Viewers watched in disbelief when a guest appeared in her birthday suit on a popular programme, This Morning, on a national television in the United Kingdom to raise awareness for climate change.
If the presenters, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, were shocked, they didn't betray emotion as the duo watched the young female activist sat naked on the sofa in the studio.
UK Metro reported that Laura Amherst, a protester for Extinction Rebellion, was invited to Thursday’s edition of This Morning to speak on why she uses her bold method to bring attention to her cause.
Sitting calmly on the sofa and displaying a protest banner that read ‘I protest topless to help save the planet,’ Laura told the presenters that in an ideal world, people would listen to what she had to say about climate change without having to go to extreme lengths to get their attention.
As the two presenters quizzed the guest about her activism, viewers looked on helplessly as she struggled to justify her appearance, which she claimed had fetched her the desired attention.
Twitter, just as other social media, was firea as mixed reactions poured in endlessly.
While certain social media users were livid, some felt she deserves to be commended for her bold appearance.
According to Anna Burton, "This naked protest woman is doing more harm than good to the climate campaign. Campaigns should focus on the serious issues rather than some woman taking her clothes off, which has no connection to climate change issues."
Chantal Mascoe, on the other hand, has another issue pricking his mind. "#ThisMorning is her bare bottom on that sofa?" he asked rhetorically.
However Andrew S begged to differ, "But all she’s doing doing is drawing attention to herself and NOT her campaign."
@IHEARTVEGAN seemed to concur with him, "Omg well done that topless woman!!! Speaking so well, so calmly and simply asking that you think about the cause and why these actions to draw attention and disrupt are neccesary. Amazing, well done."
