than men.

Seems to me she's taken all this crap from some of the most powerful men in the world quite light-heartedly. I'd probably react the same way in her shoes, like when Trump branded journalists the enemy of the American people, so I added that line to my title here.

I think much of that is her being on the spectrum.

And the rest is her parents.

I blame her parents too, and doubly so if she is on the spectrum.
