According to NzHerald, Swarbrick herself acknowledged that not all her feedback was positive, taking to Facebook to say: “Today I have learned that responding succinctly and in perfect jest to somebody heckling you about *your age* as you speak about the impact of climate change on *your generation* with the literal title of their generation makes some people very mad,” and added “So I guess millennials ruined humor. That, or we just need to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and abstain from avocados.”
