Kim Kardashian invites Greta Thunberg for dinner, wants to be teen climate activist's social media mentor
The 38-year-old reality TV star called the young climate activist a 'brave and amazing young woman' whom she would love to have over for dinner
While a number of conservative world leaders and religious heads have openly criticized 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, reality TV star Kim Kardashian has called the young climate activist a "brave and amazing young woman" whom she would love to have over for dinner.
The 38-year-old mother-of-three showered the Swedish climate crusader with praise during her interview with Reuters at the World Congress on Information Technology in Armenia.
“She is such an amazing young girl, and so brave and courageous to stand up to these grown-ups. That can be very scary. And for her to be so open and honest is exactly what we need,” the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star said.
Kim added that climate change is a "serious problem” and praised Greta for standing up for what she believed in.
She also was willing to lend her expertise on the best way to leverage Greta's social media account by sitting down with her parents. “Speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities and how they (parents) manage that,” Kardashian said.
The KKW Beauty business mogul had nearly 150 million Instagram followers and 62 million followers on Twitter. The teen activist, on the other hand, has 7.5 million Instagram followers and nearly three million followers on Twitter.
After her passionate speech at the United Nations Climate Change Summit, where she scolded some of the most powerful men in the world, Greta was subjected to rude mockery from a number of political leaders, including the presidents of the United States and Russia.
While Donald Trump called her "a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future," on Twitter, Vladimir Putin called the teen a kind but "poorly informed teenager" who was being "used by adults" while he was speaking at an energy forum in Moscow.
Instead of getting back at the leaders with vicious statements, Greta wittily altered her Twitter bio each time to reflect their comments. The first time, her bio read, "A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future" in response to Trump's comment. She changed her bio the second time after Putin's comments and described herself as "A kind but poorly informed teenager."
