Greta Thunberg is a Swedish climate protection activist who has received as much attention as no other person this year. Except for Donald Trump. The 16-year-old was recently named "Person of the Year" by "Time" magazine. Justin Sun, known as a marketing and hype expert, now wants to use this attention for himself and announces a great benefit for Thunberg and her initiative.
Incredibility after PR disaster
Climate Protection affects us all and can be seen as positive for many companies Public Relations use. That probably also thought Justin Sun and announces in a tweet $ XNUMX million to Greta Thunberg and your Initiative to donate. The tweet says:
As a young entrepreneur, I share the passion with Greta Thunberg to change the world. Thanks to decentralized billing, crypto will have a significant share in reducing CO2 consumption. I would personally like to donate $ 1 million to Greta Thunberg's initiative.
As a young entrepreneur, I share @GretaThunberg's passion to change the world. Crypto will contribute immensely on reducing carbon footprint by implementing decentralized settlement. I would like to personally commit USD $ 1 Mil to @GretaThunberg 's initiative. # cop25

The message is shared by his community mixed feelings added. Not just because of the last PR events like the Tesla raffle or that Dinner with a Warren buffet a absolute disaster were. Neither do his fans agree on what to make of Thunberg's activities. Justin Sun should not have been aware that much of his followers no fans of the 16-year-old Swede are.
The reactions do not speak for Sun:
Heidi (@Blockchainchick) writes: "Greta who? Sorry, I focus too much on things that are important. Not narrative idiots to focus on when it comes to government. "
CryptoFelix (@crypticfelix) replies to the tweet: "I would also like to personally donate a million dollars. I would like to. But I won't. I won't give away a Tesla either, gfy."
Caleb Wright (@ CalebWright802): "Nooo. Waste of money in my opinion, put it in something valuable with less hype, like the sea cleaning project everyone is talking about ..."
With this action Justin Sun should not have achieved what he wanted to achieve. We are very excited when and whether the donation arrives.
