Someone Please Send Me A Memo For When Donald Trump Learns This News About Greta Thunberg Inching In On His Territory

There’s no denying that the world has an intense obsession with climate activist and queen bee  Greta Thunberg.  The straightforward teen who has had her mind on enacting change for the climate crisis by leading school climate strikes and delivering damning speeches has caught the attention of just about everyone within the past year. And she’s touched people too. In the past year, researchers have reported a massive uptick in positive approaches to helping the environment. In June of this past year, Swedish Railways reported  that t the number of Swedes taking the train for domestic journeys had risen by 8% from the previous year. Recently TIME magazine featured her as their Time Person Of The Year, much to President Donald Trump’s chagrin. 

Thunberg’s impact on the globe and our environment has been so inspiring, Hulu wants to make a documentary about her.

Currently titled “Greta,” the climate activist is ready to talk to you face to face… via a TV screen.

 On Monday, it was announced by the big time streaming service that Thunberg is set to be the subject of one of their latest documentaries. Tentatively titled “Greta” the Hulu documentary is said to focus on the climate change activist and her activism. In a statement to Deadline, Hulu released a longline that describes the film as following Thunberg beginning in 2019.  

“In August 2018, Thunberg, a 15-year-old student in Sweden, starts a school strike for the climate. Her question for adults: if you don’t care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school? Within months, her strike evolves into a global movement. The quiet teenage girl on the autism spectrum becomes a world-famous activist.”

The documentary is directed by Nathan Grossman, the same creator behind the documentary The Man Who Played with Fire about writer Stieg Larrson of the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Series. Through the documentary, audiences will have a chance to watch journey of Thunberg from her days as a Swedish teen kicking off her own first school strike in Stockholm, Sweden in 2018 through to her appearances as parliaments and massive international protests this year. According to Deadline, the documentary has been made to “make the world understand the urgency of the climate crisis.”

The documentary is set to provide insight into Thunberg’s progression from an early age.

The film, which does not have a known date yet but is slated to be released in 2020, apparently was made possible after Hulu worked to follow Thunberg from her first burst into activism as a solo school strike participant. At the time, Thunberg challenged politicians and adults across the globe demanding them to answer the question “If you don’t care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school?”

Within just this past year, Thunberg’s strikes have sparked an international movement.

Thunberg has held court with leading world leaders, she addressed the world in iconic speach at the United Nations Climate Action Summit, and more recently she received a nomination for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. During her September appearance at the United Nations summit, Thunberg shamed leaders for imploring her help with this massive and devastating issue.  “I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean,” she said. “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… We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth.”

Thunberg’s presence has more than just shaken up our attention to the climate crisis, she’s also gotten under the skin of some of the biggest and conservative world leaders in existence.

Greta Thunberg/TwitterLast month, Trump, aged 73 and an extreme climate change denier, tweeted about Greta’s big TIME honor.

It was announced the Thunberg had been named Person of the Year by Time magazine this week for her uncompromising contribution to changing the course of the climate crisis. Most watching were relieved to find that the magazine had selected Thunberg in favor of a figure like Donald Trump. ( In 2016, the magazine selected Trump after his presidential election and disruption of traditional politics.) His selection had disgusted those who’d watched his horrendous campaign and attacks on women, people of color and other minorities throughout his campaign. So to say that the selection of a person devoted to changing the world for the better delighted most of us, would be an understatement.  Donald Trump however, proved to be extremely unhappy.

Um Hi, Armie Hammer Dropped Out Of A JLO Movie After Leaked Texts Claimed He’s Into Being A Cannibal And Is 2021 Over Yet?

Yes, welcome to 2021. A year whose heels only just hit the ground when Republican extremists terrorized the Capitol building leading to Donald Trump’s impeachment… And oh yeah saw actor Armie Hammer being accused of liking cannibalism. Yes, we said it cannibalism, ya know, an appetite for eating your own kind?

Gossip surrounding the Call Me By Your Name actor and his sex life has become so salacious that the actor announced that he was stepping back from an upcoming movie with Jennifer Lopez.

Armie Hammer announced this week that he will no longer star in the upcoming movie, Shotgun Wedding alongside Jennifer Lopez.

The brewing scandal involving Hammer includes alleged leaked messages related to his sex life.

The leaked messages alleged that Hammer has a thing for fantasies related to rape and cannibalism and was leaked by an anonymous social media account user with the name House of Effie. According to the account, Hammer told a woman that he was “100 percent a cannibal.” Another message suggested that Hammer liked the taste of blood.

“I’m not responding to these bulls–t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” Hammer said in a statement to Page Six. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”

Still, the show will go on for Lopez who will star in the film being directed by “Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore.

The film will be distributed in the US by Lionsgate and will stream internationally on Amazon Prime. According to Deadline, Shotgun Wedding was meant to see Lopez and Hammer “play a couple who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as they begin to get cold feet about their relationship. If that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken, hostage.”

Despite the unconfirmed gossip around him, Hammer still has upcoming projects. These include the thriller, “The Billion Dollar Spy,” and a sequel to the 2017 hit “Call Me By Your Name” in which he played Oliver, a handsome doctoral student.

Its not the first time gossip around Hammer’s love life has caused a stir. In a 2013, Playboy interview Hammer described himself as a “dominant lover” and enjoyed “grabbing women by the neck and hair.”

He later told E! News of the candid Playboy interview, “Don’t drink during an interview.”
