In an unexpected turn of events, Trump supporters appear to be claiming that Greta Thunberg was part of the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6.

A bizarre new theory is circulating online that Greta Thunberg was one of the rioters that stormed the Capitol on January 6. 

Greta Thunberg, teenager and environmental activist, is the last person you would think to be involved in the storming of the Capitol. 

However, theories are now circulating online that she was part of the mob. 

There is an image doing the rounds on the internet of Greta, cut next to an image of a bearded man present at the storming of the Capitol. The caption reads “nice try, Greta”. 

People appear to be suggesting that the resemblance between the rioter, who is wearing a Trump hat whilst holding a Trump flag, and Greta is uncanny. 

Whilst the Trump supporting man and teenage activist may share similar (and I say similar very lightly) face shapes, the pair look nothing alike. 

Unless Greta had somehow ingested an awful lot of testosterone prior to January 6, it is hard to believe that the middle aged man with the moustache and beard is actually the teenage activist. 

Not only this, but Greta has been an avid critic of Donald Trump, so she probably would not ever be seen wearing a Trump hat – let alone storming the Capitol. 

Whilst this seems to be an online joke, and none other than a light hearted meme, it seems that some people are taking this conspiracy theory seriously.



There are indeed many conspiracy theories suggesting that the riots were orchestrated by left-wing groups, disguised as Trump supporters. These theories are unfounded and have been proven to be a load of nonsense. 

With that in mind, it’s HIGHLY unlikely that Greta Thunberg was involved in the storming of the Capitol.
