Sean Strickland yet again gets himself into controversy as the UFC fighter mocks Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg for her claims regarding climate change. Thunberg is well known all around the world for speaking publicly about social issues such as climate change. She gets a lot of support online as well as hate from many of her critics online.
In a recent tweet, she explained how people around the world continue to ignore climate change and that governments avoid taking any measures for it. “People in power still somehow live in denial, and actively move in the wrong direction,” wrote Greta Thunberg.
Strickland is obviously one of those critics who can’t stand Thunberg and her arguments at all. He replied to that tweet by calling Thunberg a retard and giving her a paradoxical situation of her using a smartphone to spread her message.
He wrote: “Yo retard you’re literally using a phone as we speak… A phone made in some polluting factory in China, lithium takes a massive amount of water and waste….. Can we please just throw this idiot in a forest somewhere.”
It’s not the first time Strickland is getting into such an online altercation with others as the fighter is quite infamous for this. The fighter has already been banned from Twitter once for making homophobic and transphobic comments in the past.
