'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".
