Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, on Thursday, mocked her critics on Twitter by posing as herself on Halloween, suggesting she scares her detractors. Thunberg, along with a picture of herself in black, wrote a caption saying she scared "a bunch of angry climate crisis deniers" without even having to dress up for the holiday.

Thunberg's black and white picture also had her trademark "school strike for climate" placard. The 16-year-old said that although she does not celebrate Halloween in Sweden, she thought she would "give it a try" in an attempt to troll her critics.

"So today is Halloween. I don’t celebrate it back home, but I thought I might give it a try," Thunberg wrote on Twitter Thursday night. "And apparently when it comes to scaring a bunch of angry climate crisis deniers - I don’t even have to dress up!"

The teenager is currently touring North America and has drawn large crowds at multiple environmental rallies in the country. Thunberg, who rose to popularity through her weekly Friday protest outside the Swedish parliament a year ago, inspired millions of people across the world to take to the streets in an effort to demand emergency action on climate change from their governments.

The climate activist, at the UN conference last month, slammed world leaders for their inaction towards climate change and said: "This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words."

Thunberg has drawn the ire of several climate change deniers, including President Donald Trump who took to Twitter after the teen's famous UN speech and wrote a sarcastic tweet saying she "seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future." Thunberg later used Trump's description of her as her own Twitter bio briefly.

The teen's angry glare at Trump after he upstaged her by walking into the climate summit with his entourage also became a viral sensation. Thunberg, after her appearance in New York, took to Twitter to slam her trolls who had taken aim at her for her "looks, clothes, behavior and differences."
