Millions of young people are giving their support to Thunberg as she called out lawmakers for their lack of action to prevent climate change during a United Nations summit in New York, according to Mashable.

 

However, many were upset about Xiaxue’s post.

After learning this, she posted an unapologetic message and started to insult those who called her out, Mothership reported.

“I sincerely apologize. I’m truly sorry,” the woman wrote, adding the following in all caps, “sorry that you are a childish, easily offended person who thinks one person’s IG story actually matters you idiot.”

Xiaxue went on to suggest people to “get rid” of themselves.

“If you truly cared about the Earth, there is only one thing to do. Get rid of yourself because guess who is producing CO2 and destroying Mother Earth,” she said.

This isn’t the first time Xiaxue has sparked controversy online. In October 2018, she received threats for dressing up as Malaysia’s former first lady Rosmah Mansor for Halloween.
