Spitting Image insists Greta Thunberg is fair game after puppet backlash

'Spitting Image' is the revival of an old British show which uses puppets to lampoon political figures and celebrities. The new season has climate activist Greta Thunberg as one of the puppets which has sparked a lot of controversy as she is a teenage girl with autism. The head of the streaming service airing it said that her appearance is a "very straightforward joke and is nothing to do with her as an individual".

Greta Thunberg did not comment but previously liked an image of her puppet on Twitter.

A trailer for the show (NSFW):
