Former Top Gear and current The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson attacked 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg in a column for U.K tabloid The Sun, calling her a “spoilt brat” and telling her to “be a good girl” and “shut up.”

In response, Clarkson’s own daughter Emily pretty clearly subtweeted him while retweeting much more positive comments about Thunberg by comedian John Bishop.

Jeremy Clarkson had the nerve to pen a “column” directly yelling at Thunberg for daring to fight for action on climate change and rightfully dragging adults across the world for failing to do so in spite of many decades of warnings from scientists. In spite of all the bad press directed at other fully grown individuals who have attacked this passionate and desperate child who doesn’t see a future for herself, Clarkson wrote things like this:

“Many thousands of people who you had the temerity to blame this week are trying to do exactly what you want. So be a good girl, shut up and let them get on with it. And no. You cannot stay out past ten. And you cannot go out in a skirt that short.”

Nice bit of misogyny thrown in there for good measure.

The former Top Gear host was fired and ultimately caused the cancellation of the beloved program because he physically attacked one of the show’s production staff after he was offered soup and cold cuts instead of steak because the chef at the hotel he was staying at went home.

Prior to this, he was frequently in trouble for making bigoted and generally offensive comments, including using the n-word, making Nazi jokes, making insensitive comments about people with disabilities and suicide, and calling a former British Prime Minister the c-word.

Amazon later signed him and his co-hosts to make The Grand Tour in the U.S., though we’ll see how long that lasts while Jeremy is still like this.

Clarkson later responded to his daughter directly on Twitter, spouting more misogyny which Emily promptly threw right back into his face.

You have to be saying something really bad to get so brutally and publicly slammed by your own kid. Not to mention everyone else.

Is he really worth the trouble, Amazon?
