Greta Thunberg has faced her fair share of criticism — including from President Trump himself — for her urgent efforts to spread awareness about climate change. But after being called “brainwashed” by Meat Loaf, the Swedish teen took to Twitter to remind people that the climate crisis is “not about me.”

The 72-year-old singer, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, discussed the topic of climate change during an interview with the Daily Mail last week, saying there is no such thing. He even called out 17-year-old Thunberg, saying, “She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn't.”

On Monday, the young activist responded.

“It’s not about Meatloaf. It’s not about me. It’s not about what some people call me. It’s not about left or right,” Thunberg tweeted alongside a graphic from Carbon Brief. “It’s all about scientific facts. And that we’re not aware of the situation. Unless we start to focus everything on this, our targets will soon be out of reach.”

The tweet is among Thunberg’s many others currently focused on the wildfires taking place in Australia. However, on Friday, the teen also took to her social media to thank people for their birthday wishes.
